SOLUTIONSPLUS

InCo Flagship Innovation Action on "Urban mobility and sustainable electrification in large urban areas in developing and emerging countries"

SOLUTIONSplus brings together highly committed cities, industry, research, implementing organisations and finance partners and establishes a global platform for shared, public and commercial e-mobility solutions to kick start the transition towards low-carbon urban mobility. The project encompasses city level demonstrations to test different types of innovative and integrated e-mobility solutions, complemented by a comprehensive toolbox, capacity development and replication activities. Demonstration actions will be launched in Hanoi (Vietnam), Pasig (Philippines), Lalitpur/Kathmandu (Nepal), Kigali (Rwanda), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Quito (Ecuador), Montevideo (Uruguay), Madrid (Spain), Nanjing (China) and Hamburg (Germany).

TRANS-SAFE

Safe, Resilient Transport and Smart Mobility services for passengers and goods

The TRANS-SAFE project will involve national, regional, and city level demonstrations to test different types of innovative and integrated Safe System solutions, complemented by a comprehensive toolbox, capacity development, policy support and replication activities. To maximise impact, the project brings together in a consortium, highly committed cities, road safety agencies and experts from both Europe and Africa. Building on numerous synergistic projects, networks, and a strong technical experience among partners, the consortium will deliver an ambitious project through highly effective and innovative approaches to sustainable road safety development, thereby ensuring that road safety systems and interventions fromm this project deliver on the recommendations of the Road Safety Cluster of the African-EU Transport Task Force.

SESA

Improving Africa’s access to sustainable energy

Implemented in nine African countries, the EU-funded SESA project will develop and test solutions to accelerate the green transition and energy access in Africa. It will explore innovative technologies and services in urban and rural contexts and support their uptake, deepening technical, financial and policy aspects. Specifically, SESA will co-develop innovations with local partners. The first phase will start in Kenya, where solutions include using water hyacinths from Lake Victoria to produce biogas. In the second phase, SESA will test energy solutions in Ghana, Malawi, Morocco and South Africa. The findings, included in a scalable toolbox for advanced implementation and management strategies, will facilitate the applicability and replicability of the technologies.

AFRICAN URBAN MOBILITY OBSERVATORY

Objective

To promote inclusive, low-carbon mobility in African LIC cities, by piloting Big Data applications to generate data, benchmark performance, and draw policy insights.

This project will look at the following questions and themes.

  • Policy Levers: What are the main levers for mode share and what is the role of data? What cities have achieved high or low transit ridership, cycling, etc., and what factors / policies explain their differences?

  • Big Data Technology: What are the opportunities and risks of big data applications in HVT cities?

  • Informal (Paratransit): What is role of informal transport in the global South and how to enable transition towards a clean, affordable & efficient solution for HVT?

FUTURE HORIZON

Objective

In particular, FUTURE-HORIZON will pursue the following objectives:

  • Provide high-quality input for ERTRAC research roadmaps, strategic research agendas and other implementation documents.

  • Assess RTR strategies in Europe, other established markets and emerging markets.

  • Support capacity-building for local and national policy makers and practitioners, to generate and implement innovative sustainable mobility solutions.

  • Utilize the expertise of a well-developed stakeholder network, incorporating also external advice in project outputs.

  • Develop an ERTRAC dissemination strategy and communicate key ERTRAC activities and publications
