This study identifies 797 technologies falling within 45 technology themes from 2242 transport related European Framework Programmes from the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS) database. The technologies have been assessed for their innovation potential on the basis of relevant criteria (total investment, number of projects that have researched the technology, number of organisations involved, technology development phase, etc.). A full report forthcoming in the second half of this year will provide the complete assessment together with detailed policy recommendations.
