1 ™ 1 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Planning the future ERTRAC European Road Transport Research Advisory Council..towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System

2 ™ 2 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Why ERTRAC? Road transport is a complex, multi-stakeholder system Road transport, one of the largest sectors in Europe: – 20% GDP contribution, – 9% workforce – 30% R&D expenditure – 40,000 deaths per year – 20% CO2 ERTRAC addresses all the challenges of European Road Transport

3 ™ 3 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System All major Road Transport Stakeholders are represented in ERTRAC, through their associations, together with representatives of the EU and Member States. ERTRAC members

4 ™ 4 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Mission of ERTRAC Provides the framework to overcome the challenges facing the sector: Provide a strategic vision for the road transport sector, with respect to R&D; Set out strategies and roadmaps to achieve this vision through the Strategic Research Agenda and other associated documents; Stimulate increased and more effective public and private investment in R&D in the road transport sector; Contribute to improving co-operation between EC, national, regional and private R&D actions on road transport within the European Research Area; Enhance networking and clustering of the R&D capacity in Europe; Promote European commitment to RTD thus ensuring Europe an attractive location for researchers.

5 ™ 5 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Systems approach to major challenges

6 ™ 6 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System ERTRAC’s unique position Road transport sector is heterogeneous with so different stakeholders; car-industry, suppliers, oil-industry, telecoms, infrastructure, regional groupings etc. Via ERTRAC, all those players find a platform to discuss / monitor the research needed for the future. For global competitiveness in road transport, many societal issues like safety, environment / energy and mobility / congestion have to be taken into account. ERTRAC covers research topics, which are driven and accepted by society and politics.

7 ™ 7 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System ERTRAC’s unique position In ERTRAC’s broad spectrum of stakeholders many other non research issues / needs are to be taken into account - standards, regulatory, liability etc. ERTRAC has the goal to overcome the fragmentation of road transport research in the Europe of more than 27 different nations. ERTRAC increasingly links "National Programmes" and is seeking to initiate activities for national research in line with a wider European strategy.

9 ™ 9 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System ERTRAC process

10 ™ 10 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System ERTRAC research framework ERTRAC will  actively promote and structure key research from a Road Transport System perspective through  recommendation of sector spreading research needs to bring together the necessary different stakeholders and thus to improve the implementation of our Research Framework

11 ™ 11 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System ERTRAC’s current priorities address the following urgent transport system needs: Future long distance freight transport Urban mobility To achieve this in a green, safe and smart way, enabling technologies are designed for: The intelligent vehicle and infrastructure Road transport Safety Sustainable energy for road transport Competitive EU Production in a global context ERTRAC research framework

12 ™ 12 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Basic main tasks of ERTRAC develop and provide scenarios for future road transport, including scenarios from related ETP’s, concluding recommended strategies and technologies from these scenarios develop a Implementation Plan, harmonised with other relevant ETPs road maps and implementation plans identify bottlenecks and necessary actions towards (industrial) implementations formulate, promote and propose cross-cutting R&D recommendations

13 ™ 13 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System ERTRAC Working Groups To date there are four Research Areas (pillars) Mobility, transport and infrastructure Safety and security Energy, environment and resources Design and production Now we are focusing on four Strategic Research Priorities (former horizontal topics / challenges) Urban Mobility Energy and Environment Long Distance Transport Safety & Security Electrification is one current priority issue.

14 ™ 14 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Aims of the process The task of the WGs is to develop and provide Scenarios to (2050) formulate, promote and propose cross-cutting R&D identify bottlenecks and necessary actions 1 st step: “Top Ten” Scenario analysis 2 nd step: Consenus of common criteria for all WGs 3 rd step: Key factors fact sheet 4 th step: Expert workshops and last cross-check 5 th step: Establish scenarios and use

16 ™ 16 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Future of ETPs - EC review 1.EC ‘clearly and unambiguously continue to support the ETP concept’ 2.Fine-tune the concept and underlying objectives 3.Fragmentation between ETPs anticipated and remedied where needed 4.Member States to facilitate the operations of ETPs 5.Establish/communicate clear rules & procedures 6.Ensure that the ‘ETP label’ is “quality label” 7.Support in developing an international dimension 8.Involvement of ETPs in policy preparation processes

17 ™ 17 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Future of ETPs - EC review Move beyond scientific and technological challenges Focus on socio-economic challenges with clear benefits for Europe Be aware of potential fragmentation between platforms and remedy where needed (collaboration!) Move to stage 3: ‘implementation’ Pay more attention to fund-raising and financial engineering Further internationalise activities to outside the EU Devote sufficient attention to the professionalization of an ETP's internal processes and organisation (including monitoring processes)

19 ™ 19 of 21 …towards a greener, safer and smarter European Road Transport System Our belief The challenges facing Europe’s road sector are considerable; Europe’s future depends on how its road transport system develops. Our common market, our social integration and our industries. ERTRAC is based on the common understanding that through innovation; collaborative research and development; solutions can and will be found to all the present and coming challenges. ERTRAC will support its members to promote their shared aims
