Labs for prototyping future Mobility Data sharing cloud solutions

Reggio Emilia, 16 February 2021  ― ICOOR is proud to participate in the Horizon 2020 EU Research and Innovation programme by contributing to the 3-year MobiDataLab project  coordinated by AKKA Technologies, launched on February 1st, 2021.

The MobiDataLab project

The MobiDataLab project aims to foster digitalisation for mobility stakeholders through the development of a worldwide data sharing culture, starting with Europe. The research programme will help mobility stakeholders to optimize use of data for the improvement of their operations and services by proposing a replicable methodology and sustainable tools.

The MobiDataLab project is based on a continuous co-development of knowledge and technical solutions for data sharing in the transport and mobility sectors. This will be put in action through problem-solving oriented Labs, the collection and analysis of advice and recommendations of experts, and supporting cities/regions/clusters/associations. They will be aided by the incremental construction of a cross-thematic knowledge base, and of a cloud-based service platform, which will coordinate access and usage of data sharing resources.

ICOOR’s role in the MobiDataLab project

ICOOR participates in the MobiDataLab consortium, composed of 9 partners across Europe from various sectors (Industry, Research, Academia, Consultancy and Governance). The consortium shares a common view on the values and benefits of open data and open source principles for fostering independence and uptake by communities. 

In particular, ICOOR will be the WP3 “New Data Sharing Services and Business Models” coordinator, being the leader also of the task 3.3 “Gap Analysis” and the task 3.5 “Societal and environmental impacts of data sharing assessment framework). 

Furthermore, ICOOR will lead the task 5.2 “Quantification and measurement of data exchange culture” and will contribute in many other activities of the project.
