The main aim of TRANS-FORM is to mobilise the procurement power of city authorities and major companies to accelerate progress towards sustainable zero carbon transport systems.

The three-year project, in which the Corporate Leaders Group plays a leading role, focuses on:

• The development of procurement of innovation strategies on realising green transport. The results will be used to bridge the gap with R&D, specifically the European Research Area (ERA) R&D.

• An analysis of the impact of transport on climate change.

• A sensible action plan to enable cities to make progress on smart, green integrated transport and infrastructure.


To achieve these goals the following objectives will be realised:

1. Bring together influential stakeholders from European cities and the innovation community to explore future zero carbon aspirations and emerging potential solutions.

2. Facilitate the development of leader-led innovation procurement projects in the procurement transport area.

3. Co-ordinate the development of joint demand statements of common need for innovative solutions in the future (innovation procurement 'Compacts').

4. Develop two innovation procurement 'Compacts' to the European innovation community.
