European Mobility for the Future – Joint event with CAMERA
9th workshop, 15 June 2018, Brussels
The joint MOBILITY4EU+CAMERA workshop was held in Brussels on 15th of June 2018 at the Blue Point venues, Bvd. Auguste Reyers. The aim of the M4EU workshop was to acquire feedback from experts from different mobility sectors on the development of a strategic roadmap for the European transport system and to discuss the bottlenecks and research needs for this roadmap. The participants actively contributed to the development of the Action Plan and the identification of aspects that are important to consider when designing the future European transport system.
Welcome and introduction
Joint presentation of the projects:

MOBILITY4EU session moderated by Marcia Urban (Bauhaus Luftfahrt)
Co-moderated by: Thierry Coosemans (VUB-MOBI), Rebecca Hueting (Deep Blue) and Beate Müller (VDI/VDE)
- World cafè sessions on “Action Plan for transport in 2030”;
- Results of discussions and take-aways for Action Plan update;
Co-moderated by: Ulrike Kluge (Bauhaus Luftfahrt), Pete Hullah (Eurocontrol), Annika Paul (Bauhaus Luftfahrt)
- Round table sessions “Progress towards EU mobility goals”;
- Session wrap-up and next steps;
- Wrap-up and final remarks highlighting the synergies between the projects
- the engagement of all stakeholders in the discussion of existing mobility roadmaps
- the development and consultation of the Mobiliy4EU Action Plan
- the development of key performance indicators (KPIs) for the performance measurement of the European mobility system in the CAMERA project.
The first interactive session aimed at the validation of trends connecting to a certain scenario. Participants worked in small groups at the scenario stations to further elaborate on the impacts of the trends on the future mobility system in the context of the particular scenario. Main questions were:
- Is this scenario credible and probable? Are there elements that are not probable until 2030 (it is only 15 years from now!)? Are their further trends missing?
- Which trends of this scenario have the greatest impact on mobility demand?
The second interactive session aimed at the matching of technological and organisational solutions to the scenarios and their trends. Participants, still grouped to the scenarios, could select the most effective solutions from their point of view and pin them to the matching trend category (policy, environment, society, technology or economy). Main questions were:
- What are the most important technological, organisational or policy-related solutions that can respond to the trends in this scenario?
- What are the barriers of the deployment of a particular solution concerning the trends in the scenarios?
The task will now be to validate the work done on scenario trends and solutions so far and to extent and revise it where necessary. Then, in a very structured methodological approach, the multi-actor-multi-criteria analysis (MAMCA), these scenarios will be ranked. The outcome of this process will directly feed into the final comprehensive vision and the action plan that details how to implement this vision.
30 partners’ members and external experts from different mobility fields were involved in the activities of the workshop, representing the various stakeholders’ groups.
