The major challenge in the Transport sector is the transformation towards zero emission in all possible modes of transport. Ultimately, this means vehicles, vessels and airplanes, which are either electric, hydrogen fuelled and/or the use of a biobased or renewable fuel. Other challenges are: autonomous driving and new mobility concepts.
Uniresearch consultants have profound knowledge of the opportunities and challenges in the transport and mobility domain and are keen to support you to acquire funding for research and innovation actions in e.g. the following European programs: Green Vehicle, Mobility for Growth, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen, Maritime and Infrastructures. Our services in project set-up and – management cover each development stage; from early stage research projects to demonstration projects.
Uniresearch was hired by the coordinator MAN to write and compile the grant application. After approval of the project, Uniresearch together with MAN has become responsible for the project coordination and the dissemination/exploitation activities.
The AEROFLEX project will develop and demonstrate new technologies, concepts and architectures for complete vehicles that are energy efficient, safe, comfortable, configurable and cost-effective. Aerodynamics, powertrains and safety systems will be optimised. Next to this, flexible and adaptable loading units with advanced interconnectedness will be developed and demonstrated. The optimal matching of novel vehicle concepts and infrastructures is highly important, requiring the definition of smart infrastructure access policies for the next generation of trucks, load carriers and road infrastructure.
The project consortium consists of 23 partners from eight (8) EU countries.
