1 EUTRAIN Europe Neighbourhood Cooperation Countries (incl. Russia, CIS, Black Sea, Balkan States) 3rd Regional Workshop Moscow, Russia 5-6 December 2012 Frank SMIT Directorate Transport "Horizontal aspects" DG Research and Innovation European Commission

2 Global transport trends to 4 times passenger/kms 2.5 to 3.5 times ton/kms 2.5 to 3 times CO 2 emissions from vehicles car ownership per capita: big increase (despite saturation) center of gravity shift to emerging/developing countries (Asia) competition gets tougher, innovation is the key new technologies and targeted policies become global imperatives to improve fuel economy, transform the energy basis of transport the geography of the challenges is changing, the geometry of the solutions must be adapted

3 White Paper 2011: roadmap to a single European transport area Horizon 2020: the framework programme for research and innovation (the proposal) EU international strategy for research and innovation

4 Old challenges remain but new have come Increasing competitive pressure in the global economy Increasing oil price and persistent oil dependency A deteriorating climate and local environment Growing congestion and poorer accessibility. An infrastructure gap in the enlarged EU Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area 4

5 Meeting the challenge.to meet the challenges, transport has to: use less energy use cleaner energy exploit efficiently a multimodal, integrated and intelligent network Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area 5

6 The vision Passengers Freight Long-distance travel and intercontinental freight Intercity travel and transport Urban transport and commuting Adequate capacity and improved overall travel experience (efficient links between airports and rail, minimum hassle for personal security screening ) Seamless multimodal travel (online multimodal info and ticketing, multimodal hubs ) Quality service and enforced passengers rights Near-zero casualties for road Non-fossil mobility (Clean and efficient cars; Higher share of public transport; Alternative propulsion for urban buses and taxis; Better infrastructure for walking and cycling) High global maritime standards More efficient hinterland connections for ports Modern vessels and cleaner fuels for shipping Paperless logistics Multimodal long-distance freight corridors No barriers to maritime transport Cleaner trucks on shorter distances Better interface between long distance and last-mile Freight consolidation centres and delivery points ITS for better logistics Low-noise and low-emission trucks for deliveries Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area 6

7 Ten Goals for competitive and resource efficient transport Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 60% Increase the efficiency & capacity of the transport system Close to zero accidents & higher customer satisfaction Drive conventional cars out of the cities & optimise urban logistics Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area 7

8 White Paper 2011: roadmap to a single European transport area Horizon 2020: the framework programme for research and innovation (the proposal) EU international strategy for research and innovation

9 Horizon 2020 The European Commission's proposal to generate ideas, growth and jobs through the world's largest collaborative programme for research and innovation ( )

10 The proposal More ,00 million (current prices, ) Wider From research to innovation Simpler More flexible & user friendly funding approach Together Continued stakeholder engagement Shift to a challenge based approach Need to focus resources on limited number of major challenges

11 Three priorities 32% 23% 41% Transport (21% = 7.7bn) JRC & EIT I. Excellent science (New ideas) II. Industrial leadership (New markets) III. Societal challenges (New needs)

12 III. Societal challenges Proposed funding: million 1. Health, demographic change & wellbeing Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine & maritime research & the bio-economy Secure, clean & efficient energy* Smart, green & integrated transport Climate action, resource efficiency & raw materials Inclusive, innovative & secure societies (*) Additional 2020m for nuclear safety & security from the Euratom Treaty activities ( ). It does not include ITER

13 Smart, green & integrated transport Resource efficient transport that respects the environment sustainable Better mobility, less congestion, more safety & security seamless Global leadership for the European transport industry competitive Socio-economic research & forward looking activities for policy making responsive

14 A balanced approach Holistic view Sustainability Socio-economics Modal specifics Competitiveness Technology

15 What's next? On-going July 2012 Mid-2013 Negotiations on Horizon 2020 and total EU budget (MFF ) by European Parliament & European Council Final calls FP7 for research to bridge the gap towards Horizon 2020 Adoption of legislative acts by European Parliament & European Council of Horizon January 2014 Horizon 2020 starts, launch of first calls

16 White Paper 2011: roadmap to a single European transport area Horizon 2020: the framework programme for research and innovation (the proposal) EU international strategy for research and innovation

17 International cooperation: a must GHG emissions, oil dependency, traffic congestion, passenger safety, transport security, : global challenges call for global solutions most future transport growth outside Europe: access to knowledge and markets becomes more important transport increasingly global, new competitors emerge, but also new opportunities for collaboration economic and social dynamics beyond Europe s borders call for closer links and greater cooperation global standards and interoperability of systems are more necessary than ever

18 Transport policy, external dimension work within international organisations to ensure market opening, standard setting promote worldwide standards on safety, security, privacy, environmental impact, extend EU transport infrastructure and policy to our immediate neighbours open up transport markets to free competition and environmentally sustainable solutions establish robust research and innovation partnerships with international partners

19 EU International cooperation in Transport R&I H2020 general objectives: excellence, competitiveness, support to policies main drivers for international cooperation in transport R&I global challenges, common problems cross-border interoperability international standards and global systems access to knowledge, access to markets mutual benefit, without hampering competition from bottom-up/top-down to focus and impact primarily with leading partner countries and neighbouring countries reciprocity and mutual access synergies with Member States activities

20 Policy framework EU-Russia Cooperation in S&T forms a central element of EU- Russian Federation relations Policy background Common Space in Research & Education, including Cultural Matters Cooperation Agreements in S&T EU, pan-european and global programmes and initiatives (ITER, CERN, etc.) FP7 Russia continues to be the most successful, international cooperation partner country Some 391 Russian organisations are involved in 264 signed FP7 grant agreements, receiving over 45,6 M of EU funding (2011)

21 Russian Co-operation in FP7 Transport (WP ) 72 participations, 41 projects AAT: 56 participations, 34 projects SST: 16 participations, 7 projects Project total costs: 615M (AAT: 593; SST: 22M) Project EC contribution: 381M (AAT: 365M; SST: 16M) Participant total costs: 24M (AAT: 23M; SST: 0,8M) Participant EC contribution: 14M (AAT: 14M; SST: 0,6M) Main participants Russian Central Aerodynamics Institute TsAGI Baranov Central Institute of Aviation Motors Development CIAM Moscow State University of Railway Engineering MIIT (SST)

22 Russian Co-operation in FP7 Transport (WP 2013) 43 participations, 21 projects Project total costs: 199M Project EC contribution: 117M Participant total costs: 22M Participant EC contribution: 6M Call identifiers FP7-AAT-2013-RTD-1 (closed) FP7-AAT-2013-Russia (closed) FP7-AAT-2013-HIGH SPEED (open) Main participant Baranov Central Institute of Aviation Motors Development CIAM Federal State Unitary Enterprise FSUE Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology - MIPT

23 EUTRAIN Views and expectations an expert dialogue between European experts and their international counterparts should be established comparative between the situation in the EU and those in other regions (such as analysis of 3rd country research capabilities, investment, future priorities and potential for cooperation with the EU in the prospect of mutual interest) high interest for Eastern Europe neighbourhood, Mediterranean countries, US and Japan while all surface transport modes should be addressed, aeronautics and air transport can be left out this activity will contribute to the establishment of a strategy for EU international transport research cooperation
