FUture prospects on TRansport evolution and innovation challenges for the competitiveness of Europe

Data produced in FUTRE Deliverable 2.1, regarding the private investment in transport research and development were used in the EU Transport Scoreboard. For more information, please click here.

FUTRE project will highlight which future challenges and demand drivers can have a considerable impact on the global demand patterns in the passenger and the freight transport and how this might affect the competitiveness of related industries and service providers. In doing so, it aims at bridging the gap between the manifold studies on the future of the European transport system and its subsections on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the issue of competitiveness that needs to be supported by targeted research strategies.

The objective of FUTRE is to investigate the challenges for the European transport sector in the long term and to develop strategic options for European transport research policy. With these objectives, FUTRE fits very well in the EU transport policy and its goals.
