The kick off meeting of the MOMENTUM project - Modelling Emerging Transport Solutions for Urban Mobility took place on 16-17 May in Madrid. The project is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 framework programme and will be carried out by a consortium of 12 partners, including the University of Deusto. The project is coordinated by Empresa Municipal de Transportes (EMT) in Madrid.
The team will develop a set of new data analysis methods, transport models and planning support tools that can capture the impact of disruptive technologies such as MaaS and CAVs. These emerging technologies are forcing radical changes on urban mobility and the MOMENTUM project will support city authorities in the task of designing the right policy mix to exploit their full potential.
The University of Deusto Mobility Research Group participates as leader of the tasks collection and analysis of data from the users of public transport (e.g. bus, train, car-sharing), with the aim of generating new transport models for urban planning in cities.
MOMENTUM project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 815069
