SINTRAS – final report has been published

This report presents the final results of the SINTRAS study to examine the barriers to innovation in the fragmented European transport system - and to propose actions to overcome them. The Europe Union faces the challenge of meeting growing demand for transport with shrinking public financial resources, while reducing environmental impacts, cutting greenhouse gas emissions, reducing dependency on imported hydrocarbons and lowering accident rates.
