The European Green Deal and its target to achieve a 90% reduction in transport-related greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 together with the new EU Urban Mobility Framework put urban mobility and logistics in the spotlight of EU mobility policies. Research and innovation is paramount to respond to the challenges and to further improve mobility and transport systems in cities, while fully tackling the negative impacts of transport. This report provides a review of recent trends, challenges and achievements of European research and innovation initiatives in urban mobility and logistics. The report identifies relevant projects that focus on urban mobility, using the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS) database. It identifies the main trends in European research and it discusses main areas of development and key achievements. It also presents recommendations for future research priorities and initiatives.
