Mobility is crossing a new digital frontier in terms of connectivity, allowing vehicles to communicate to each other, to the infrastructure and to other transport systems users. However, the potential implications and impacts of integration of CCAM solutions into the mobility system are not well understood neither for specific actors nor for the systems level. MOVE2CCAM will: i) explore the impact of CCAM passenger and freight solutions; define use cases, business models and KPIs through co-creation activities with the “Satellites”, and ii) develop a practical system dynamics-based impact assessment tool that will enable the evaluation of CCAM interventions’ impact on mobility-, socio-economic-, public health- and environmental-related aspects considering diverse European region specifics and different actors’ needs, objectives and perceptions. The Satellites is a multi-systems network of actors across the whole CCAM ecosystem consisting of industries, authorities, researchers citizens, and orbits around the project by participating in a series of co-creation activities. Case studies for different types of organisations, dialogues, social simulation experiments, virtual reality games, and AV demonstrations take place in 8 European countries and at a pan-European level to collect data and specify the multi-systems impacts of CCAMs. The impact assessment tool will allow stakeholders to test and evaluate the system-wide impacts of CCAM interventions along with a range of complementary policies providing also a series of KPIs (within the project it is applied for Helmond(NL), GZM(PL), and Aegean Islands(GR). Given these activities, MOVE2CCAM significantly contributes to a well-founded understanding of the impacts of CCAMs. It will deliver impact evaluation frameworks and tools with KPIs covering sectors such as society, economy, and the environment; policy recommendations for CCAM partnerships and large-scale demonstrations; and recommendations for SUMP.
EIT Urban Mobility: Pro-MaaS Project
February 14, 2020
Title: Policies and Regulations required for enabling the MaaS concept
Novel regulatory approaches and governance schemes supporting policy makers in Europe lead a successful transition towards Mobility as a Service. The project aims to identify drivers, barriers, enablers and challenges for the effective deployment of MaaS and the realisation of its expected benefits, building on international best practice while adapting to existing local regulatory frameworks and market conditions. The project will assess the mobility outlooking Europe and provide recommendations on implementing strategic roadmaps for MaaS. To the best of our knowledge, there is no existing review in disruptive mobility problems from a regulatory point of view adding MaaS, especially at the city level and with an European scope. Several cities around Europe are applying different regulatory policies regarding MaaS, with its pros and cons. Hence, the project gives a clear picture and proposes new regulations, since without a clear regulation it is difficult to design business strategies.
EIT Urban Mobility: UMAM project
February 14, 2020
Title: Analyse City Club cities with Urban Mobility Auditing Model (UMAM)
This project is to develop the analytical tool: urban mobility auditing model (UMAM).

SHARE-MORE stands for SHAREd MObility Rewards.
It is a 500k EURO research project funded by the EIT Urban Mobility; the consortium consists of 6 partners. The project aims to optimize the added value of car sharing services and promote a portfolio of transport services that enable and encourage sustainable urban mobility. The effectiveness and sustainability of carsharing integration into the bundle of transportation services will be achieved by understanding the needs of the three main stakeholders: travelers, transport authorities, and service providers, and by providing personalized incentives tailored to the needs of all the three stakeholders. The incentives will be designed to increase car sharing efficient use while contributing to the integration with the existing overall transportation system and its sustainability. The project will balance the needed knowledge base through its consortium consisting of universities, cities and car sharing commercial company to understand the underlying mechanisms of potential incentive designs, develop a specific incentive scheme, and pilot the proposed scheme within a real car sharing service.
