TRIMIS as a Support Tool for Transport Research and Innovation Horizon Scanning

The Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS) is an open-access transport information system. The TRIMIS database contains transport research and innovation projects and programmes classified according to the seven Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA) roadmaps that were adopted by the European Commission (EC) in May 2017. The roadmaps cover: cooperative, connected and automated transport; transport electrification; vehicle design and manufacturing; low-emission alternative energy for transport; network and traffic management systems; smart mobility and services; infrastructure. One of the objectives of TRIMIS is to support Transport Research and Innovation (R&I) horizon scanning. The Joint Research Centre (JRC) has developed a capacity for foresight and horizon scanning. Within the TRIMIS framework, horizon scanning is a structured and systematic collaborative exercise that contributes to the identification of new and emerging technologies and trends, helps to assess current and future research needs, and feeds into the broader JRC horizon scanning system with regard to transport. TRIMIS therefore aims to support the establishment of an anticipatory and adaptive culture in the field of European transport R&I, providing insights to users and contributing to a higher-level strategic framework. This report provides a first overview of the TRIMIS horizon scanning methodology and identifies areas for further development.
