Department for Transport's (DfT) Road Vehicle and Safety Standards' (RVSS) and Roads Performance Strategy's (RPS) Unit-Level Evidence Research Strategy and the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)
Finella McKenzie was retained to undertake a review of the Unit level Evidence & Research Strategy produced by the Department for Transportís RVSS and RPS Directorates in tandem with a review of European Commission documents on the design of FP7 and related European initiatives. The aim was to identify strategic themes and assess the extent to which they address RVSS/RPS priorities as well as highlighting other top level priority research areas which could provide opportunities for RVSS/RPS - in addition to those relating to socio-economics and mobility, hydrogen and biofuels and GALILEO applications. Advice was also provided on the mechanism for gaining access to the results of research useful for policy making and on participation options. The aim was to help the Unit achieve maximum benefit from the research funding opportunities offered by FP7 and to inform the UK's negotiating position on the content of the annual workprogrammes for the FP7 Thematic priorities for Transport, Information and Communication Technologies and Energy.
