Hello & welcome!

This is the first blog post of DATASET2050:  “DATA-driven Approach for Seamless Efficient Travelling in 2050,” a coordination and support action funded by the European Commission, under H2020 Call MG.1.7. DATASET2050 is coordinated by Innaxis and we count in the team with University of Westminster, Bauhaus Luftfahrt and Eurocontrol as partners. We are also supported by an advisory board comprised of top European transport stakeholders. More info about us can be found in the “Partners page.

DATASET2050 aims to provide insights into the door-to-door European travel paradigm for the current, 2035 and 2050 transport scenarios, through a cutting edge data science approach. DATASET2050 is passenger-centric, paving the way for a seamless, user-centered and efficient, door-to-door travelling experience.

Through expert application of state-of-art predictive analytics, modelling, statistical analyses and data visualisation, with an examination of multimodal data, the executed analyses will enable the identification of European transport bottlenecks and weak areas across different scenarios. These findings will serve as a basis for the development of intermodal transport concepts, identifying possible solutions for current and future shortcomings. The insights gained through the project’s approach will highlight research needs towards the four-hour door-to-door goal formulated by ACARE.

DATASET2050’s kick-off meeting was held on 18th December 2014, and during this first month of 2015 quite a lot of different activities have been launched, among them, the current blog and website!

We will post details about the evolution of the project, including details on the events and meetings in which we hope you can contribute and benefit from the insights on door-to-door transport.
