Europe on the Move

6 April 2019

Commission completes its agenda for safe, clean and connected mobility.

The Juncker Commission is undertaking the third and final set of actions to modernise Europe's transport system.

In his State of the Union address of September 2017, President Juncker set out a goal for the EU and its industries to become a world leader in innovation, digitisation and decarbonisation.

Building on the previous 'Europe on the Move' of May and November 2017, the Juncker Commission is putting forward a third and final set of measures to make this a reality in the mobility sector. The objective is to allow all Europeans to benefit from safer traffic, less polluting vehicles and more advanced technological solutions, while supporting the competitiveness of the EU industry. To this end, the initiatives include:

  • an integrated policy for the future of road safety with measures for vehicles and infrastructure safety
  • the first ever CO2 standards for heavy-duty vehicles
  • a strategic Action Plan for the development and manufacturing of batteries in Europe and a forward-looking strategy on connected and automated mobility.

With this third 'Europe on the Move', the Commission is completing its ambitious agenda for the modernisation of mobility.
