Future Transport and Mobility

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.

DiePeR is producing new technology for the reduction of sub-23 nm particles from Diesel engines.
Uniresearch Role

Uniresearch was hired by the coordinator AVL to write and compile the grant application. After approval of the project, Uniresearch has become responsible for the project coordination and the dissemination activities.


The DiePeR consortium develops the knowhow and technical capabilities to adequately and cost-effectively produce cleaner, highly efficient diesel powertrains and aftertreatment technologies for future class D and E passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (up to 3,500 kg) that go beyond Euro 6 limits under Real Driving conditions (EU6 RDE). The consortium comprises key players in the light duty powertrain and vehicle manufacturing sectors (among which 2 OEMs, a major engine manufacturer, five major high end large component and engineering services suppliers and knowledge centres).
