Europe therefore needs to redefine its transport system for the 21st century.

Tougher challenges

NRA across Europe are facing ever tougher challenges to cope with the need to accommodate increased traffic growth, congestion, maintain services in the face of increasing climate change effects, as well as deliver on environmental and societal objectives.

Europe therefore needs to redefine its transport system for the 21st century.

This is the time when innovation for road infrastructure is an absolute imperative, to reduce costs without compromising on quality.

INFRAVATION for infrastructure innovation

INFRAVATION aims at developing such innovations, focusing on advanced systems, materials and techniques for road infrastructure.

This ambition will be implemented through an ERA-NET PLUS, in which Member States and the European Commission join in generating the required funding.

This infrastructure innovation initiative will reside under the ERA-NET scheme, since it can enable national systems to take on tasks collectively that otherwise could not be implemented nationally.

The funding for the call will be based on a common pot enabling the best expertise to be used, regardless of nationality.

The objective of INFRAVATION is to generate by 2017 innovative solutions for today’s road infrastructure problems and methods for implementation whilst at the same time improve the cost-performance ratio of the infrastructure by 50%.
