DELPHI: Revolutionizing Passenger and Freight Mobility through Integration – A new EU Project launched!

Thursday, July 6th, 2023

On the 4th and 5th of July, ALICE was delighted to participate the Kick Off Meeting of the DELPHI project (FeDerated nEtwork of pLatforms for Passenger and freigHt Intermodality) taking place in Athens, Greece. The consortium of 16 partners (+1 associated partner and 1 affiliated entity), from 8 EU and associated countries, will announce its ground-breaking initiative to address the growing challenges of passenger and freight mobility. Recognizing the complexity of stakeholder landscapes, fragmented transportation systems, and the need for secure data sharing, DELPHI will integrate sectors, harmonize data, and leverage advanced methodologies, to transform transportation systems for a sustainable future.

DELPHI’s aim can be summarized into the following five points, that embrace the overall spectrum of environmental, economic, societal and scientific impact:

  1. Make cities’ traffic flow better and reduce accidents, injuries, and traffic on roads.
  2. Speed up decision-making and implementation by 30% while improving how decisions are made.
  3. Develop five different business models that save money in data processing, transportation planning, and reduce emissions.
  4. Share DELPHI’s research findings and models within the stakeholders’ community for further study.
  5. Contribute to at least four transport and logistics initiatives pushing for the adoption of cross-stakeholder solutions in both the logistic chain, as well as the passenger mobility ecosystems.

Over the course of the project’s three-year lifetime, there will be four pilot demonstrations across the participating transportation networks located in Spain (Madrid), Greece (Athens and Mykonos), and Romania (Cluj-Napoca). These trials aim to facilitate effective preparation and seamless integration of systems, and will involve continuous monitoring of progress to ensure smooth functioning and interconnectivity.

ICCS (Institute of Communication and Computer Systems), an ALICE member and chair of ALICE TG3, is proud to be coordinating a project which brings together policy-makers, transport companies, academia, and civil society to shape a future where integrated mobility is the norm!
