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
Past Transport RTD (Research and Technical Development) Programme (2001-2003/04) In compliance with the framework policies and programmes, an RTD programme for transport was prepared in 2001, called 'Optimisation of the Transport System and its Sustainable Development'. The main objective of the
The Operational Transport Programme 2007-2013 largely acts within the objective 'Convergence' of the EU's Cohesion Fund. It also implements important priorities and objectives of the National Transportation Policy in the period of time 2005-2013 of the Czech Republic.
Special attention is paid to
Basic transport research has not developed a comprehensive approach to a variety of factors, which, in practice, influence the behaviour of transportation systems. With regard to basic research, the knowledge base of both general and common models in the field of transportation, telecommunications
This programme was devoted to funding R&D projects which allow the development of the Strategic Plan of Infrastructure and Transport within the framework of the National Plan of Research +Development +Innovation 2004-2007. The last call was made in 2007 and 18 projects were accepted. All of them
Because public roads are fixed, have a long lifetime and are expensive, the development, maintenance, operation and reconstruction must be prepared with detailed research work. The development, operation and maintenance of public roads will be a national and communal duty also in the future, as will
According to recent projections, the volume of freight traffic is expected to rise from 371 billion tonne-km in 1997 to 608 billion tkm by the year 2015. This corresponds to an increase of 64.1 %. With an expected increase of 105 %, road transit through Germany will contribute a significant share to
The technologies that maintain the development of the Information Society are rapidly evolving. Although the advances in information and communication technologies are opening new and revolutionary possibilities, the present applications and technologies hardly allow us to catch sight of the
