The Sustainable Pavements & Railways Initial Training Network is a training-through-research programme that is empowering Europe by forming a new generation of multi-disciplinary professionals capable of conceiving, planning and executing sustainable road and railway infrastructures. The SUP&R ITN, started at the beginning of October 2013, it’s a 4 million € effort entirely funded by the European Commission through its Marie Curie Actions 2012 of the FP7 programme 2006 – 2013. The University of Nottingham is leading this effort which is the first of its kind and involves 29 partners between universities, research centres and companies/industries, from five EU countries (UK, Italy, France, Ireland and Spain) and the USA.
