CEDR Call 2019 — Renewable Energy in Road Infrastructure, Safe Smart Highways and Soils
This call for proposals entitled CEDR Transnational Road Research Programme Call 2019 is launched by Danish Road Directorate on behalf of the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR).
The research and development services of this call are exempted from the scope of the Danish Public Procurement Act, cf. Section 22 of the Act (Art. 14 of Directive 2014/24).
The purpose of this prior information notice is to secure transparency to call 2019 in the EU.

Renewable Energy in Road Infrastructure
The aim of this programme is to identify, consider and gain a greater understanding of existing renewable energy generation with regard to application on or nearby assets of national road authorities (NRA). In this way, NRAs can make more informed choices and contribute to the energy transition in a most cost-effective way. This research programme will examine the following 3 sub-themes:
(i) an overview of renewable energy applications in different NRA topologies and assets;
(ii) an analysis of business case options and typical applications; and
(iii) Governance, organisational and legal issues regarding renewable energy at NRA assets and land.
Safe Smart Highways
The aim of this programme is to identify, consider and gain a greater understanding of existing procedures with stopped vehicles and capacity of highways with in National Road Authorities (NRA). In this way, NRAs can make more informed choices. This research programme will examine ways of preventing collisions with stopped vehicle in a live traffic lane and increasing the capacity of highway without compromising, or even improving, road safety.
The aim of this programme is to develop prescriptive methodologies for assessing and quantifying the impacts of national road projects on soils, and outline practical mitigation measures to offset and minimise these impacts.
