Smart & Urban Mobility

The EuroTech Universities offer strong expertise across the entire spectrum of technologies vital in addressing today’s urban mobility challenges, including Automotive technologies, Green Vehicles, Intelligent Transport Systems, Logistics and Planning Systems, ICT for Automotive and Urban Planning.

The ever-increasing demand for mobility and its implications represent a major global societal challenge. The EuroTech Universities are developing a complementary set of technological solutions to address these mobility challenges. Solutions require comprehensive integrated approaches taking into account user needs, urban space requirements, implications of technological innovations as well as the sound design and implementation of policies.

Given the extensive mobility ecosystems in which they operate, the EuroTech Universities form a unique European network of networks with leading automotive players and high-tech industries, excellent technology and service providers as well as public authorities experienced in testing and deploying novel mobility solutions.

Activities

Research

EuroTech Universities Working Groups are active in a number of mobility research fields, such as Traffic Safety, Urban Logistics, Intelligent Transport Systems, Automated Road Transport, Green Vehicles and Urban Mobility. A series of workshops primarily facilitated by the Brussels Office explored the scope for cooperation, complementary strengths and synergies of joining forces.

Workshops:

  • Smart Mobility in October 2013
  • Smart Mobility in June 2015
  • Smart & Urban Mobility in April 2016
  • Big Data in Transport/ Intelligent Transport Systems in May 2016
