Abstract: The European Commission's vision for a more competitive and sustainable transport in Europe has been outlined in the recent Transport White Paper (WP). The Transport WP sets out to remove major barriers and bottlenecks in key areas across the fields of: transport infrastructure and investment, innovation and the internal market. The aim is to create a Single European Transport Area with more competition and a fully integrated transport network which links the different modes and allows for a profound shift in transport patterns for passengers and freight. To this purpose, the Transport WP puts forward 40 concrete initiatives for the next decade, including technological as well as non-technological measures. The Strategic Transport Technology Plan (STTP), addressing the technology pillar of the White Paper, is hence designed to contribute to these objectives in the mid-term. The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) undertook the responsibility to produce this scientific assessment, as a contribution to the STTP preparation. The assessment took place from November 2010 to August 2011 and covered all transport sectors and issues.
