The morning session comprised presentations from the project Consortuim about the projects, as well as from Cristina Marolda of the European Commission who outlined their Strategic Transport Research & Innovation Agenda (STRIA). Thierry Goger, FEHRL Secretary General, gave a welcome and overview of the projects and all Work Package (WP) leaders then provided details on their transport concepts developed for the seven areas of Construction, Inspection, Maintenance, Recycling & Reuse, Energy & Carbon, Safety & Security and User Information. After lunch and a briefing for the afternoon sessions by Project Officer, Migle Paliukaite, delegates split up and attended twice two parallel sessions where they could give their input to the work carried out within these seven technical areas.
