Energy and Transport

Key results and recommendations

The Energy and Transport programme’s overall objective was to contribute to making the Nordic region a leading region in Europe for developing, demonstrating and using new, sustainable energy technologies for transportation. The main activity of the programme has been to fund Nordic cross-border projects covering sustainable transportation aspects. Calls for projects were released in 2010 (Electric Transportation) and in 2011 (Sustainable Freight Transportation). The programme’s results point to a successful outcome with novel project ideas, new Nordic partnerships and combined research efforts. The Nordic countries are, though having a lot in common, different in many aspects. It is when combining these differences to achieve mutually beneficial results that the Nordic region can really become a leading region of new, innovative technology developments in sustainable transportation
