The Specific Programme of SC4 “Smart, green and integrated transport” is structured in four
broad lines of activities aiming at:
a) Resource efficient transport that respects the environment. The aim is to minimise
transport’s systems’ impact on climate and the environment (including noise, air and water
pollution) by improving its efficiency in the use of natural resources, and by reducing its
dependence on fossil fuels and energy imports.
b) Better mobility, less congestion, more safety and security. The aim is to reconcile the
growing mobility needs with improved transport fluidity, through innovative solutions for
seamless, inclusive, affordable, safe, secure and robust transport systems that make full use of
modern information and communication technologies (ICT) capabilities.
c) Global leadership for the European transport industry. The aim is to reinforce the
competitiveness and performance of European transport manufacturing industries and related
services on global markets including logistic processes and retain areas of European
leadership (e.g. such as aeronautics).
d) Socio-economic and behavioural research and forward looking activities for policy
making. The aim is to support improved policy making which is necessary to promote
innovation and meet the challenges raised by transport, including the internalisation of
external costs, and the societal needs related to it. Socio-economic research is also an
important instrument for reaching the objectives under this programme.
