TRIMIS report on public transport research and innovation in Europe

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has recently published a report in the context of TRIMIS (the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System) on Public transport research and innovation in Europe(link is external), which identifies the relevant projects from the TRIMIS database that have a focus on public transport. In so doing, the report provides a quantitative and qualitative review of the recent trends, challenges and achievements of European research and innovation initiatives in public transport. It also presents future research needs and policy recommendations. 

Key themes for research and innovation identified in the policy documents and in the public transport-related projects reviewed in the report, are: digitalisation, emissions reduction, public transport planning and management, safety, transport infrastructure development, and the deployment of connected and automated mobility.
