New and Innovative Concepts for Helping European transport Sustainability

Objectif

The NICHES project is a co-ordination action, which will facilitate the coordination of research activities of academic institutions, industry, mobility operators and transport authorities in the area of innovative urban transport concepts and will help to identify and disseminate excellent, transferable examples of innovative transport measures in the most crucial areas of urban transport. The NICHES project objectives can be summarised as follows: - enhance discussion and knowledge exchange between practitioners, experts and researchers in the field of urban transport in Europe, ensuring that different sectors will be involved (transport authorities, operators, industry, academics, and other researchers, as well as users); - provide a forum for those involved in European research activities and projects, as well as national, local and industrial initiatives in the area of innovative urban transport concepts to share their knowledge and experience; - develop an accessible document store and a knowledge base amongst urban transport experts and practitioners on innovative transport concepts, as well as integrated urban transport strategies, in which several innovative concepts are implemented in a combined way; - identify future research needs and pave the way for innovative transport concepts, meeting mobility needs in 2020; - develop a platform for capacity building (tools and content) for practitioners with guidance on developing and implementing innovative concepts in the framework of integrated urban transport strategies. NICHES will provide coordination for a wide range of innovative urban transport concepts through a combined programme of stakeholder involvement via targeted in-depth interviews, expert working groups (adopting a successful, previously adopted focus group approach), and validation and dissemination workshops, accompanied by desk research and good practice in the field of urban transport.
