Position papers

In view of supporting European policies and programmes as well as pushing towards an integrated, efficient and sustainable transport system, ECTRI provides independent and evidence-based advice to decision makers in Europe and hence keeps close contact and interacts with the European Commission (EC) services dealing with transport research (DG RDI, MOVE and CONNECT). More particularly, ECTRI issues position papers to input Framework- and Work-Programmes (FP6, FP7 & H2020) and to respond to relevant consultations of the EC in the field of transport.
