This D1.1 document aims at identifying the level of integration required as well as metrics to measure future implementation success using an agreed set of challenges (physical, operational, economical, and political) as benchmark. In order to describe the challenges outline, desktop research has been carried out assessing a number of high level documents that identify research and innovation challenges. One of the key documents identified is the conclusion of the European Commission consultation on the H2020 Advisory Groups and subsequent response from the transport advisory group (TAG). The TAG report is used to evaluate the strategic research and innovation agendas (SRIAs) together with the European Technology Platforms (ETPs). This appraisal has resulted in a matrix providing a first attempt to map out the alignment of the ETPs activities to the four challenges described. The outcome shows that collaboration across ETPs has been well implemented, leading to a synergetic research and to innovation roadmaps towards addressing the EU transport research agenda. It can be concluded that the ETPs’ SRIAs are generally detailed and specific and very much bound to the ‘physical’ dimension of research and innovation development needs. Operational, economical and political challenges/targets appear somehow less populated in the assessment matrix. This allows for the identifications of gap areas where further collaboration is desirable between ETPs with the support of SETRIS. Finally, ACARE’s 4 hours mobility target is proposed as a suitable and fitting metric to measure implementation success.
