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 IDIADA and FIA region I as coordinating parties to write the proposal in two stages. This proposal started in Jan 2018, whereas the second stage of the proposal was submitted in Sept 2018. The proposal was successful evaluated and the project started 1st of June 2019.
The Green Vehicle Index (GVI) Project will provide a scoring methodology to complement pass-fail information and independently assess the full environmental performance of a vehicle in the most comprehensive manner. Most importantly, this will enable consumers to make purchases based on environmental considerations in an easy and objective fashion. At the same time, transparency will be maximised by making detailed test results available to experts and consumers. This is of paramount importance, helping to address concerns raised on the regulatory side, as well as on data made available by the industry. The results of this project is direct input into the Green NCAP.
The project consortium consists of fourteen (14) partners.
