The role of societal resistance in transportation innovation

This paper focuses on the description of societal trends related to mobility and on the way that these trends can be perceived from the society, when implemented. This action represents the starting point of the European project Mobility4EU that focuses on creating an action plan for the coherent implementation of innovative transport and mobility solutions in Europe. In Mobility4EU we have defined a set of possible societal aspects that might lead to societal resistance to the implementation of the future transport megatrends that have been defined. This paper aims to highlight the possibility of societal resistance to a wider implementation of innovative transport solutions, related to foreseen megatrends for the 2030. In consequence the list has not the ambition to be comprehensive, but rather provide a first overview of the societal reaction to widespread diffusion of foreseen solutions.
