Introduction

Mobility will always be a central need for humans and our societies are dependent on flexible and smart solutions that enables us to develop and prosper.

Our vision is a society in the near future or not too far away in which the transport sector is an active player in reaching the goals of social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Our contribution towards reaching this vision is through long-term multidisciplinary research cooperation to tackle the global environmental transport challenges by means of radically new and holistic technical solutions. Our approach is that seamless transport services, infrastructure, novel vehicle concepts, business models and policies, all need to be tuned and optimized in chorus.

Integrated Transport Research Lab is a multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder arena that assembles experts in (i) novel technical transport solutions with high impact/potential; (ii) todays transport system areas to improve and (iii) implementation barriers and mechanisms.

Through research we will identify numerous possibilities and new ideas for mobility and transport. ITRL will most likely also come across barriers that we can not solve without the help from others. It will be of great service to other actors to have obstacles identified together with suggested changes or even proposed solutions.

When ideas that were planted in our research projects, workshops or at our demonstration-sites are used and become real parts of our societies we have reached our goal.
