ETTAR - Environmental Technologies Training and Awareness-Raising in the Transport Sector

9 September 2008

The ETTAR project ended with its final conference in Brussels to discuss the conclusions reached by the working groups. A total of three workshops had been held in the year leading up to the conference.

Background notes were prepared in advance of the workshops and policy briefs were produced in order to disseminate findings and recommendations. A final report summarised these findings. In addition, a specification was written for an e-learning tutorial relevant to those working in this sector.
