Towards Smart, Green, Integrated, Transport

Project overview

EU procurement and transport

Public procurement accounts for approximately 17% of the EU’s GDP. This represents a significant contribution to the EU economy, driving innovation and supporting cross-fertilisation of ideas and good practices. The EU Seventh Programme for Research (FP7) will allocate at least €4 billion by the end of 2013 to fund EU research to develop safer, greener and smarter European transport systems for the benefit of all citizens. Topics are reducing climate impacts, promoting safe and clean vehicle, and developing effective infrastructure and alternative transportation modes.
