Modelling Emerging Transport Solutions for Urban Mobility

Disruptive technologies and emerging mobility solutions such as MaaS (Mobility as a Service), CAVs (Connected Automated Vehicles), new shared mobility services and demand responsive transport, are bringing radical changes to urban mobility.

The goal of MOMENTUM is to develop a set of new data analysis methods, transport models and planning support tools to capture the impact of these new transport options on the urban mobility ecosystem, in order to support cities in the task of designing the right policy mix to exploit the full potential of these emerging mobility solutions.

The MOMENTUM project, which started in May 2019 and will run for three years, is a project under the CIVITAS Initiative, an EU-funded
programme working to make sustainable and smart mobility a reality for all.

ECOMM 2021

More than ever, the goal of achieving sustainable transport modes putting users first and providing them with more affordable, accessible, healthier, and cleaner alternatives to their current mobility habits and patterns. Automated and connected multimodal mobility must play an increasing role, together with smart traffic management systems offered by digitalization. On the other hand, it is crucial to think and plan the cities, in order to ensure the essential services and proximity functions, equipment, and identity, while simultaneously creating spaces that are adjustable and flexible to support fast changes. How to ensure affordability, accessibility and safety for all? Which strategies must be employed to reduce the need to travel? How to implement mobility hubs to induce co-mobility and shared mobility, integrating several modes of transport as well as creating urban spaces and greener environments? How to afford Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems? Considering the necessary deep changes in economy, society, policy, environment and technology, our future depends on the lessons we will learn from the moment we are living today and ECOMM 2021 wants to actively encourage the discussion and exchange on the Beginning of a New Era at European level. The ECOMM 2021 conference will take place in Cascais (Portugal) from 24-26 November 2021.

9th Informed Cities Forum

Mark your calendars: 9th Informed Cities Forum to take place 26-28 October 2021! To celebrate the return of our popular interactive “un-”conference, not one, but two topics will be explored through the 9th Informed Cities Forum. Organised under the title: “Re-purpose. Re-charge. Re-think. Heritage and e-mobility at the crossroads“, the Forum will cast light on cultural heritage and electric mobility. Through a series of interactive sessions, the conference will explore how these topics align, and how problem solving, or specific processes might be addressed differently. Themes explored through the joint sessions include: “How do experts from the different fields respond to the same administrative hurdles, how do they interact with interest groups and the public? How do we approach new technology? Do we see similar patterns, or different ones?” In addition, participants will be able to explore the individual topics of cultural heritage and electric mobility in more depth through deep dive sessions. Unlike other online conferences, Informed Cities Forum is an interactive, collaborative event, which makes use of innovative formats, and is willing to explore unconventional topics. Active participation by the audience is not just encouraged, but is required, and will be rewarded with lively and energetic discussions

Case Studies

The tools developed will be tested in a set of case studies with heterogeneous characteristics in terms of size, morphology, environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors, mobility issues and policy goals.
