C.A.P.R.I. (Concerted Action on Transport Pricing Research Integration) logo

Overview of CAPRI

*  What is CAPRI seeking to achieve?

The objective of the Concerted Action on Transport Pricing Research Integration is to bring together the results of research studies that relate to the role of pricing in transport policy development.

In addition to examining research programmes at the national level, the Concerted Action seeks to facilitate the exchange of results from European level research, including:

A committee of representatives from the European Union and other countries has been formed to examine the policy implications of pricing research. By determining areas of consensus and disagreement, the committee will contribute to policy development and the identification of future research needs. The committee is open to any individual actively involved in research and policy development related to pricing.

*  Project Programme and Publications

The Concerted Action runs from January 1998 to December 1999. The project milestones and publication dates are determined by the 6-monthly meetings of the CAPRI committee:
