On 31 January 2020, EPOMM (European Platform on Mobility Management) published its latest e-update on the topic of future mobility and innovation.
The theme is described as follows:
All indicators are trending towards continued growth in the global demand for mobility. The UN anticipates that the world population will increase from 7.8 billion to 9.7 billion in 2050. Urbanisation is expected to reach 68 percent by 2050 vs. 55 percent today. Consequently, it is paramount to transform how we move people and goods in order to offer more mobility with less impact.
In order to address this existential challenge, this edition of the EPOMM e-update throws a spotlight on mobility innovations and the future of sustainable mobility and provides insights on the Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA) Roadmap - Smart Mobility Systems and Services 2019.
