Horizon 2020: 2018-2020 Mobility for Growth (H2020-MG-2018-2019-2020)
*** Please refer to the Participant Portal for up to date and correct information. ***
Transport is changing at an accelerating pace as a result of several factors in many diverse but interconnected fields: cutting edge technological innovations such as for example the increasing penetration of digital and space-based technologies in automated, connected and cooperative vehicles, transport infrastructure, logistics operations, aeronautics and safety applications; major socio-economic trends such as ageing population, migration and urbanisation; global targets such as those set by the COP 21 Paris Agreement on the fight against climate change and by the UN in support of Sustainable Development Goals; increased international competition for the European transport industry across all modes; new operations and business models based on increased connectivity between infrastructure, transport means, travellers and goods which can contribute to seamless door-to-door mobility.
In order to address these new challenges, targeted efforts are needed to develop and validate new solutions that can be rapidly deployed. They will address in a systemic way transport means, infrastructure and operation models and integrate them into a user friendly European transport system of smart connected mobility for passengers and freight and with significantly reduced impact on climate and environment. A user-centred approach taking into account the evolving needs of transport users is necessary in order to assess the impact of transport solutions on society and economy, while it will also contribute to the competitiveness of European transport industry. Simultaneously a perspective is needed that acknowledges the broader impact of the transport system, not only on its users, but also on non-users in cities and regions.
