Digitisation, Automatisation and Decarbonisation are major trends that will drastically change the way we live, work and use mobility and transport in the future. Under the heading of “A digital Era for Transport”, the Transport Research Arena 2018 (TRA 2018) to be held on 16-19th April in Vienna, Austria, will explore, discuss and demonstrate these major paradigm shifts specifically directed at important areas of our life, such as transport, mobility, logistics and industrial production.
Session hosted by JPI Urban Europe:
What is the transnational learning potential in MaaS?
Exploring the JPI Urban Europe approach to urban integrated mobility (working title)
JPI Urban Europe supports a transnational dialogue and development forum for Mobility as a service (MaaS) and integrated mobility and integrated mobility issues. The session will be in the form of a workshop to discuss the JPI Urban Europe White Paper on MaaS articulate priorities, state of the art, and opportunities for transnational exchange among urban regional actors across Europe as well as industry and R&I in the field of urban mobility. The purpose is to shape input for as well as mobilise actors for a strategic joint innovation project call and/or JPI Urban Europe joint call on Urban Accessibility and Connectivity.
MaaS and integrated mobility, accessibility and connectivity in urban areas requires innovation not only on the technical side but pertinently in learning and knowledge among a diverse set of mobility actors such as planners and managers, SMEs, and not least clients and customers.
Urban areas and functional regional systems traverse different types of administrative boundaries, technologies (digitalisation) and service providers even more so in terms of transnational and global ‘reach’. Not least are both public and commercial business models both challenged and stimulated to evolve along with a current general societal digitalisation transition and restructured urban innovation ecosystems in the surge of emerging new urban economies in Europe.
