T-Trans project to help bring innovative intelligent transport systems products and services to market

T-Trans BrochureT-Trans - a consortium of nine partners from seven EU countries aiming to encoure and accelerate market deployment of ITS related innovative products and services, funded by European Commission under the FP7 horizontal activities for the implementation of transport - has been tasked with analysing 'innovation chains', how research can be commercialisers and setting up a Innovation Network for ITS in Central Macedonia (Greece), Galicia (Spain) and Latvia.

Having 'kicked-off' its research programme last September in Barcelona, T-Trans has published two reports produced, and is looking to recruit more members.

The T-TRANS project stands for "Enhancing the transfer of Intelligent Transportation Systems innovations to the market", and its mission is to provide information on innovation mechanisms for the ITS, facilitating the transfer of related innovative products and services to the market. It is expected to produce guidance on:

  • Best practices for technology commercialisation, bringing out a better understanding of their market potential and providing a guideline for their future exploitation;
  • A systemic approach for ITS specific technology commercialisation strategy analysis
  • An Innovation Network for ITS, composed by “G-local” communities of interest to market in the transport sector, to link actors of the innovation chain and assess and promote the development their transport systems.

Smart grid, Revenue management technologies for freight, Intelligent inter-modality and rail network technology

Analysis will include cases studies in the fields of Smart grid: connection, charging and energy storage; Revenue management technologies for freight transport; Intelligent inter-modality and a system wide approach for rail network technology.

State of the art and policy

So far, T-Trans has produced two reports, both published on 8 May 2013: ITS state of the art assessment and Integrated report on Intelligent Transport Systems policy support.
