Aim of the joint call The overall theme of the call is to promote trans-European research into new and innovative scientific knowledge in the research field of Road User Charging. The focus is on passenger vehicles, but relevant issues for freight transport may be incorporated. The call is based on true cooperation across borders to build on shared European research competence. And proposals should draw on European research excellence and cooperation. The joint call covers both policy and technology oriented research and development (R&D).
