The German Maritime Research Strategy 2025 offers two funding initiatives including the “Maritime Research Programme” that supports the national research community as well as the industry for ship-building and marine technologies. Project Management Jülich (Forschungszentrum Jülich) coordinates both
Large public organisations tend to create a huge amount of knowledge through commissioned research studies. However, making use of this knowledge often is difficult as technical or scientific reports may be voluminous and/or difficult to digest for non-expert readers.
As mobility is an important part of our life, and the interconnectedness of the economy leads to more and more transport, we expect to see significant growth in freight as well as in passenger transport in the future. Forecasts predict that the global vehicle population – currently about 1.2 billion
innovITS was set up in the UK as a Centre of Excellence for Transport Telematics and Sustainable Mobility, in response to recommendations from the Automotive Innovation & Growth Team (AIGT). innovITS focuses on innovation in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), which have the potential
The DGAC plays a central role in the world of air transport. A directorate of the French Ministry of Transport (Ministère des Transports, de l'Equipement, du Tourisme et de la Mer), its foremost missions are to guarantee the safety and security of air transport in French airspace and at airports and
The transport sector has a high energy dependency and environmental impacts. It remains a major cause of pollution and noise and has impacts on ecosystems and landscapes. Limiting these problems is of key importance and a requirement of France's international commitments (Kyoto protocol). To achieve
Significant progress has been made in the reduction of polluting emissions from vehicles: direct emissions from private vehicles have been reduced, certain emissions from diesel vehicles can be limited with specific filters. However, progress still has to be made in noise and pollution reduction
Research on comfort and ergonomics cannot be totally dissociated from safety issues. The driver's position, the quality of air temperature or acoustics play a great part in the general comfort of passenger compartment. The overlaps between different modes of transport are developed, which does not
