Organised by the European Commission, this second high-level stakeholders’ conference aimed to collect views on concrete measures to consider in the preparation of the new White Paper on the future of transport. It was held as a follow-up to the Communication on the Future on Transport, adopted by the Commission on 17 June 2009.
The TRKC team participated with a stand and distributed the latest policy brochures and information on European and national transport research programmes.
Speakers included Leif Zetterberg, State Secretary for Communications, Sweden and Matthias Ruete, Director General of the European Commission’s DG Transport and Energy. In opening the conference, the Vice President of the Commission and Commissioner in charge of Transport Policy, Antonio Tajani, emphasised the importance of transport infrastructure to all aspects of European policy, from the single market to international trade and from the environment to EU enlargement and neighbourhood policy.
