The Project

Introduction

GHG-TransPoRD is a two years research project in the area of mitigation of GHG emissions of transport that is funded by EC DG-RTD under the European Commission 7th Research Framework Programme (FP7). It involves an international research team from Italy, Spain/EC, Belgium, United Kingdom and Germany and is coordinated by Fraunhofer-ISI.

The project aims at developing an integrated European strategy that links R&D efforts with other policies and measures to achieve substantial GHG emission reductions in transport that are in line with the overall GHG reduction targets of the EU. As part of this strategy, the project will propose GHG reduction targets for transport as a whole as well as for each transport mode for 2020 and 2050.

Such an activity should strongly be embedded into the stakeholder community including manufacturers, transport operators, transport users, science and NGOs. For this purpose the project has set-up a Stakeholder Council involving these groups as well as it will organize four workshops and a final conference to involve a larger audience.
