CONCAWE Review • Spring 2005
ERTRAC was established in 2002 as an ‘Advisory Council’ with a view to improving European research in the road transport sector. Its first objectives were to develop a shared Vision of road transport in 2020+ and an associated Strategic Research Agenda (SRA). The Vision was published in June 2004, closely followed by the SRA in December. Both are publicly available from www.ertrac.org. CONCAWE has specifically contributed to the Energy and Environment section of ERTRAC’s Vision and SRA. With ERTRAC now firmly established as a unique multi-stakeholder group, the next stage provides real opportunities to improve European research in this area.
