Becoming a leader in the field of innovation, digitization and decarbonbisation is the goal the President Junker set out for the EU in 2017. Thus, on 17 May 2018, following the previous “Europe on the Move” of May and November 2017, the Juncker Commission has established a third and final set of measures to reach the aforementioned goal.

The major aim in this context is to allow all European citizens to benefit from safer traffic, less polluting vehicles and more advanced technological solutions. Thus, the third set of measures consists of:

  • 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;
  • a forward-looking strategy on connected and automated mobility.

With this third “Europe on the Move”, the European Commission is accomplishing its ambitious agenda for the mobility modernization.
