DATASET2050 – H2020 CSA coordinated by Innaxis

How can we provide a seamless travel experience from door to door for future European passengers? This question is addressed by the DATASET2050 project which Innaxis is coordinating. DATASET2050 is an aviation Coordination and Support Action (CSA) funded by European Commission within the H2020 frame and coordinated by Innaxis.

DATASET2050 (DATA driven approach for a Seamless Efficient Travelling in 2050) deals with those Flightpath 2050 goals that postulate future air transport to be more passenger-centric and to incorporate the door-to-door perspective. It complements the vision for European transport with guidelines and quantitative targets how the goals can be accomplished as well as with conceptual foundations. Project partners are Innaxis (Spain-coordinator), University of Westminster (United Kingdom), Eurocontrol (Belgium) and Bauhaus Luftfahrt (Germany).

The CSA is divided into four blocks, each of them focusing on a different aspect of the mobility assessment challenge: the data architecture and modelling, the passenger needs assessment, the supply of transport services assessment and the mobility assessment that, inter alia, includes novel concepts foundations.

In the course of the project, a data-driven toolset will be developed to assess the main characteristics of the current system and to analyze various future scenarios. State-of-the-art data analysis techniques together with the analysis on customer and transport services demand and supply evolution will be integrated to correctly identify the opportunities for Europe in this context. The following specific objectives will be addressed:

  • Identification and acquisition of relevant datasets to support the analysis
  • Depiction of current and future passenger expectations, needs and requirements
  • Building of a data-driven model
  • Development of mobility metrics
  • Understanding of the current and future air transport services supply
  • Identification and initial development of novel concept foundations, identification of (potential) bottlenecks within the current and future transport system
  • Sound dissemination and communication among the relevant stakeholders

Project was kicked-off December 2014, and so far two deliverables concerning management and dissemination topics have already been submitted.  In addition to the KoM at Brussels, the partners also recently met at the University of Westminster (London) to discuss detailed content and data requirements for the data-driven model to be developed in WP2.
