The lighthouse Horizon 2020 TransformingTransport (TT) project had a sound presence at the EBDVF 2018! After the great success of EBDVF17, the new edition of the European Big Data Value Forum was held in Vienna from the 12th to the 14th of November 2018. The European Big Data Value Forum is a key European event for industry professionals, business developers, researchers, and policymakers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the European data economy and data-driven innovation in Europe. Under this light, TT has organized a session on making transport more sustainable and efficient and co-organised with project LeMO and BDVA Subgroup Leader of Mobility and Logistics, a workshop on Policy issues, opportunities and barriers in Big Data-driven transport. Mire details depicted below:

 

TT-organised a session on “Making transport more sustainable and efficient”.

Big data plays a significant role in working towards the resolution of the various challenges inclusive on how smart cities and companies obtain their transportation targets and use and deploy ICT to enhance their transportation networks. Thanks to modern technology, data collection tools and analytics don’t have to slow transportation professionals down anymore, in fact, these tools can be some of the planners’ most valuable assets. To discuss all these challenges TT invited willing contributors to this dedicated session that showcased sustainable and efficient big data solutions in the domains of logistics, aviation and rail deriving from exemplary projects.

 

Workshop on “Policy issues, opportunities and barriers in big data-driven transport” co-organised by TT in cooperation with the BDVA Mobility and Logistics Subgroup & the LeMO Horizon 2020 project.

The workshop aimed to reach out to the audience during and after the various presentations to gather valuable feedback. The aim is the formation of a common policy roadmap relating to the topics identified for Big Data in transport. Ultimately, the results of the workshop will enable the identification of industry-led recommendations to (EU) policymakers in relation to Big Data and transport driving a roadmap creation activity to be populated by big data specialists and to validate, clarify, complement and/or challenge the identified opportunities, barriers and limitation relating to big data exploitation.

TransformingTransport videos and material showcasing the progress of the project and its pilots were presented at the BDV PPP Village.
