Transport and the Environment

Event date


ETTAR (Environmental Technologies, Training and Awareness-Raising) has been established to identify and assess training needs, methods and activities for the wider use of environmental technologies in the transportation sector. ETTAR runs from April 2007 to September 2008 comprising three workshops and a final conference. ETTAR is a coordinated action plan under the 6th EU Framework Programme.

The first workshop in Gothenburg will discuss potentials of and barriers to an enforced use of environmental technologies. The workshop will cover road-transport as well as transport by ship, train and aircraft and will specifically focus on freight transport. It will bring together key players from industry, the logistic sector, politics, NGOs, research institutions and think tanks.
