The TransNEW Project is part of the Coordination and Support Actions for the EU Framework 7 Programme, aimed at supporting transport research activities in the new Member States. It also stimulates, encourages and facilitates the participation of the new Member States and particularly of the SMEs in those countries in national, regional and European research.

For 2011, the TransNEW Consortium has planned for 2011 a series of workshops in different regions of Europe to inform potential users about research capabilities and good practices in the transport sector and to create new opportunities for all users.

Research Capabilities and Potentials Workshops are scheduled to take place in Vilnius (Baltic States), Prague (Central Europe), Belgrade (West Balkans - May 27, 2011) and Istanbul (South Balkan and Mediterranean; June 3. 2011). These workshops will become a useful forum for exchanging ideas and  sharing information with EC officials and experienced partners but above all for learning how to work together to prepare joint proposals. This will prove to be particularly important for new member states and candidate countries that may have difficulties in grasping the intricacies of participate in Europe-wide
projects.

Research Opportunities Workshops are scheduled to take place in Riga (Baltic States), Budapest (Central Europe), Ljubljana (West Balkans - September 30, 2011) and Bucharest (South Balkan and Mediterranean; September 21, 2011).

The object of these workshops will be the creation of a database of prospective project partners which will hopefully continue to grow after the end of the TransNEW project.

The following countries are covered by the project under the title "Western Balkans": Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo (under UNCSR 1244), FYR of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. Albania is covered by the "Southern Balkans and Mediterranean area".
