II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The aim of this research programme is to prepare the national road authorities on future challenges of connectivity, digitalization and automation to get to an autonomously well-managed traffic flow. If NRAs do not act proactively, the vehicle manufacturers will determine the automation of traffic flow alone, the NRAs will fall behind and huge investment will be needed to safeguard NRAs’ objectives. NRAs goals and roles in the cooperative, connected and automated mobility of the future must be clear. Exchange of data, digital twins and the digital road operator are now hot topics in the European Commission. NRAs need to determine and act before other parties decide in our place where we need to invest.

The call has the following sub-themes:

(a) digital infrastructure,

(b) connectivity,

(c) traffic management.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The aim of this research programme is to accelerate the transition of the road infrastructure sector in Europe, from linear economy, into resource efficient circular economy. Circular economy will imply profound changes in matters such as organisational and business models, basis for decisions and manufacturing and construction processes. If national road authorities combine efforts and harmonise standards in demand, the construction sector will be enabled to take the necessary steps. The national road authorities need to develop new management models across everyday business activities, public procurement that will foster circular solutions and new products based on renewable or recyclable materials.

The research programme has the following sub-themes:

(a) measuring and managing performance;

(b) public procurement to foster circular innovation;

(c) material research for roadside infrastructure.
