Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference abstract in proceedingsScientific


Mobility and transport services ranging from traveller information and traffic management to vehicle solutions are increasingly based on data from multiple sources. They are often delivered by a network of versatile organisations. The development of new data-driven solutions to address major challenges and business opportunities requires various skills and technologies but also new business models. In order to find win-win situations for different business and societal goals requires collaboration and joint development. This paper studies and reflects on experiences of building co-funded innovation ecosystems, and especially aligning research activities for innovation ecosystem stakeholder needs. Key issues to consider include timelines of when research results can be applied and how broad the potential fields of application are as well as addressing societal trends and future opportunities. The results contribute to knowledge creation within shared co-innovation arena – building up and conducting smart mobility co-innovation projects – aiming to serve both practitioners and researchers.
