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.

4th LeMO Project Meeting held in The Netherlands on 26-27 November 2018

The forth LeMO project meeting was held in Zoetermeer (The Netherlands) on the 26th and 27th of November 2019. All partners gathered to discuss the advancement of the project and the tasks ahead.

The day started with a welcome note by the host (Panteia) and a presentation of the project progress so far by the coordinator (WNRI) and continued with a presentation of the main WP2 achievements by respective Task leaders.

The coordinator of the NOESIS project (Ortelio) also attended the meeting and presented the NOESIS project and its ongoing work on Big Data in Transport Library. Opportunities for collaboration between the two projects were further discussed.

After the end of a very fruitful discussion on dissemination activities LeMO consortium discussed the results of the first year dissemination and the plan for next steps. First LeMO webinar planned for February 2019. The partners discussed the tentative agenda for the webinar and agreed on inviting NOESIS and two Case Study providers for short presentation in the webinar.

The second day of the meeting focused on a discussion on case studies in WP3. All partners discussed the progress of the running work package (WP3) and presented their plan for the case studies and related interviews that are about to begin in January 2019.

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.

Successfully completed two-days project board workshop in Frankfurt

We have successfully completed the first two-days LeMO project board workshop on “Setting the Stage on Big Data in Transportation” at Frankfurt Big Data Lab from 22-23 January 2018.

Transport researchers and policy makers today face several challenges as they work to build efficient, safe, and sustainable transportation systems. From rising congestion to growing demand for public transit, the travel behaviour and transportation preferences of  city dwellers are changing fast.

Leveraging Big Data to Manage Transport Operations (LeMO) project addresses these issues by investigating the implications of the utilisation of Big Data to enhance the economic sustainability and competitiveness of European transport sector.  The project studies and analyses Big Data in the European transport domain in particular with respect to five transport dimensions: mode, sector, technology, policy and evaluation. LeMO will accomplish this by conducting a series of case studies, in order to provide recommendations on the prerequisites of effective big data implementation in the transport field.
