EU policy also deals with issues as wide-ranging as climate change, passenger rights, clean fuels, and cutting customs-related red tape at ports. THE EU’s transport strategy comprises 40 initiatives designed to generate growth, jobs, reduce dependence on imported oil, and cut the sector’s carbon emissions by 60% by 2050. Key agencies:
- European Aviation Safety Agency
- European Railway Agency
- European Maritime Safety Agency
- GALILEO – European Global Navigation Satellite System Agency (GNSS)
75 research and innovation projects under the Transport Challenge of Horizon 2020 will receive €484 million EU funding to turn European air, rail, road and waterborne transport into a greener, safer, more competitive and integrated system.
