OPTIMISM

Optimising Passenger Transport Information to Materialize Insights for Sustainable Mobility


OPTIMISM

OPTIMISM will base its operating principles in three main blocks of activities:

  • Identifying the gaps and harmonisation of data in travel behaviour. This will lead to a unified set of data that will serve as reference material for future exploitation of existing studies and baseline information (or data)
  • Defining demand and supply factors that shape the transportation system and mobility patterns. This will aim to give an outlook on future developments by modelling and scenario simulation, and
  • Defining the potential decarbonisation of the passenger transport system and ensuring the sustainability of the system.

The decarbonisation potential and co-benefits of best practices/solutions will be based upon an analysis of ICT and co-modality options with an impact assessment of the research results.

The OPTIMISM partners will combine and utilise multidisciplinary skills, expertise, and on-going work in the fields of climate friendly transport, foresight, modelling, socio-economics, mobility behaviour, ITS and transport policy development. A Pan-European network with extensive coverage outside Europe as well, will lead dissemination tasks in order to ensure the widespread dissemination of results but also to allow access to various information sources relating to national surveys.
