THE ISSUE programme will create a vibrant partnership of regional research clusters to bring together and coordinate already-existing and projected R&D programmes relevant to Traffic, Health and Environment both within the clusters and more widely in the broader European research community.
The partners involved are The University of Nottingham, Astrium Services (Leicester), the Molise region in Italy, the Midi-Pyrenees and Aquitaine regions in France and the Mazovia region in Poland.
Cllr Rory Palmer, deputy city mayor and cabinet lead on transport and climate change at Leicester, sees this project as an excellent example of the City Council’s commitment to working closely with Leicester’s two universities, and other partners, for the benefit of all citizens.
THE ISSUE project is a part of the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), which promotes knowledge exchange and cooperation between European regions so as to stimulate economic growth and job creation.
