MODUM addresses the environmental footprint in the transport sector by aiming to develop a new approach for pro-active demand-responsive management of traffic. This approach will enable energy-efficient multi-modal transport choices accommodating dynamic variations, minimising the environmental impact and improving the quality of life in urban environments.

The eCOMPASS project addresses high-demand urban mobility aspects, primarily aiming at reducing the environmental footprint related with the mobility of people and goods in the urban space. In this context, eCOMPASS primarily investigates two mobility scenarios with significant contribution to urban CO2 emissions and energy consumption: mobility of humans using private vehicles and mobility of goods (i.e. delivery, distribution and collection) through fleets of vehicles carrying light or heavy freights. In parallel, eCOMPASS aims at developing advanced web and mobile information services that will facilitate the use of complex contemporary urban public transportation networks, thereby making ‘green’ human transports more appealing and usable to urban resident populations and tourists. In addition to establishing solid theoretical foundations for the proposed route planning services, an important objective of eCOMPASS is to implement novel and efficient algorithmic solutions and deliver the respective services to familiar end-user devices.

 The InTraRegio project is a coordination action funded under the “Regions of knowledge” programme from the 7th Framework Programme. The project brings together five clusters from different European regions: Canary Islands (ES), Bremen (DE), Marmara (TR), Calabria (IT) and Ruse (BG) with the aim to enhance intermodality in their regional transport systems, foster the economic developments of the regions and improve clusters’ capacities and performance. Through mutual learning processes and collaborative relationships among the regional research-driven clusters, represented by 18 partners coming from governmental, research and industrial side, a transnational strategy will be established, directed at developing the take up of innovative measures that spin towards new collaboration among regional players and address as a joint force transport-related issues.

HoPE has a 'sister' project called MobiWallet. This project aims to make use of Smart mobility partnerships and demonstration projects (pilots) for sustainable urban transport solutions based on interoperable fare management. The specific pilots deployed across Europe will demonstrate the benefits of a unified platform that can cope with the payment schemes of a varied range of transport operators. Although some solutions to the interoperability problem already exist, these will be coupled with a Smartphone-based electronic payment service and a personalized trip planning service. As such, this project implements a vision where interoperability is no longer an issue, and cities can provide an electronic fare management system with unparalleled intelligence and functionalities that can be exploited by users and town hall officials alike.
