Overview

Background & Policy context

Transport scientific research has to be headed to meet the needs of transport operators, infrastructure managers, central and local authorities and has to be based on sustainable development principles of the sector, which will assure Romanian research integration in the European Research Area.

The EU White Paper regarding the transport policy until 2010, published in 2001, points to the main directions research in this area has to follow. Special attention is given to the development of multimodal transport, as an alternative to road transport, which is much more expensive, pollutant and with higher accident risks.

 

This raises the need for development of interdisciplinary research, using complex networks of centres, institutes and universities with the aim to solve transport problems in Romania.

Objectives

The strategic research study STRARESTR aimed to analyse the state of the art of transport scientific research in Romania, to define the medium and long-term strategic objectives, the necessary resources (manpower, materials and financial resources) and the institutional organisation most adequate to be able to reach the goal.

The strategy of research includes fields of territory management, constructions and urbanism as these are interconnected with transport activity.

The main objective of the strategic study is to prepare the Romanian transport sector for EU integration and to prepare the Romanian transport research sector for integration into the European Research Area, by sustainable development and assuring the necessary logistics.

Methodology

The methodology used was a 'bottom-up' investigation from research specialists, transport operators, infrastructure managers to high qualified specialists from central and local administration, research and university centres.

 

The investigation was based on specific questionnaires on each transport modes and general questionnaires regarding the present and future in the transport field. These were the bases for developing the main directions for transport research, especially for transport rehabilitation and modernisation to meet the European transport standards.

The methodology was based on monitoring and evaluations of the works done on each phase, brainstorming meetings, tracking and reporting indicators, as well as on partial and final results disseminations.

Results

  • Analysis of the state of art of transport scientific research in Romania;
  • Definition of the strategic objectives on medium an long time ( the necessary resources (manpower, materials and financial resources) and the institutional organisation most adequate to be able to reach the goal;
  • Development of a research strategy includes fields of territory management, constructions and urbanism because these are interconnected with transport activity.

Main directions for scientific research and technological development in transports:

  • Partnership, cooperation and integration;
  • Modernisation of operating technologies;
  • Modernisation of transport infrastructure;
  • Increase in traffic safety;
  • Environmental protection in transports.

Among the objectives established for scientific research and technological development in transports the following can be listed:

  • Development of the multimodal transport, through the combination of the road, rail and maritime technologies;
  • Development of transport logistics centres on the European corridors across Romania;
  • Usage of electronic maps and navigation systems;
  • Elaboration of data bases for investment analysis in transport infrastructure, as well as for traffic, cost and tariff development;
  • Establish the conditions necessary for the application of the EU standards in road transport;
  • Increase life quality through a sustainable development of the transport sector, in accordance with the EU White Paper;
  • Intelligent transport systems and systems for managing the exploitation of transport infrastructure;
  • Reduce power consumption in transport sector;
  • Elaborate methodologies on staff recruitment and selection per transport branches;
  • Strategies for mitigating negative environmental impacts generated by public and private transport;
  • Development of urban and sub-urban transport according to EU Agenda XXI; etc.

Policy implications

  • The project prepares the Romanian transport sector for EU integration and also prepares the Romanian transport research sector for integration into the European Research Area, by sustainable development and assuring the necessary logistics;
  • Among the main elements of the research strategy is the promotion of the multimode transport as an alternative to road transport, which is much more expensive, pollutant and with higher accident risks.
