EU-funded researchers are creating an information-sharing system for maritime surveillance authorities that will improve coordination on threats such as international terrorism and cross-border pollution at sea, contributing to a safer, cleaner Europe.
The report of the Expert Group on open research data in transport has been published!
The Report focuses on the requirements for data sharing within the transport research community. In particular, it examines the potential for the establishment of a Transport Research Cloud (TRC) as a subset of the European Union’s European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative.
Six domain experts collected data based on their personal experiences, contacts, prior research and a survey sent out to other researchers in the transport domain to enable a preliminary analysis concerning the needs, barriers and potential benefits of transport research data sharing. From this work ten recommendations have been developed that the Experts believe must be addressed if a sustainable Transport Research Cloud is to be realized.
Project e-Ferry for "EU Research and Innovation in our daily life", 27 November 2018
The high-level conference "EU Research and Innovation in our daily life" will take place in the European Parliament, Brussels, on 27 November from 14:00 to 18:45.
The event will showcase some EU funded projects and present an opportunity for policy-makers to exchange ideas with stakeholders, citizens, representatives from EU institutions, member states, universities and research centres.
Amongst selected projects, e-Ferry, in waterborne transport.

H2020 in support of vulnerable road user traffic safety
They strive to improve VRU safety by:
- Providing methodologies and technologies for understanding risk factors of VRU accidents and assessing the costs of their accidents,
- Developing user-friendly, technology-based systems to equalize the treatment of cyclists in traffic and
- Improving the effectiveness of active VRU safety systems.
To know more about these three projects, enjoy their videos at the RTD/Transport YouTube playlist.
The projects have now united for a joint final event to give an insight into the work done and the results from the projects. Practitioners, researchers, political decision makers and all other stakeholders are welcome to the one-day event taking place on 12 October 2018 in Sitges, Spain. Here, project results will be presented and new and enhanced technologies, tools and a handbook for practitioners will be exhibited and demonstrated.
Registration is open: don't miss this opportunity!
Prestigious aeronautics award goes to H2020 Transport project AGILE
Earlier this month, at the international ICAS 2018 Conference in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, the H2020 Transport project AGILE received the “ICAS Award for Innovation in Aeronautics”.
This prestigious prize is handed out “for outstanding and innovative contributions to the development of advanced aeronautical systems”.
The AGILE Project Consortium was selected “in recognition of aeronautic innovations and accomplishments in advancing the next generation of collaborative Multidisciplinary Design and Optimisation processes in international collaborations”.
The project started in June 2015 and has received some €7 million from the EU's Horizon 2020 programme. It brings together 19 industry, research and academic partners from nine countries to address the complex challenge of collaborative product development.
The project team has set the ambitious performance target of a 40 % reduction in the time needed to set up and solve multi-disciplinary aircraft design problems.
