Øresund EcoMobility (EcoMobility)


 

Abstract:

The Øresund Region is the largest hub in Scandinavia for transport of goods and people by sea, road, air and railway. Efficient and cheap transportation is a key factor for regional growth. However, transportation also accounts for 30% of CO2 emissions in Sweden and 25% in Denmark, and it is necessary to act in order to reduce CO2 emissions while increasing mobility and accessibility. Øresund EcoMobility Knowledge & Innovation Centre aims to promote sustainable and climate friendly transport solutions. Throughout the Øresund region, there is profound knowledge and many compentencies on the subject ”climate friendly transportation”. Øresund EcoMobility Knowledge & Innovation Centre strives to gather these competencies in a unified network of universities, industries and regional authorities. This unique network of regional competencies, will consist of over 40 experts within areas such as: cleantech, environmental science, infrastructure, city and transport planning, logistics and supply chain management.

The project builds on three stages:

1. Cross-science Triple‐Helix Thematic Knowledge Exchange Networks which gather knowledge on climate friendly transportation of goods and people.

2. Øresund EcoMobility Knowledge & Innovation Centre, which carries out knowledge dissemination, innovation and competence building.

3. Øresund Competence Building and Knowledge Sharing activities, such as publications, websites, workshops, conferences and courses for professionals, university students etc.
