Key research to solve mobility barriers
Vice-President Siim Kallas, responsible for transport said “Transport 2050 is a roadmap for a competitive transport sector that increases mobility and cuts emissions. We can and we must do both. The widely held belief that you need to cut mobility to fight climate change is simply not true. Competitive transport systems are vital for Europe's ability to compete in the world, for economic growth, job creation and for peoples' everyday quality of life. Curbing mobility is not an option; neither is business as usual. We can break the transport system's dependence on oil without sacrificing its efficiency and compromising mobility. It can be win–win." [IP/11/372]. This will impact drastically infrastructure networks within cities and between cities.
This presentation will focus mainly on road and rail transport and will pave the way of key research topics to be addressed to overcome the mobility barriers.Key research to solve mobility barriers
