Clean transport – URGENT ACTION!
We do not talk about climate change in the future tense any longer. Urgent actions are needed in the transport sector, not only to mitigate but to adapt to the challenges that we are facing.
Digitalisation is shaping transport and mobility in a way never seen before. The sharing economy is playing a growing role also in the transport sector, and the popular demand is to put users at the core of the transport systems.
Rethinking the use of existing physical infrastructure assets together with the digital and energy layers opens new opportunities that should be utilised. We are expected to deliver improvements to foster efficiency, multimodality, enhanced connectivity and automation, including further development of charging infrastructure for the alternative fueled vehicles.
The research field should play a significant role in supporting and shaping policymaking at national, European and global levels. We need to rethink how, with the help of RDI, we can create a European label that is more competitive and sustainable.
