Research for the TRAN Committee - Infrastructure funding challenges in the sharing economy

04-05-2017

The study analyses the disruption created by shared mobility in the funding of transport infrastructure. While recognizing the benefits of shared mobility in terms of reduction of private car use, the study identifies that there might be short term negative effects on the revenues of long distance railway and coach operators. It also points out other potential risks, which include capture of value by commissions charged by platforms mediating mass-transit services (Mobility as a Service), freeriding ...

It also points out other potential risks, which include capture of value by commissions charged by platforms mediating mass-transit services (Mobility as a Service), freeriding and lower tax contributions. The study makes recommendations to reduce these risks.

The silver economy: Opportunities from ageing

15-07-2015

The 'silver economy' covers a host of different but interlinked strands; together these can improve the quality of life and inclusion in society and involvement in economic activity of the ageing population through developing innovative policies, products and services to meet their needs, bringing more growth and jobs. The concept has been emerging over the years, and recently gathered momentum with the European Commission's first paper on the topic. The population in the EU is ageing due to increasing ...

The 'silver economy' covers a host of different but interlinked strands; together these can improve the quality of life and inclusion in society and involvement in economic activity of the ageing population through developing innovative policies, products and services to meet their needs, bringing more growth and jobs. The concept has been emerging over the years, and recently gathered momentum with the European Commission's first paper on the topic. The population in the EU is ageing due to increasing longevity and low birth rates. The Commission's 2015 Ageing Report forecasts that the EU will move from having four working-age (15-64) people for every person aged over 65 years in 2013, to just two by 2060. Whilst population ageing brings challenges, it also presents opportunities. Euromonitor forecasts that the global spending power of those aged 60+ will reach US$15 trillion by 2020. Annual age related government expenditure on older people (currently nearly 20% of GDP in the EU) is forecast to rise by 1.8 percentage points by 2060. The silver economy concept seeks to look holistically at ageing and the opportunities it presents, bearing on the future direction of a broad range of polices such as those on the built environment, 50+ employment, life-long learning and preventative healthcare. Moreover, it seeks to embrace new technologies (e.g. health monitoring, smart homes, driverless vehicles, and care robots) and use them to lower the costs of ageing and improve the lives of older citizens whilst simultaneously helping to boost the economy.

Urban mobility: Shifting towards sustainable transport systems

15-09-2014

Many European cities are confronted by increasing levels of traffic congestion due to high dependence on cars for mobility purposes. The negative economic and environmental side-effects are considerable. Reducing congestion in urban areas and improving options for sustainable and integrated mobility options in cities has therefore become a growing concern for EU policy makers. This document examines the issues at stake.

A Rede Europeia de Ciclovias EuroVelo

15-08-2012

A presente atualização do relatório de 2009 avalia os desafios e oportunidades gerados pelo desenvolvimento de uma rede de ciclovias turísticas em toda a Europa. Centra-se na EuroVelo, uma rede de 14 percursos de longa distância geridos pela Federação Europeia de Ciclistas que está a ser desenvolvida em vários países por um amplo leque de parceiros. O presente estudo analisa o mercado do cicloturismo e apresenta um modelo de procura para a EuroVelo, avaliando também os recentes desenvolvimentos no ...

The Future of Sustainable Passenger Transport

15-01-2010

The reflections made in the Commission communication ‘A Sustainable Future for Transport’ are clearly based on knowledge of cutting-edge research. Major issues are presented and reflected upon. However, we would like to add the following issues, all being intensively discussed in the research community: the need for policies and practices to reduce the growth in travel, the need for policies and practices to address fastgrowing leisure-time travel, the need to consider public acceptance of policies ...

The Future of Transport in Urban Areas

16-11-2009

Urban mobility is analysed with a systems approach and from the point of view of functionality and service. The concepts and modes that are likely to predominate in 2050 are presented. Most of the innovation in urban mobility will come from the re-engineering of old concepts with the help of ICT: success or failure of implementation will depend on a package of ‘soft’ management measures that involve understanding stakeholder behaviour and managing the system in an integrated, efficient and dynamic ...

Urban mobility is analysed with a systems approach and from the point of view of functionality and service. The concepts and modes that are likely to predominate in 2050 are presented. Most of the innovation in urban mobility will come from the re-engineering of old concepts with the help of ICT: success or failure of implementation will depend on a package of ‘soft’ management measures that involve understanding stakeholder behaviour and managing the system in an integrated, efficient and dynamic (real-time) way, rather than on ‘hard’ physical infrastructure or new vehicles. New energy sources for vehicles are tactical changes; however, the physical or functional aspects of overcoming a certain distance at a certain speed will remain. The issues covered by this note were presented and discussed at the workshop on ‘The Future of Transport’ held at the European Parliament on 2 December 2009.
