Exciting news in SUM lab!
The metaCCAZE and V2G-QUESTS projects have officially launchedThe metaCCAZE, a Horizon Europe project with 44 partners, will drive the adoption of smart and automated mobility systems in European cities, in line with the EU's Green Deal goals.
Simultaneously, V2G-QUESTS, led by top European universities, aims to develop equitable Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) solutions for better power grid balancing, integrating social sciences with engineering and technology.
Stay tuned for upcoming open positions!
SUM project- Sustainable TransportAs the world has experienced the warmest global average daily temperature, climbing to 17.23° C last week, we need to accelerate on sustainability of our urban mobility! The SUM Project is aiming to increase the usage of shared modes and integrate them with public transport.
We have received a grant from Rijkswaterstaat on design of a resilient road networks against the negative impacts of climate change.
SUM lab lands a JPI-ERANET grant (2023-2026)In collaboration with 9 national funding agencies from 9 countries, NWO has selected 8 projects for funding within the joint JPI Urban Europe and NSFC call (ENUAC). Dutch research teams are involved in 4 of the projects. Together with public and private partners researchers will set to work on sustainable urban logistics in the age of digitisation and strengthening climate-neutral mobility.
Accessibility of urban regions on a low car diet – A research agenda for digital twinsIn the journal Communications in Transportation Research, we propose a digital twin modelling federation as basis for a research agenda to develop a new generation of transportation models for the development of smart mobility modes in ‘car-low’ urban areas.
SUMMALab helps mobility pilots to scale up
Putting the urban mobility jigsaw together, piece by pieceHaving your own car, bike or moped may be convenient but it’s also clogging up our city centres. Shared mobility can make cities easier to navigate and improve air quality. But adopting it efficiently is easier said than done. SUMMALab helps local authorities to piece together the urban mobility jigsaw. ‘Shared mobility isn’t such a big leap when you think about it.
