First Scientific Opinion of the SAM High Level Group Delivered

Last month, Henrik C. Wegener, the Chair of the European Commission High Level Group of Scientific Advisors, the Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM), submitted the SAM´s first Scientific Opinion to Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation. In its Opinion, SAM analyses how to close the growing gap between the measurement of CO2 emissions from cars and vans in the laboratory (“type approval”) and what they really emit on the road. The Scientific Opinion is intended to provide evidence-based guidance to a Commission policy proposal for post-2020 emission performance standards for light-duty vehicles (cars and vans), expected in 2017.
