The European Strategic Research Agenda (ESRA) informs and inspires academia, operational in public or private entities, to gain a complete overview of research areas which are making the difference between today's research work and future state of the art practices.

The ESRA brings together the global need on research capacity, along the value chain. Following the publication of the Vision Document, the ESRA summarises the knowledge needed, reflected by the landmark opportunities arising from the introduction of innovative mobility.

It facilitates developers of Research Programmes, within the EU and the individual member states. The foundation of the SRA is built upon 6 technological and non-technological strategic objectives.

  1. Optimising industrial manufacturing and recycling processes to improved material efficiency
  2. Developing new materials and sustainable technologies for closed loop material management
  3. Improving cross-border chain management and transfer of data on vehicles, batteries and waste
  4. Influencing market interests and end-user behaviour
  5. Stimulating level playing field and regulatory harmonisation
  6. Analysing economic development and cost calculation to gain full understanding on cost & benefit of material efficient processes
