TRANSFORuM partnership invited for project negotiations


Following a very positive evaluation result the European Commission has invited the TRANSFORuM project for official project negotiations. The proposal gained 14 out of 15 points in the recent call of 7th European Framework Programme.

The TRANSFORuM project is proposed by a consortium of eleven well connected, but independent and experienced policy advisers and researchers from across nine European countries who offer a “fresh approach” helping to implement four key goals of the European Transport White Paper. The project will initiate a discussion forum of relevant actors by organising meetings and thematic groups on the four selected White Paper goals. The forum will form the environment for a balanced and open discussion process with special attention to research and innovation. It will be linked with relevant related activities and networks. TRANSFORuM will produce concrete implementation-oriented outputs, including recommendations and roadmaps of joint actions as required by the actors and stakeholders.  The eleven project partners will be:
  • Rupprecht Consult – Forschung & Beratung GmbH (Project Coordinator)
  • Statens Väg- och transportforskningsinstitut
  • Uniwersytet Gdański
  • Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique
  • AustriaTech – Gesellschaft des Bundes für technologiepolitische Maßnahmen GmbH
  • Danmarks Tekniske Universitet
  • The Chancellor, Masters and Scholars of the University of Oxford
  • Centrum dopravního výzkumu, v.v.i.
  • Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan
  • Karlsruher Institut für Technologie
  • Transportøkonomisk institutt
