The LeMO project's interim review in Brussels

On Wednesday, 26 June 2019 the LeMO project team travelled to Brussels for the 1st interim period review meeting by the INEA & EC. The team presented in detail the work done so far, demonstrating results, facts and achievements as these have occurred during the first 18 months lifetime.


The agenda for the day was full as a broad range of topics needed to be covered in the space of six hours. The Coordinator and Work Package Leaders gave concise presentations on key achievements made, potential challenges faced and next steps of each work package. The Project Officer provided comments after each presentation. Once the series of presentations was over the progress and main results had been discussed.

The first impression of the team after the review completion was that of satisfaction and recognition of the excellent work done so far, of course with some constructive feedback. The commitment of the different partners all along the project half-life, but also during the review preparation was excellent, leading to important achievements, and a comprehensive defense of them in front of the Project Officer. It was very successful meeting and a good opportunity to get feedback from the project officer.

It is with enthusiasm that the Partners have embarked on the second half of the project and are now busy preparing for the trend analysis and road-mapping set to start this summer.

LeMO members have attended our sister project NOESIS meeting

As a first action of cooperation between our projects, LeMO coordinator, Rajendra Akerkar, and team member, Zuzana Nordeng, attended NOESIS project meeting that took place in Stockholm on the 22nd and 23rd of March. The meeting gave us a chance to closely look at what we are doing and thus we discussed potential synergies in more detail.

In order to build the foundations for the development of a database of use cases for Big Data applications and services in the field of transport and logistics, NOESIS is researching how Big Data is used to tackle various transport challenges and exploring how transport datasets are collected and handled.

Transport stakeholders are interested in the case studies that LeMO will undertake

The LeMO project has established a good collaboration with the Big Data Europe (BDE) project. The LeMO project participated in the BDE SC4 workshop in September 2017 and has also contributed a blog entry on the future of big data in transport to the BDE website.

On 2nd February 2018, the Big Data Europe (BDE) societal challenge on transport (SC4) hosted its third and final hangout. Entitled “The Way Forward for Big Data in Transport”, the hangout presented the results of the work done in the BDE project and discussed future of big data in the transport sector. We thank the BDE project for hosting us during SC4 Webinar and publishing LeMO presentation on their blog. The LeMO presentation at the webinar focused on the key objectives and activities of the LeMO project. 

After the LeMO presentation, webinar participants were asked to cast their vote in the poll,  concerning the LeMO case studies. Most of the BDE followers present at the webinar would like to learn more about the open data and transport case study that LeMO will undertake.
