3rd MODUS Workshop

3rd Modus workshop to be held 24-25 October 2022, Paris, UIC HQ

The SESAR European ‘Modus’ project has been exploring the future landscape of air-rail multimodal travel with a range of future scenarios during the last two years and it is now glad to share the result of this multidisciplinary group of experts from air, rail and academia.

Modus is a SESAR/H2020 research project launched in 2020. Against a background of increasing environmental awareness, regulatory measures, capacity shortages across different modes and the need for a more seamless and hassle-free passenger experience, the future evolution of European travellers’ demand for mobility is still unknown, along with its potential impact on the European transport system. The optimisation and alignment of intermodal transport is therefore of utmost importance for the overall performance of the (future) European transport system, especially when it comes to providing seamless journeys for passengers and mitigating capacity constraints.

The main objective of the project is to analyse the performance of the overall transport system by considering the entire door-to-door journey holistically and assessing the role of air transport with an integrated, intermodal approach. For this purpose, Modus identifies and assesses (future) drivers of passenger mobility demand and supply in terms of their impact on passenger mode choice. This enables the development of multiple scenarios for future mobility paths, taking account of aspects such as new regulatory frameworks to meet new environmental standards or new transport operator business models, covering a timeframe of 2040 onwards.

Registration is free but places are limited, so please book your place as soon as possible.
