Call for Proposals – Transport (TPT) FP7-TPT-2011-RTD-1 Closed!

Objectives

Horizontal Activities for the implementation of the Transport Programme (TPT)

The Transport (including Aeronautics) theme aims to support a number of topics that exploit the synergies between air transport and the surface transport modes and that can make a contribution to the common objectives of advancing competitiveness, anticipating and responding to the socio-economic and environmental challenges of the transport system.

Potential proposers' attention is drawn on the need in this call to address intermodality, comodality and – in general – concerns that are common or anyhow of interest to more than one transport mode.

Particular attention is dedicated to these activities in the 2011 calls to increasing leverage effects and avoiding fragmentation of efforts. EU added-value cross-modal activities of policy and socio-economic character for implementing Transport programme are included in the
TPT 2011 call. Other activities of this character but focused on particular transport modes, as well as cross-cutting actions involving S&T research are detailed in the AAT and SST 2011 calls including the EGCI.

These activities address:

  • Socio-economic research and technology foresight
  • Integration of transport modes
  • Cross-cutting research
  • Strengthening the European Research Area
  • Dissemination, awareness of research results and innovation
