The SETRIS project supports a holistic update of the research and innovation strategies, started by CSA funded EU projects supporting SRIA roadmapping activity, derived by surface transport roadmapping clusters (e.g. FOSTER RAIL and FOSTER ROAD). The scope of this Deliverable is (passenger) long distance transport. D1.5 is the twin SETRIS WP1 Deliverable with D1.4 which has scope to cover both private and public urban transport. The D1.5 agenda for long distance transport is much more suited to public (mass) transport, though private long distance would be mostly road based and so would very much depend on the road based governance. On the other hand, there is a target to shift the road transport to other modes, e.g. the rail sector, for both passengers and freight transport, so it is expected to have a greater quantity of movements and a better balanced scenario concerning the whole long-distance modes. This Deliverable, D1.5, aims to explore advancements/changes in the past 5 years aimed at developing the different SRIAs related to long distance passenger transport. The focus is on collecting EU funded projects that contribute to the SRIA development. We conclude that for surface transport ETPs (ERRAC, ERTRAC, and WATERBORNE) very similar roadmapping activity is being carried out and there is a single CSA to support this roadmapping activity. By contrast the non-surface transport sector (ACARE) tends to be funded by CSA projects which specifically address thematic issues such as cost, time, safety, emissions, and alternative fuels. The latest development of the surface transport ETPs roadmapping activity is a move towards joint ETPs’ collaboration to address mutual problems which can only be addressed by cooperation, for example, the roadmap on Urban Mobility. There is, however, no evidence for a similar level of impact yet in long distance transport, though the non-surface transport sector has already specifically addressed the door-to-door theme that could encourage other ETPs to contribute to the roadmap for long distance transport. Formalized joint roadmapping activities cross ETP could be beneficial to achieve this through, for example inviting surface transport ETPs to contribute to the ACARE door-to door service (time efficiency) cluster consultation process, and explicitly targeting improvement of the road and potentially –water –rail interface which has been lacking previously.
