TEPR Projects: Support for sustainable transport websites
There is much activity, at the technological, policy and practical levels, on sustainable transport. Industry is investing in the research and development of cleaner technologies, while on the ground cities are trialling a range of different measures to improve the sustainability of transport. At the same time, policy makers are trying to ensure that the policy framework properly supports sustainable transport initiatives.
It is of fundamental importance that developments in technology and information on practical experience with sustainable transport measures are shared. Consequently, websites that provide up-to-date information on recent policy developments, case studies of sustainable transport measures and the latest research results are important to disseminate such information.
TEPR has worked on a number of relevant websites, including:
- TRIMIS. Between 2018 and 2021, TEPR was part of a consortium supporting the European Commission with the maintenance, development and analysis of the information on Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS). The aim of TRIMIS is to bring together the results of EU-supported research and innovation in transport together in one place, and to actively monitor its progress.
- Eltis. Since 2017, TEPR has been part of a consortium responsible for the maintenance and development of the Eltis urban mobility observatory. The portal is supported by the European Commission and aims to share news articles, case studies and more on good practice in sustainable urban mobility.
- EST goes EAST. Between 2013 and 2018, Ian Skinner of TEPR was the content editor of the EST goes EAST website for UN Environment.
- TRIP. Between 2015 and 2017, TEPR was part of a consortium that maintained, developed and analysed the contents of the Transport Research and Innovation Portal (TRIP) for the European Commission. TRIP was the predecessor of TRIMIS.
