Kick-off of the new EU project EcoMobility
For a sustainable society with intelligent mobility solutions
Fraunhofer IESE is proud to be part of the European project EcoMobility, which had its official kick-off on May 24th, 2023. The kick-off was a 2-day event hosted in Vienna, Austria, by the coordinator TTTech Auto AG, a global company that provides solutions for the challenges of future vehicle generations. In the project, Fraunhofer IESE will contribute to assuring the safety of connected and automated mobility solutions by developing a collaborative dynamic risk management approach.
EcoMobility is a three-year project funded by the Key Digital Technologies Joint Undertaking (KDT JU), a public-private partnership in collaboration with the Horizon Europe (HORIZON) Framework Programme and national authorities.
The project aims to lead the European mobility industry and support EU cities’ transitioning from isolated and static transportation means towards a service-centric, connected mobility ecosystem by sharing data and services across all involved stakeholders. To do so, the project will:
- deliver exemplary applications of the architecture, the components, and the domain model in six  supply chains
- apply SOTA and beyond SOTA technologies [so-called digital enablers] and know-how that empower all phases of a highly automated vehicle life cycle
- deliver a comprehensive market analysis and a detailed business plan regarding the project’s sustainability by analyzing both the supply and the demand side drivers and characteristics
Dr. Mohammed Abuteir, the project coordinator from TTTech Auto AG, initiated the meeting, which was then acknowledged with a greeting from the company's CTO, Dr. Stefan Poledna. Representatives of all 47 partners from 9 countries highlighted the importance of this scientific initiative. Fraunhofer IESE is one of these research partners. They presented in detail all the priorities of the work packages and laid the ground for a well-orchestrated and synced implementation of the project’s workplan.
A welcome message was delivered by project officer Dr. Espinoza Huascar, who stressed “the importance to grow the EcoMobility community by connecting globally with other projects, pharmaceuticals, and clusters, since there are strong agendas for cooperation regarding connected and automated mobility at the EU and international level”.
