CEDR Research Call 2019(2) is open as of 21 September 2020 with the following programme: Safe Smart Highways.
The CEDR Transnational Research Programme (TRP) operates through a series of annual transnational calls on topics that address the needs of European road authorities. The aim is to produce research results that can be implemented by CEDR members and contribute to a safe, sustainable and efficient road network across Europe. It is funded by CEDR members on a voluntary basis. Participation is open to any legal entity, though all consortia must be led by a legal entity from a European country.
Call 2019(2) has one research programme. This programme was prepared via extensive consultation among CEDR members about their research needs under this topic.
Call Topic: Safe Smart Highways
The aim of this programme is to identify, consider and gain an overview and greater understanding of existing measures to increase capacity of highways within National Road Authorities (NRAs), without compromising road safety. In this way, NRAs can learn from other NRAs and all NRAs can profit of new insights of safety effects of these capacity increasing measures. This research programme will examine ways of increasing the capacity of highways without compromising, or even improving, road safety. Gaps in knowledge will be identified and new empirical data will be gathered to fill these gaps.
Call 2019(2) will be launched and managed by the CEDR member from Denmark – the Danish Road Directorate.
All questions about the launch of Call 2019(2) should be directed to the Programme Manager: Per Antvorskov, Danish Road Directorate, firstname.lastname@example.org
A pre-announcement of the launch of Call 2019(2) has been made on the Official Journal of the European Union here.
Full information on the Call, including the Description of Research Needs, is published on the website of the Programme Manager here.
The deadline for submissions is 08 December 2020 (12 noon CET).
