EP Resolution on a European transport-technology strategy


Addressing the Commission’s Communication on “Research and innovation for Europe’s future mobility – Developing a European transport-technology strategy” released in September 2012, the European Parliament has adopted an ad-hoc Resolution.
Can Europe achieve a smarter and safer transport system, coping with pressing environmental and economic challenges? An affirmative answer relies on higher incentives to R&I, investment in the ITS sector, harmonisation efforts and simplification of administrative procedures to overcome barriers and stimulate market uptake. With the Resolution , the European Parliament has acknowledged the significance of research and innovation in support of a sustainable transport policy.
