The NOVELOG project focuses on the enabling of knowledge and understanding of freight distribution and service trips by providing guidance for implementing effective and sustainable policies and measures. This guidance supports the choice of the most optimal and applicable solutions for urban freight and service transport. It also facilitates stakeholder collaboration and the development, field testing and transfer of best governance and business models.

OPTICITIES is a three-years innovation project implemented between 2013 and 2016. It gathered European cities, companies and research institutes to develop and experiment innovative Intelligent Transport System (ITS) solutions to foster efficient and sustainable urban mobility.
OPTICITIES addressed the whole information value chain on mobility: from data collection to processing up to services’ delivery towards final users including network operators, citizens and freight operators. One of the project’s singularities was based on the cooperation of operators and innovators looking jointly forward to scale up solutions aimed at being implemented and commercialised in a three years horizon.
OPTICITIES results are impressive! They include operational tools and solutions, some of them already supporting network exploitation, providing concrete answers to urban mobility stakes.
They also include prospective developments designed to address tomorrow’s challenges in terms of urban mobility at European scale. All approaches have been conducted including the idea of challenging the economical framework and supporting large-scale replications.
This Transferability Handbook has been elaborated as a toolbox targeting cities and service providers looking for references, concrete experiences and contacts. It presents a digest of OPTICITIES key results.

Ireland has set an ambitious target to have one in ten total trips made on bicycle by 2020. One main measures to achieve this target is the development of safe, comfortable and high-quality cycling network. This led the transport authority of the Greater Dublin Area to draft an ambitious cycle network plan, which was published December 2013. The plan is that the transport authority of the Greater Dublin Area’s existing cycle network increases from 500 km in length to 2900 km by 2020.
From 16.-19. April 2018 Europes biggest Transport Research Conference, the Transport Research Arena, will take place in Vienna. Under the motto "a digital era for transport. solutions for society, economy and environment" about 3.000 international experts will discuss about the latest research results and future developments in mobility and transport.
The Transport Research Arena (TRA), initiated in 2006, takes place every two years in another European city. The TRA is supported by the European Commission, the European Technology Platforms ERTRAC (European Road Transport Research Advisory Council), ERRAC (European Rail Research Advisory Council), WATERBORNE as well as CEDR (Conference of European Directors of Roads) and ALICE (Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration).
DIC Brno system ensures the traffic data collection from telematics devices and detectors and traffic information in the City of Brno area. DIC Brno process that data and provide the complex information to the traffic engineers, users from city road management authorities and to the public via web or mobile application.
