STA in Action

30 Jun STA, involved in the European Commission’s Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA)

STA has contributed to the definition of the EU’s Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA), which intends to support the development and deployment of innovative low-carbon technologies and solutions for transport and mobility.

Dr Elena de la Peña, Chair of the STA Technical Committee 1 (Smart Mobility), and Prof José Manuel Vassallo, Chair of STA Technical Committee 4 (Smart Financing), have served as official ‘rapporteurs’ to the ‘Transport Infrastructure’ sub-report.  In addition, José F. Papí, STA Chairman, was also invited to contribute as an expert to the same thematic area.

For each thematic area (7 in total), STRIA has developed a roadmap outlining the steps needed to support and speed up the research, innovation and deployment process of innovative technologies. The work accomplished defines the future transport R&I policy options available to the European Commission’s goals (reduce GHG, reduce energy consumption, and promote economic wealth).
