INFRAVATION

ERA-NET Plus on Infrastructure Innovation

Basic Information

Description

Transport ministries across Europe are facing ever tougher challenges to cope with the need to accommodate increased traffic growth, minimise congestion, maintain services in the face of increasing climate change effects, as well as deliver on environmental and societal objectives. This is the time when innovation for road infrastructure is an absolute imperative, to reduce costs without compromising on quality. To deliver this objective on a transnational basis, an ERA-NET PLUS action is being initiated that will enable national and regional bodies to take on tasks collectively that otherwise could not be taken forward. This scheme will allow for bringing together the efforts of member states, EC and industry. The first call of Infravation will be issued in 2014 and is expected to be supported through the FP7 2013 Work Programme. This call will address the needs of member states for joint research on road infrastructure. The funding for the call will be based on a common pot enabling the best expertise to be used, regardless of nationality and thereby minimising programme management allowing the maximum use of resources for pan-national research cooperation.
