The European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) established the exploratory research project MITICA (Monitoring Transport Infrastructures with Connected and Automated vehicles) to investigate the opportunity to use novel methods for infrastructure motoring, aiming at the efficient maintenance of
The Science for Policy Brief presents main trends in public transport research and innovation in Europe. It is based on the recent JRC Science for Policy Report Public transport research and innovation in Europe. The assessment is based on the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and
Smart mobility systems and services and transport electrification have the potential to contribute to transport decarbonisation. Policy and innovation efforts have to focus on integrated transport strategies as part of wider smart and sustainable city strategies. They should take into consideration
Inspired by technological developments on connected mobility, this project aims to contribute to the EU priority “A Europe fit for the digital age” by exploring synergies between connected vehicles and smart infrastructure components for the fast and mobile assessment of the existing bridge stock.
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of research and innovation (R&I) in vehicle design and manufacturing in selected European Union (EU) funded projects from 2007 onwards. It identifies relevant researched technologies by transport mode and their phase of development. The results show that
Electrification has a major role to play in decarbonising transport and in reducing its fossil fuel dependency. For transport electrification to be cost-efficient and ready for future needs, adequate research and innovation (R&I) in this field is necessary. This report provides a comprehensive
The objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive and exhaustive overview on transport contribution to economic growth, alongside the externalities of environmental and social impact towards sustainable transport to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 within the EU.
