One of the objectives of the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS) is to support Transport Research and Innovation (R&I) horizon scanning. The Joint Research Centre (JRC) has developed a capacity for foresight and horizon scanning. Within the TRIMIS framework, horizon scanning is a structured and systematic collaborative exercise that contributes to the identification of new and emerging technologies and trends, helps to assess current and future research needs, and feeds into the broader JRC horizon scanning system with regard to transport.

TRIMIS aims to support the establishment of an anticipatory and adaptive culture in the field of European transport R&I, providing insights to users and contributing to a higher-level strategic framework. This report provides a first overview of the TRIMIS horizon scanning methodology and identifies areas for further development.
