European prosperity now and in the future depends on a strong and competitive transport sector. The long distance transport of goods and services is a significant direct and indirect contributor to European wealth, and its contribution and integration is steadily growing At the same time the transport system of Europe faces significant challenges in order to become sustainable in the long term, and to decouple its significant positive effects from its impact on the environment.
With the aim to address these challenges the project CORE (CO2 REduction for long distance transport) has started. CORE is a European founded collaborative large-scale integrated project, within FP7-SUSTAINABLE SURFACE TRANSPORT (SST)-2011-RTD-1.
The consortium consists of 16 partners from truck manufactories, automotive industries and universities; Volvo, CRF, Chalmers, Daimler,Federal-Mogul, Univ. Hannover, Honeywell, IAV, Johnsson Matthey, JRC, Metatron, POLIMI, POLITO, Rhodia, Ricardo and Umicore.
The project has a duration of 4 year, with start January 2012 and end December 2015. The total budget is about 17 MEuro, with approximately 50% founded by European Commission. T
