Growing needs in mobility and the simultaneous decrease of resources and their limited capacities require new solutions in policy in terms of research, innovation and technology. The previous programme 'IV2Splus' has already been successful in implementing projects. The BMVIT and the FFG continue
The Austrian Climate and Energy Fund aims at supporting Austria's innovative technological developments in industry and research which both in a short- and a medium-term perspective interconnect already initiated developments, complement them and enforce marketability.

Combined transport as a sustainable alternative to the road transport aims to carry goods in transit primarily on railways and waterways. The extension of combined transport leads to more road safety and less heavy traffic on the road network.
As a result of increasing global integration and societal mobility, the international aeronautics industry is experiencing dynamic growth. It is one of the most sophisticated sectors with a strong influence on other industry and service sectors and air traffic is expected to double in Europe by 2020
