The Forum wants to see the transport sector organised in such a way that we are able to adopt a common, and hence stronger, position in international cooperation. This is particularly important at the EU level.
By working closely together, we can be more effective in influencing the international institutions that fund research and innovation. This will benefit Swedish research and Swedish industry, as well as contributing to sustainable development.
The Forum is seeking to secure greater Swedish participation in different EU initiatives, to allow us to communicate more effectively the common Swedish strategy which the Forum has developed. Several of our roadmaps highlight activities that will require adjustments to EU research programmes if funding from the EU is to be made available for them. The Forum also offers support aimed at enabling stakeholders to devote more time to establishing consortia, preparing applications and attending meetings.
