It is due to the importance of transport or economies, that EU transport policy have historically focused on liberalisation and harmonisation to form a single trans-European transport network. More recently it has incorporated sustainability considerations into transport policies. Mobility is one of the six priority areas of the EU’s Sustainable Development Strategy.The challenges of environment protection are complex and diffuse, and so cannot be solved at the level of the individual country or pollutant. The solutions are to be found within systematic multi-disciplinary research and within the application of the concept of sustainable development. Key to tackling global sustainability challenges is collective, societal action. The REACT Support Action aims to support multi-stakeholder international collaboration in climate-friendly transport research, enhance EC Member States’ research efforts and cooperate with Associated States and the broader international community.
