Strengthening European Transport Research and Innovation Strategies

Research and innovation strategies towards an integrated transport system between all transport modes in Europe.

The SETRIS project (Strengthening European Transport Research and Innovation Strategies) federates for the first time all major transport related European Technology Platforms (ETPs) into a single collaborative initiative. Its aim is to produce a cohesive approach to innovation and research strategies for all transport modes at the European level.

The most important task in fulfilling this goal is to update the strategic, research and innovation agendas (SRIAs) of the different ETPs within a multi-modal and integrated transport system framework. It will be needed for a later identification of synergies between them and relevant national platforms’ agendas. This work will highlight not only innovations or research activities that need to be done but also the changes in governance that are required to facilitate these Agendas. Furthermore, it will drive the transport sector to a more multimodal system in a coordinated framework.

Subsequently, the project defines the implementation of those steps. A complementary task addresses the need to benchmark past and present rail-related research initiatives and projects in order to assess the viability of different research topics and the potential market uptake of the results.
