SUPPORTED BY THE 6TH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME
HarmonHy Pre-normative Research Traffic Light Survey (WP2)
This Questionnaire is part of the activities planned for the Work Package 2 (WP2) “State-of-the-Art of Pre-normative Research”, in which pre-normative research activities are surveyed in most significant programmes/projects. The meaning of pre-normative research used in the HarmonHy Project is: the preliminary phase of experimental research aimed at better characterising the novel technologies and evaluating the related safety aspects by applying well established procedures and methodologies(whose development is part of the pre-normative activities). This Survey will be instrumental in recommending to the EC topics/activities in the next 7 Framework Programme on RCS pre-normative research.
This Questionnaire is mainly aimed at collecting information and data to monitor the past and ongoing research activities, mainly in publicly-funded programmes/projects (in USA, Japan, European Union and other relevant countries), in support of the development of regulations, codes and standards (RCS). The data collection is most based on a semi-qualitative Traffic Light Analysis in which the research activities can be classified according to the following Table.
The next step of the Survey will be the collection of more quantitative information on some specific projects more relevant for RCS pre-normative research, screened from the present survey. The data collection addresses two specific technologies (Hydrogen and Fuel Cells) and two major applications (Transport and Stationary) and will take between 10-15 minutes per project.
The Questionnaire is divided in four parts:
The results of the survey will be made available on the HarmonHy website after a preliminary analysis and aggregation.
