TransNEW Project

The TransNEW project was launched on January 1st, 2010 and aims to map the transport research potential in all the New Member and Associated States.  The project has a key role in supporting transport research activities in the New Member and Associated States of Europe by stimulating, encouraging and facilitating the participation of the New Member States and particularly Small to Medium Sized enterprises in national, regional and European research.

TransNEW covers all transport modes including Aeronautics and aims to exploit the synergies between air transport and surface transport. This means that the national transport research capability for 26 Countries will be defined and this information will be available to all through the use of a publicly accessible user-friendly database. 

The main objectives of the TransNEW project are:

to assess the research capabilities and capacities of New Member and Associated States of 26 Countries by gathering their data of transport research
to analyse and assess the research results and determine the gaps in the transport research policy of the investigated countries
promote the participation of new researchers and organisations (especially SMEs) in FP7 projects
Develop an International database that will highlight the strengths and weaknesses in transport research both country and region-wide.  It is an aim of the project to make this database available for public access via the internet to enable networking and partner searching.  The database will continue to grow after the life of the project as information can be directly input by any interested parties.
