Research and Policy Roadmap for Successful Big Data Implementation in the Transport Sector Unveiled

published: 06-11-2020

The research and policy roadmap, the final report of the Leveraging Big Data to Manage Transport Operations (LeMO) project, has been unveiled on the 29th of October. The roadmap includes a set of actions from the research and policy point of view that governments, businesses and industries in Europe should implement in order to effectively take advantage of big data solutions with the aim of providing added value for society in the transport sector. It is the culmination of work completed under the previous tasks of the LeMO project.

This roadmap is divided in two sections: namely a research roadmap focused on identifying the research priorities at stake, and a policy roadmap providing a set of recommendations to build a policy framework which will ensure that the European transport sector can make the most out of the data transition.

In total, the roadmap contains eleven research actions and thirteen policy actions, which are spread over eleven themes. These actions are designed to improve the data economy in the transport sector and provide a source of inspiration for further research in this area. This roadmap ends with a suggestion for the implementation of the actions.

The aim of the roadmap is to guide European transport policy and research efforts to develop an EU model for a socially responsible big data economy for transport, to allow stakeholders to identify and meet big data challenges and proceed with a shared understanding of the societal impact and concrete problems worth investigating in future programmes.

The roadmap can be found here.

The roadmap is the final result of the LeMO project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It has been developed together with Western Norway Research Institute (WNRI), Confederation of Organisations in Road Transport Enforcement (CORTE) and Bird&Bird.
