EU Projects

If you represent a research institute or stakeholder who is interested in collaborating with TØI on projects in Horizon Europe, please contact Research Director Jardar Andersen. E-mail: jan@toi.no

TØI has for a number of years participated in various EU projects, both as Partner and as Scientific Coordinator. Below we have listed projects we are participating in at the moment.

ULaaDS
Urban Logistics as an on Demand Service

A consortium led by 3 municipalities (pilot cities) committed to zero emissions city logistics (Bremen, Mechelen, Groningen) has joined forces with logistics stakeholders and leading academic institutions to accelerate the deployment of novel, feasible, shared and ZE solutions addressing major upcoming challenges generated by the rising on-demand economy in future urban logistics.

BuildERS
Increasing resilience in Europe

The BuildERS project will develop knowledge and insights that will device recommendations for policies, plans, strategies, and competencies for building partnerships, networks and trust for progressively fortifying the social capital and resilience against future threats, be they natural or man-induced.

DriveToTheFuture
Needs, wants and behaviour of 'Drivers' and automated vehicle users today and into the future

The project DriveToTheFuture aims to prepare “drivers”, travelers and vehicle operators of the future to accept and use connected, cooperative and automated transport modes and the industry of these technologies to understand and meet their needs and wants.

VIRTUAL
Open access virtual testing protocols for enhanced road user safety

The objective of VIRTUAL is to improve the safety of road users by providing procedures and open access tools to assess the benefit of novel safety systems. The goal is to establish a European based global hub for Open Source Virtual Testing (OpenVT) and to demonstrate its success in traffic safety. Open Source Human Body Models of both men and women will be made available in a format that is scalable to represent different ages and sizes of car occupants, vulnerable road users, and users of public transport.

Previous projects 

CITYLAB

Coordinated by TOI

CITYLAB established living labs as a working method in city logistics, and the objective was to develop knowledge and solutions resulting in up-scaling and roll-out of strategies, measures and tools for emission-free city logistics in urban centres by 2030.

SAFETYCUBE

The primary objective of the SafetyCube project was to develop an innovative road safety Decision Support System (DSS) to enable policy-makers and stakeholders to select and implement the most appropriate strategies, measures and cost-effective approaches to reduce casualties of all road user types and all severities in Europe and worldwide.

SMART-RAIL

SMART-RAIL was one of the lighthouse projects of SHIFT2RAIL and contributed to Innovation Programme 5. The SMART-RAIL project was aligned with the objectives of SHIFT2RAIL, ensuring that the results could be used in further research in this programme. SMART-RAIL was funded under the H2020 Programme of the European Commission. SMART-RAIL was launched in May 2015 and ended in April 2018.
