Sustainable Transport and Mobility Programme 2012-2013



Sustainable Transport and Mobility Programme 2012-2013
Transports Durables et Mobilité (TDM)

Background & policy context: 

The Sustainable Transport and Mobility Programme (TDM) is the evolution of the Land Transport Development Programme from 2011 (TTD). The programme changed its name in 2012, since then it covers not only the development of all land transports but also air fields and naval topics.

The precursor of these programmes was the Vehicle Land Transport Programme (ATV).

Strategic Objectives: 

The Sustainable Transport and Mobility Programme enables the development of land, air and naval sectors. The aim is to improve communication between the scientific communities of different areas.

Programme objectives are:

  • Increase the energy efficiency of vehicles and transport systems and reduce their impact on the environment in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and local pollutants regulated and / or unregulated, and noise.
  • Increase the quality, reliability and safety of transport systems maintaining high accessibility and high productivity.
Programme organisation: 

The Sustainable Transport and Mobility Programme is open to French-German projects from the DEUFRAKO cooperation (German-French cooperation in the field of transport research). The programme forms a part of the shares of the interdepartmental programme PREDIT4 and is organised in three different subjects which address systemic issues of transportation on three different scales:

  • Powertrains
  • Vehicles and transport modes
  • Transport systems.
Leading Institutions:

L'Agence nationale de la recherche (The French National Research Agency)
