EC: Assessment status report on Transport, Research and Innovation
The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, in charge of the development of the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS), has published a new report.
Carried out under the supervision of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) and Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD), the study provides the second overview of the TRIMIS database. It assesses the status of transport R&I in seven thematic areas as defined by the European Commission’s Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA):
— Cooperative, connected and automated transport;
— Transport electrification;
— Vehicle design and manufacturing;
— Low-emission alternative energy for transport;
— Network and traffic management systems;
— Smart mobility and services; and
Since the last overview, the database includes over 9% more projects, covers information on transport technologies and organisations, while steps are made to include data on patents and publications. These developments bolster TRIMIS’ capabilities to monitor the progress of STRIA.
