CUTS - Collaborative Urban Transport

Start date 01/01/2011
End date The project is closed: 31/03/2013

Urban transport is rapidly becoming one of the major challenges of political leaders at city, regional and national level. Decision and planning processes in cities are extremely complex.

There is a strong need for collaborative research between authorities, industry and academy:
• to analyse impact of new urban transport solutions for people and goods,
• to identify barriers and enablers to broad deployment,
• to define introduction roadmaps and synergies between cities but even at regional and national level

The objective of the project is to speed-up the introduction of “collaborative urban
transport solutions” for goods and people by:
• defining common criteria and impact assessment methods (i.e. environment, safety and cost)
• coordinating and supporting further deployment of existing demonstrations and pilots in cities such as for example Lyon (France), Gothenburg (Sweden), Bangalore (India)
The project is part of the department target area Supply Chain Management. The research is carried out by the research centre Northern LEAD.
