Projects for electric vehicles should figure prominently among potential beneficiaries, since the ERTRAC
has made this a research priority for the coming years.
The technical platforms built over the past few years (ACARE in the aeronautics sector), ERRAC (rail sector) and ERTRAC
(road transport) whose strategies largely influenced the drafting of the programme, clearly demonstrate the need for these initiatives.
It will simply have taken a little longer to set up than existing platforms for roads (ERTRAC
), rail (ERRAC) and aviation (ACARE).
The European Road Transport Research Council (ERTRAC
) held its first meeting on June 25.
