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 ITS-Norway to help write the winning proposal for the MODI project. Since the start of the project, Uniresearch is subcontracted by ITS-Norway to provide management tools and support in the reporting and monitoring of the project
The overall objective of MODI is to accelerate the introduction of connected, cooperative and automated mobility (CCAM) vehicles for logistics by demonstrations and to overcome barriers for the roll-out of automated transport systems and solutions in logistics. MODI will focus on the interaction between vehicles and logistics processes, traffic safety, security, optimal utilisation of infrastructure capacity and environment, and recommendations for the optimal design or adaptions of infrastructure. The MODI initiative will demonstrate what is needed to have automated freight transport on an entire corridor through five European countries.
The project consortium consists of 34 partners from 8 EU countries.
