Transport and mobility – European institutions

We support the development of modern, efficient and integrated transport facilities in Europe.

Our team brings a high level of specialisation and experience in transport and mobility work for European institutions and bodies. We share a deep and genuine interest in contributing to designing policies and programmes that add value to the management of transport and mobility. We provide thorough monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment, which support the EU’s policy- making across all transport modes and areas of relevance.

Project highlights

Study on the maritime transport sector

The seafarer profession has been a focus of the Task Force on Maritime Employment and Competitiveness since its creation in 2011. Our study for the European Commission’s DG Mobility and Transport examined important policy achievements, gaps and shortcomings on social aspects of maritime transport.

As part of this work, our team identified topics and possible legislative and non-legislative initiatives to ensure the adequacy of seafarers’ working and living conditions, and enhance the attractiveness of the seafarer profession.

Assessing the trans-European transport network

An efficient transport network across the Europe is crucial for EU citizens and communities to fully benefit from an area without internal borders. We evaluated the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) regulation for the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport, covering all 27 EU Member States and in cooperation with non-EU countries.

Our team evaluated all transport modes of the network – ranging from railway to transport on inland waterways, on the sea, on the road and in the air. We showed that the TEN-T Regulation played a key role in EU Member States’ national transport policies and success and highlighted opportunities to increase climate-resilience and support digitalisation in line with the EU’s Green Deal.

Defining the future of rail research and innovation partnership

The European Union has ambitious goals for transport policy and addressing climate change. Under Horizon 2020, the EU had dedicated €6.3 billion to smart, green, and integrated transport systems, under its research and funding programme Horizon 2020, but was seeking research to support future programming.

To support the Commission’s investment coordination and planning of this activity, our team produced a study on its future rail research and innovation. This analysis provided reliable insights into the rail supply market and services, looking at economic, social, and technological developments of the past 10 years, whilst also reviewing competition from non-European companies.
