Stakeholder consultation on the Staff Working Document: "For a resilient, innovative, sustainable and digital mobility ecosystem: Scenarios for a transition pathway"
Fields marked with * are mandatory.

Introduction

The update of the EU Industrial Strategy highlights the need to accelerate the green and digital transitions of EU Industry. Among the various instruments, the Commission proposed to co-create, in partnership with industry, public authorities, social partners and other stakeholders, transition pathways for ecosystems, where needed. Priority should be given also to sectors heavily affected by the crisis, which benefit from accelerating their twin transition in order to boost their recovery. The mobility ecosystem has been recognised to be one of these critical ecosystems and therefore, it will be tackled among the first ones, by co-creating its transition pathway together with its stakeholders.

The Commission services have prepared a Staff Working Document to outline possible scenarios for a transition pathway for a resilient, innovative, sustainable and digital mobility ecosystem. This document aims to launch a co-creation process for concrete actions, milestones and commitments with all stakeholders of the mobility ecosystem.

You are invited to engage in this process by sending your input through this online consultation form.

Based on the consultation results, the Commission will organise further meetings with stakeholders in the course of 2022 to deepen the discussions and finalise the transition pathway for the mobility ecosystem.

This survey will be open until 29 April 2022. You are, however, warmly encouraged to send your responses as soon as possible to facilitate early analysis.

In case of questions about this consultation, please send an email to GROW-I2@ec.europa.eu

General comments
What other general comments would like to give?
2,000 character(s) maximum
There is a strong drive for innovation and a desire to make GHG emission reductions happen “tomorrow”. Efforts are being made on decarbonisation, energy use and climate change in all four transport modes. At the same time evolutions in digitalisation, automation and AI are happening in society. The sense of urgency leads to a focus on technology where significant R&I funding is directed towards higher Technology Readiness Level solutions and their accelerated deployment. Fundamental understandings of complex contexts and connections are however instrumental for building well-founded decisions that complement and support the urgency for implementation. This calls for research as a complement to innovation and deployment, and a basis for informed decisions. While technological measures obtain a strong private-sector interest, it is left to the public sector alone to define policies and measures aimed at affecting travel patterns and transport behaviour. The public sector therefore has a responsibility for and an interest in funding research that contribute to more informed decisions from people, businesses and policy-makers. The general belief is that policy instruments e.g. green financing, carbon pricing, incentives for influencing peoples’ and organisations’ preferences and choices, as well as new business models for transport are required to accelerate the transition towards a carbon-neutral Europe. This will only happen if we provide people and society with better alternatives, based on a thorough understanding, informed decisions and evidence. Funding research alongside innovation, is essential for the development and evaluation of measures that are effective in each context. ECTRI is ready to contribute with better methods, tools and data to develop the best solutions and policy mix that can help achieving the goals of the European Green Deal while also ensuring the right investment decisions given limited public budgets.Complete paper: https://rb.gy/0jhiuc
