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

- 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 session was split into parallel focus groups, addressing:
- user needs
- mobility performance
The principal question was: “What additional measures are needed to meet the milestones of the future transport system?“ Participants in each group volunteered ideas specifically geared to the context of their group (e.g. “infrastructure”). These free-ranging ideas were then collaboratively grouped into themes, adding new measures as needed. Performance indicators for each theme were proposed next, before one key performance indicator per theme was finally chosen through discussion.
Throughout all discussions, the participants highlighted that collaboration between the different mobility stakeholders is required. In particular, users need to be involved much more in this process. Common standards and targets are crucial for collaboration in the mobility and transport sector. Roadmaps for the implementation of physical infrastructure are required to improve the existing transport network. Digital infrastructure such as sharing open data is required to access mobility data to improve transport services towards single ticketing and single point-of-contact aspects.
30 partners’ members and external experts from different mobility fields were involved in the activities of the workshop, representing the various stakeholders’ groups.
