The Report focuses on the requirements for data sharing within the transport research community. In particular, it examines the potential for the establishment of a Transport Research Cloud (TRC) as a subset of the European Union’s European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative.

Six domain experts collected data based on their personal experiences, contacts, prior research and a survey sent out to other researchers in the transport domain to enable a preliminary analysis concerning the needs, barriers and potential benefits of transport research data sharing. From this work ten recommendations have been developed that the Experts believe must be addressed if a sustainable Transport Research Cloud is to be realized.
