TRIPS - Transport Innovation for vulnerable-to-exclusion People needs Satisfaction

Project: Research direct

Project Details


With a budget of 2,8 mln euro the TRIPS project will design, describe and demonstrate practical steps to empower people with disabilities to play a central role in the design of inclusive digital mobility solutions.

TRIPS will conduct research on needs and attitudes towards future mobility solutions; review the state-of-the-art on accessibility, mobility and related digital and assistive technologies and policies and devise an index to measure mobility. TRIPS will bring together users and transport experts to discuss institutional barriers to adoption, agree innovation priorities and policy changes and co-develop an innovation roadmap and research priorities.

The consortium utilises its international reach to validate outcomes with a wider range of vulnerable-to exclusion users to ensure that outcomes are relevant to the wider population and transport ecosystem. To achieve this, TRIPS reaches out to senior citizens and migrant organisations, transport operators, municipalities, assistive technology providers as well as academics and students in design, transport management, and public administration. In doing so, we will address the expected impacts of the call to help (a) regional authorities and businesses in designing digital transport solutions that cater for individual needs and (b) support policy-makers in designing appropriate regulatory frameworks and social and educational strategies.

At the end the project aims to produce a new set of user engagement protocols and methods that allow complex and empowered access to decision making processes in the design and development of transport solutions.

The consortium of 11 organizations brings together pan-European networks of users (ENIL), transport organisations (UITP), assistive technology experts (AAATE) and municipalities to engage in open innovation on mobility. Supported by design methodology experts (TUE), systems integration experts (TB) and privacy experts (TRI) TRIPS will deliver and deploy a Co-design-for-All methodology in 7 pilot cities - Lisbon, Zagreb, Bologna, Cagliari, Brussels, Sofia, Stockholm.
