Innovation is essential to drive the integration of Europe’s transport systems and reach a single multimodal European transport network. However, several barriers still hinder the transition from research and innovation (R&I) to deployment. We have therefore initiated the PilotAction IMIS “Towards a single and innovative European transport system: implementation of multimodal innovative solutions” to investigate ways to speed up the market uptake of R&I results in areas vital for a fully integrated transport system: Multimodal hubs for freight and logistics. Three pilot cases have been studied and demonstrated if and how innovation implementation can speed up: Mainhub Antwerp (Belgium), Lanfer terminal Hamm (Germany) and Quadrante Europa Verona (Italy).The findings will be presented and discussed at the final conference.
