New European transport research program

The European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC) exposed its strategic research program, underlining the importance of mobility improvement and reduction of noise and pollution.

In the field of individual mobility, the research program aims at providing the relevant solutions to satisfy the expected 32% growth in demand by 2020. Focus will be made on land use, social trends and behaviours and mobility management of existing infrastructures. Solutions will be explored in the fields of multimodal interfaces, information provision and innovative mobility concepts.

Actions undertaken to tackle noise and pollution are based on two main goals: reducing greenhouse effect gases, which reduce energy demand, and assessing impact on environment, in particular on communities and natural habitats. The research will cover technological solutions, infrastructure design and behavioural analysis.
