Climate-friendly freight network

Basic Information

Network ENT II
Aim of the joint call Freight transport is essential for economic development and efficient transport and distribution of freight is at the top of the wish list for many countries. A lot of research has already gone into making freight transport systems efficient, cost effective and reliable at the lowest possible cost for the environment. A new emerging transnational funding initiative under ERA-NET TRANSPORT wants to push European knowledge even further. The basic consideration is to set only a wide thematic framework and to provide room for researchers to develop high quality project ideas. The following main topics will be of interest i. Urban freight distribution ii. Long-distance transport and the freight transport corridors iii. Intermodality on freight transport iv. Intelligent logistics Due to national research priorities and provisions in national calls, not all themes can be funded by all national programmes.
