This 30-month project results included novel scenarios for 2030 and 2050 on the competitiveness of the European transport industry. By integrating (through General Morphological Analysis) the foresight intelligence into a comparative synopsis, our consortion was able to compare and assess various visions and especially different policies to reach these goals, with its results being discussed with experts from the transport industry, research, policy, and the foresight field to come up with weighted explanations and long duration core concepts for a sustainable strength of the European transport industry.
