There are two ways to search the database: Simple Search is the quickest way to find resources if you have a few non-generic keywords in mind (e.g., "PRTSR process "); full power of the database is accessible through the Advanced Search option where you can combine all possible search criteria to precisely specify the scope of your interest, even if it is about the most generic terms like "transport sector ". We encourage you to try both approaches!
