Background & policy context: 

The Programme of the Centre for Transport Research (CDV) is a representation of evolved transport policy in response to the prevailing condition of modern transport requirements. The Institute Programme reflects a 50-year development of transport expertise formally articulated originally upon the inception of the separate Czech Republic (from the former Czechoslovakia) in 1993; and again during 1997 in the Czech Ministry of Transport Committee approval of “The Conceptual Purposes of CDV,” which formally set institute activities, developmental direction, and the necessary means for their accomplishment. In January 2002, the Ministry of Transport Committee reaffirmed Institute purposes within the approval of the document “Programme for CDV Development,” which specifically outlines the operational framework until the year 2010.

After reorganization as an independent non-profit research institute on the 1st of January 2007, CDV continues to be the primary provider of transport expertise and international cooperation for the Ministry. Its mission to provide management of existing and unforeseen problems in transport; to provide expertise and support on the breadth of transport issues to Czech Ministries and the transport community in general, remains unchanged.

Strategic Objectives: 

CDV has adopted the research plan entitled “Sustained Mobility-Chance for the Future.” The goal of the research plan is to create a theoretical and known knowledge base for all applied transport research with the intention to augment that transport policy, and to make it realisable.

A major objective of the research plan is to support sustainable mobility and the integration of Czech transport research into the European research arena. This philosophic approach to the transport solution was approved within the context of international obligations taken by the Czech Republic in Governmental Resolution No. 1242: “Strategy for Sustainable Development”.

Both the CDV Research Programme, and the Czech Ministry of Transport Programme are relevant, and have been formulated to harmonise with the aims and principles of the European Union White Paper “European Transport Policy for 2010: time to decide” and the antecedent “Mid-term Review of Transport White Paper: Keep Europe Moving”.

The agenda is essentially orientated to:

  • Scientific research and technological development activities to optimise solutions for the needs of an integrated transport system composed of all transport modes;

  • Enhancement of existing transport safety, environmental impact, and traffic management initiatives;

  • International research co-operation, and the building of scientific transport networks;

  • Monitoring, evaluating, and comparison of transport research data, implementation of their results, and a dissemination of strategies for their optimisation among the transport public.
