The European project “HARMONY” was launched in London
TRT is partner of the international consortium appointed by the European Commission (Innovation and Networks Executive Agency, INEA) to exploit the HARMONY project Holistic Approach for Providing Spatial & Transport Planning Tools and Evidence to Metropolitan and Regional Authorities to Lead a Sustainable Transition to a New Mobility Era”. The project envisages developing a new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools which comprehensively model the dynamics of the changing transport sector and spatial organisation, enabling metropolitan area authorities to lead the transition to a low carbon new mobility era in a sustainable manner. At the same time, demonstrations of new mobility services such as electric AVs and drones for freight delivery will take place to understand in real-life their requirements and impacts. The concepts and the model suite will be applied and validated on six EU metropolitan areas: Rotterdam (NL), Oxfordshire (UK),Turin (IT), Athens (GR), Trikala (GR), Upper Silesian-Zaglebie Metropolis (PL).
The kick-off meeting has been held at the beginning of June in London. More information are available in the press release.
