Call for Proposals - Transport 2012 DG MOVE FP7-TRANSPORT-2012-MOVE-1 Closed!

Objectives

The general objective of this call is to develop integrated, safer, “greener” and “smarter” pan-European transport systems based on technological and operational advances and on the European transport policy for the benefit of all citizens and society and climate policy, respecting the environment and natural resources; and securing and further developing the competitiveness attained by the European industries in the global market.

Reflecting the new political context and the priority given to the Innovation Union, a new approach has been adopted for Work Programme 2012 (WP 2012). This new approach is based on focusing on major socio-economic challenges and responding to societal concerns. The work programme is structured accordingly to these challenges and addresses the innovation cycle in its integrity, while respecting the rules of competition. The Transport theme takes a holistic ‘transport system’ approach in addressing the challenges and the innovation dimension, by considering the interactions of vehicles or vessels, networks or infrastructures and the use of transport services. Such an approach will necessitate the integration and demonstration of new concepts, knowledge and technologies, and the support to bringing them to the market within a socio-economic and policy context. Given the different structure and focus of the sectors, the theme is divided into sub-themes (accordingly with the Specific Programme) and horizontal activities:

  • 7.1. AERONAUTICS and AIR TRANSPORT (AAT)
  • 7.2. SUSTAINABLE SURFACE TRANSPORT (SST) including the ‘European Green Cars Initiative’
  • 7.3. HORIZONTAL ACTIVITIES for the implementation of the TRANSPORT PROGRAMME (TPT)
  • 7.4. GALILEO

In particular, this call looks for developing a high-level strategic transport model to scan transport policy options. This action should provide an IPR-free tool comprising passenger and freight transport for EU27 as well as all relevant components of transport modelling for the assessment of economic, social and environmental impacts of broad transport policy options.
