With its Transport Program, the DLR is the second largest institutionally funded transport research body in Europe: 26 DLR institutes follow a systematic, programmatic approach. It uses networks and synergies – with national and international facilities and economic and political bodies – to develop concrete solutions for a sustainable transport system.
