Waterborne transport (2010) - new updated Thematic Research Summary


There is a growing imbalance between modes of transport in the European Union – the growing success of road and air transport is resulting in worsening congestion, which could be helped by a greater focus on waterborne transport. This paper provides a structured guide to the results of Research and Technical Development projects relating to Waterborne Transport, carried out in transport research programmes throughout the European Research Area. The new TRS on Waterborne Transport has been updated for 2010 and is available for download from the Thematic publications section of the TRKC website
