The goal: innovating street design in Europe and beyond.
The EU-funded project MORE, funded by European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, officially kicked off in Brussels at the end of 2018. This ambitious project will develop and implement innovations for the design of urban corridor roads. MORE will also deliver tools assisting cities in their road space design process.
The need for the MORE project is grounded in the increasing pressure on urban corridor roads. The growth of the population and economy has resulted in a steep increase of mobility levels. Meanwhile, the demand for transport has become increasingly diverse. These factors put the reliability of the network at risk, both
for passengers and freight. The need for capacity and reliability call for a more efficient use of road space.
To find innovative solutions to these challenges, MORE will draw on a wide range of multidisciplinary expertise. The 18-partner consortium is composed by international organisations, transport and planning consultancies, cities and associations representing different road users. The project is led by the University College London and will run until 2021.
At the kick-off meeting, partners expressed excitement about the project and its ambition to develop new tools and concepts.
