deployEMDS: Open opportunities to create a common European mobility data space

Co-funded by the EU Digital Europe Programme, the deployEMDS project aims to create a common European mobility data space and foster a broad ecosystem of data providers and users. This initiative will make it easier to adopt common building blocks and contribute to the development of innovative services and applications. Sixteen use cases from nine EU countries will support this project. The European mobility data space (EMDS) will provide a framework for interlinking and federating ecosystems, and deployEMDS will support this initiative. EIT Urban Mobility is one of the proud partners of this initiative.

The deployEMDS project implements 9 local pilots across Barcelona, Budapest, Flanders, Île-de-France, Lisbon, Milan, Sofia, Stockholm, and Tampere, featuring 16 use cases focusing on data for mobility planning, public transport operation, multimodality, and specialty travel information.

New opportunities for EIT Urban Mobility partners

There are new opportunities for EIT Urban Mobility partners to become part of the initiative: The Innovation and Scaling Group and the deployEMDS Network of Follower Cities and Regions:

The Innovation and Scaling Group

develop new innovative use cases in mobility data sharing, promote knowledge exchange and peer learning on mobility data spaces

The project has started working on establishing the Innovation and Scaling Group (ISG).  The ISG aims to bring private stakeholders together with partner cities to develop new innovative use cases in mobility data sharing, promote knowledge exchange and peer learning on mobility data spaces. It also offers a platform for private actors to contribute their perspectives to shaping standards and developments of a common European mobility data space.

All EIT Urban Mobility partners interested in joining the ISG are welcome to attend the introductory webinar on 23 April, 13:30-14:30 CEST, and submit their application form here.

Additionally, they can find more information in the following link

deployEMDS Network of Follower Cities and Regions

The deployEMDS Network of Follower Cities and Regions is a group designed to engage with external local and regional public entities interested in shaping the future of the common European mobility data space by supporting the development of the deployEMDS project. Targeted at local and regional public authorities & PTOs, members have the opportunity to contribute to the development of better mobility data policies and standards within the EU, learn from leading cities about the implementation of tailor-made mobility data solutions, participate in targeted capacity-building activities focused on data spaces and governance, and collaborate with established industry players and platforms to address real-world mobility challenges.

Interested?
