TRIMIS (the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System portal) is an open-access knowledge management system that consists of a large database of EU-funded and nationally-funded transport research projects and programmes together with an inventory of transport technologies and innovations. The portal has now published a new revamp to improve usability.
TRIMIS provides an assessment of technology trends and transport R&I capacities in the EU and aims at disseminating information and data to a wide range of stakeholders, as well as developing analytical tools relevant to the European transport system. It is an important resource which currently contains information on approximately 9,000 transport R&I projects and programmes, including many related to urban mobility, and acts as a central hub for transport researchers and policy makers all over Europe.
In 2017, the European Commission (EC) adopted the Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA) to promote transport research and innovation (R&I) for clean, connected and competitive mobility in the EU. Seven STRIA roadmaps that outlined priority areas with specific actions for future R&I were identified: Cooperative, connected and automated transport; transport electrification; vehicle design and manufacturing; low-emission alternative energy for transport; network and traffic management systems; smart mobility and services; and infrastructure. TRIMIS monitors the implementation and effectiveness of the roadmaps developed and it also supports the EU’s Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy.
The newly revamped site aims at improving the user experience through up-to-date visuals, clearer structure, updated roadmap pages and country profiles that now include infographics with KPIs, and a dashboard that visualises TRIMIS data on transport R&I in detail. The search function has also been improved by adding a search hub and refined filtering options.
