The ambitious goals of climate protection and resource efficiency, plus the tremendous changes in society and economy require restless innovation and progress in the transportation systems. Transport sectors are advancing their research agendas to meet these challenges. Nevertheless, the efforts remain fragmented within the modal silos. In order to reach the European goals and to meet the transport and mobility needs of all European citizens, a truly integrated and seamless transport system for people and freight must be developed and implemented, and the full potential of transformative technologies has to be exploited.
This can only be achieved if user-centeredness, cross-modality and technology transfer become a focus of efforts of all stakeholders in transport. The project delivered a vision for the European transport system in 2030 and an action plan to implement that vision.

Recommendations for tangible measures in research, innovation and implementation targeted towards various stakeholder groups were derived and they are collected in this interactive e-guide.

Project Methodologies

Mobility4EU set a participatory framework involving all relevant actors from inside and outside the transport sector, covering all transport modes. The methodologies used were:

The powerful visualisation technique of story mapping facilitates the discussions during workshops and the dissemination process through graphic visualisations. In this way project partners, associated partners and external stakeholders could easily follow the advancement toward the Action Plan and the general audience could access the project results intuitively. The story map builds from the context map showing the trends and their impacts on mobility and the opportunity map cataloguing solutions, to the vision and finally the action plan.

The Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis (MAMCA), developed at the MOBI Research Centre at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), is a scientifically sound approach to consult a broad stakeholder community. In MOBILITY4EU project the main societal actors in Europe were consulted on the identification, evaluation and prioritisation of future user needs, new transport concepts, implications and potential societal resistance and adoption. A number of workshops provided direct input in a democratic way for the whole process, including the construction of the scenarios, validation of objectives, weighting of stakeholder criteria as well as the final consensus building and selection of the best-ranking scenario.

The Action Plan for Transport in Europe in 2030 details measures that address technical topics especially referring to societal aspects and issues for multistakeholder interaction , as e.g. policy, user acceptance, standardisation, collaboration and the integration of the user perspective into the R&D and innovation process. Multiple existing strategies and published roadmaps address these issues in its entirety or for individual modes or freight only. These initiatives are driven by the research community, the industry or policy, but only rarely from a user perspective. The Action Plan produced by Mobility4EU intends to fill this gap and provide recommendations for R&D, deployment, policy and regulatory framework and other implementation-related issues from a user-centered and cross-modal perspective.

A Pan-European infrastructure network (mainly for automated trains and e-trucks) should be started. In order to do so, harmonized standards and interoperable systems need to be developed, so that automated vehicles can cross borders seamlessly. Also, the implementation of an efficient standardized 5G mobile communications network will enable real time communication between vehicles and infrastructure. To achieve this, more research on the legal framework in order to realize the importance of this network is needed as well as the support of interconnectivity and efficiency of logistics by the use of standardized modular containers equipped with standardized protocols and interfaces in a physical internet. By 2025 a demonstration platform in a suitable pilot scenario needs to be established.

In order to achieve the 1.5-2 degree climate protection targets within the EU, all transport modes must cooperate during the development and implementation of technologies such as alternative fuels or the automation and/or electrification of vehicles/aircraft. Even though there are different timelines for the technology implementation, a collaboration between experts from different modes of transport can improve the knowledge transfer and support the share of lessons learned and best-practice approaches. Furthermore, the development of required infrastructure can be aligned among the different modes of transport. It is recommended to establish an expert group with participants from all modes of transport on European level until 2020 to initiate the collaboration.

Overall performance and efficiency of the European transport system can be improved by monitoring the efficiency of different transport solutions with respect to time, costs, carbon footprint, and other aspects. Thus, optimization potential can be identified. A special focus has to be put on multimodal transport solutions that provide open interfaces into user data and statistics for all mobility service providers. Thus, demand-oriented, low-environmental impact and low-energy consumption multimodal transport offers can be supported for transport of passengers and freight. Door-to-door transport services can be improved by the integration of automated vehicles in multi-modal seamless transport chains as well as through the creation of a fully automated multi-modal logistics center, including automated (re)packaging.
