FEHRL gives key input to European Parliament Transport Committee on Horizon 2020

FEHRL outlines 10 reasons why transport infrastructure research is needed in Horizon 2020 for European Parliament Transport Committee.

 

The European Parliament’s Transport Committee has recently been focusing on the transport theme in Horizon 2020. The rapporteur for transport, Nathalie GRIESBECK, French MEP  responsible for providing amendments to the text, has reported that the main emphasis should be energy and the impact on climate and therefore engines, batteries and innovative infrastructure. She also referred to the need for ‘quality infrastructure - innovative and multimodal'. Ines AYALA SEDER, a Spanish MEP, argued for more safety (infrastructure, vehicles and users), which was later supported by Isabelle DURANT of Belgium, who focussed on the safety of those working in the sector. And the biggest emphasis was on the urban dimension.  

The deadline for proposals for amendments from the Transport Committee is 23rd August (for voting in September) and, to give key input on infrastructure, FEHRL has produced  “10 reasons why transport infrastructure research is needed in Horizon 2020” and submitted it to key members of the Transport Committee.
