Session Overview
INV8: Modal Synergies for Future Mobility
Tuesday, 17/Apr/2018:
3:15pm - 4:45pm

Location: Schubert 5+6

Session Abstract

To fulfil the vision of a connected Europe, traditional modal silos need to be overcome and substituted by effective cross-modal collaboration and joined-up thinking. Projects such as SETRIS1 and Mobility4EU2 aim at contributing to this objective by setting the stage for a truly integrated passenger transport system. Building on the inputs from different European Technology Platforms (ETPs) representing all transport modes and relevant stakeholders, SETRIS proposes key avenues to achieve a seamless and sustainable experience based on a portfolio of action topics creating a potential framework for common/joint research activities underpinned by a synergetic approach to mobility. Decarbonisation, travel information, infrastructure evolution or automated vehicles are some of the tangible areas proposed to build a common research roadmap that enhances the synergies between all modes for maximum efficiency and accelerated benefits. This is fully in harmony with Mobility4EU which focuses on user-centred approaches and aims to identify synergies and collaboration opportunities between modes and sectors.
