The Challenge Smart, green and integrated transport, under the Horizon 2020 programme, aims to boost the competitiveness of the European transport industries and achieve a European transport system that is resource-efficient, climate-and-environmentally-friendly, safe and seamless for the benefit of all citizens, the economy and society. The Challenge will contribute to four key objectives, each supported by specific activities:
resource efficient transport that respects the environment;
better mobility, less congestion, more safety and security;
global leadership for the European transport industry;
socio-economic and behavioural research and forward looking activities for policy making.
