The European Commission has launched an online tool to analyse EU and Member State projects’ clean, connected and competitive contributions to Europe’s transport sector.
The Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS) is developed and implemented by the EU Joint Research Centre on behalf of the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport. It replaces the Transport Research & Innovation Portal (TRIP) and incorporates the latter’s database of over 10,000 EU and national transport research projects.
TRIMIS supports transport policy makers and researchers by helping to identify innovations with the greatest promise for the future, and aid policy makers to focus on areas where public intervention can create the highest added value.
TRIMIS will assess the impact of transport technologies on the EU transport system, including current developments and future applications. Finally, TRIMIS will communicate progress and issues to policy makers, Member States experts and authorities, research organisations, as well as industrial and financial communities.
