The FUTURE-RADAR project will support the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC), which is a European Technology Platform, and the European Green Vehicle Initiative PPP to create and implement the needed research and innovation strategies for a sustainable and competitive European road transport system. Linking all relevant stakeholders, FUTURE-RADAR will provide consensus-based plans and roadmaps addressing the key societal, environmental, economic, and technological challenges in areas such as road transport safety, urban mobility, long distance freight transport, automated road transport, global competitiveness and all issues related to energy and environment. FUTURE-RADAR will also facilitate exchange between cities in Europa, Asia, and Latin America on urban electric mobility solutions. The FUTURE-RADAR activities include project monitoring, strategic research agendas, international assessments, and recommendations for innovation deployment as well as twinning of international projects and comprehensive dissemination and awareness activities. Overall it can be stated that FUTURE-RADAR provides the best opportunity to maintain, strengthen, and widen the activities to further develop the multi-stakeholder road transport research area for the high-quality research of societal and industrial relevance in Europe.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 723970.
