Research Challenges (1)• Technical research towards greener, more reliable and safer urban mobility, e.g.: – ICT-solutions for information, planning & monitoring (data mining) – Engineering lighter and smarter vehicles and large scale deployment of new propulsion techniques (E-mobility) – Smart infrastructure concepts / interchange development
  7. 7. Research Challenges (2)• Behavioral research towards improved insight in how to influence behaviour: – Freedom of choice versus restriction measures (e.g. implementing congestion charging in London and Stockholm) – What is desired behaviour? Avoiding peak hours? Travelling by public transport? Working from home? • Political question • Researchers should know how behaviour is affected by political choices
  8. 8. Research Challenges (3)• Economic research towards innovative business models (public/private) – What are costs and benefits of urban transport measures? – Who is willing to invest in urban mobility and who benefits? – How can we boost the economy by investing in greener, safer and more reliable urban mobility?

Topics for a KIC urban mobility• Theme-wise, e.g. – Urban Logistics – Multi modal transportation – Electrification – Inter-urban transportation (network cities) – ….• Or City-wise, e.g. – Network cities (Randstad, Ruhr area, Northern Italy) – Big hubs (Paris, Berlin, Rome, Madrid, Bucharest) – “Rural” medium-sized cities (Toulouse, Gent, Norwich, Malmo) – “Freight” / port cities (Rotterdam, Hamburg, Naples, Athens) – Business districts (London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam)
