    The MAGnUM project aims to (i) create a consistent set of interrelated dynamic and multimodal traffic models able to capture driver behaviours at the different urban scales and (ii) apply this variety of models to design efficient and green traffic management strategies. Traffic flow dynamics is well reproduced at a local urban scale by the kinematic wave model and its numerous extensions. Even if this model is parsimonious compared to other modelling approaches, it can hardly be applied at larger urban scales for traffic control applications. Very recently, a new modelling approach has been proposed to represent congestion dynamics at large scales. It relates the total travel production to the vehicle accumulation in a traffic network with for now a restrictive condition about network homogeneity. This approach is very promising for designing new traffic management systems but heterogeneous situations should be handled by properly connecting with the local scale to account for the effects of the local distributions and variations of the driver behaviour (demand) and the network structure (supply). Investigating these relationships and proposing a full set of consistent models representing traffic dynamics at several relevant scales (successive spatial and temporal integration) is very challenging with high potential gains for traffic control applications. This is the primary goal of MAGnUM and will be achieved by mixing analytical investigations on idealized but insightful test cases with explanatory approaches based on data gained from dynamic simulations or serious game sessions on more realistic and complex cases. The second goal of the project concerns the design of innovative traffic management strategies at multiple urban scales. Breakthroughs will be achieved by considering multiple and competitive objectives when optimizing with a tight focus on environment issues and multi-modality.

    Roads are the arteries through which economic and social development pulses, and are one of the most important public services in the world. However, roadway assets are currently made of virgin and fossil-based materials and processes. Additionally, roads are subjected to ever-heavier traffic loads, relentless traffic concentrations and climate change, which will result in much quicker infrastructure failures, and in turn costs. Therefore, the aim of this DN is to create Circular and Connected Pavements for Carbon-Neutral and Digital Roads (CIRCOPAV) through a world-class international, inter-disciplinary and inter-sectorial training programme for ten doctoral candidates. CIRCOPAV DN will complete two key scientific objectives: 1) road network digitalisation to create smart and automated pavements, and 2) pavement sustainability to mitigate carbon footprint and ensure climate change resilience. These targets will be achieved through a consortium of 8 universities, 8 industrial companies and a road administration, across 8 countries and 3 continents, and combine the transportation, construction engineering, sustainability, electronics and data science sectors to create a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative leaders for the next generation of roads. Additionally, these goals fall directly in line with Horizon Europe’s goal to transition to a green and digital economy, the Green Charter and two Horizon Europe Missions. They will be achieved via intelligent and connected (e.g. sensors and IoT networks) and sustainable technologies (e.g. low emission materials and manufacturing and climate change resilient designs and materials). As a result, guidelines and prototypes will be developed up to TRL 6 and designed for exploitation in Europe and developing countries, and will be supported by open-days, open-access publications and seven international external advisory and dissemination entities.

    SHAPE-ENERGY “Social Sciences and Humanities for Advancing Policy in European Energy” will develop Europe’s expertise in using and applying energy-SSH to accelerate the delivery of Europe’s Energy Union Strategy. Our consortium brings together 7 leading academic partners and 6 highly respected policy, industry and communications practitioners from across the Energy, Social Sciences and Humanities (energy-SSH) research field, to create an innovative and inclusive Platform. Our partners are involved in numerous European energy projects, have extensive, relevant networks in the energy domain, and represent exceptional coverage across SSH disciplines across Europe. These enable us to maximise the impact of our Platform delivery within an intensive 2-year project. SHAPE-ENERGY brings together those who ‘demand’ energy-SSH research and those who ‘supply’ that research to collaborate in ‘shaping’ Europe’s energy future. A key deliverable will be a “2020-2030 research and innovation agenda” to underpin post-Horizon 2020 energy-focused work programmes. It will highlight how energy-SSH can be better embedded into energy policymaking, innovation and research in the next decade. Our SHAPE-ENERGY Platform activities will involve >12,114 stakeholders and begin with scoping activities including: an academic workshop, call for evidence, interviews with business leaders and NGOs, online citizen debates and multi-level policy meetings. We will build on our scoping to then deliver: 18 multi-stakeholder workshops in cities across Europe, an Early Stage Researcher programme, Horizon 2020 sandpits, interdisciplinary think pieces, a research design challenge, and a pan-European conference. Our expert consortium will bring their considerable expertise to overcome difficulties in promoting interdisciplinary and cross-sector working, and reach out to new parts of Europe to create an inclusive, dynamic and open Platform. SHAPE-ENERGY will drive forward Europe’s low carbon energy future.

    HEART is a multifunctional retrofit toolkit within which different subcomponents – ICT, BEMS, HVAC, BIPV and Envelope Technologies – cooperate synergistically to transform an existing building into a Smart Building. Based on a whole-building performance approach, the toolkit is conceived to achieve extremely high levels of energy efficiency in the existing residential building stock, with particular reference to Central and Southern Europe, where climate change and energy transition have boosted electricity consumption peaks both during summer and winter seasons. However, it may be extended equally well to new residential and commercial buildings. The system’s central core consists of a cloud-based computing platform which concentrates managing and operational logic to support decision-making in planning and construction as well as energy performance enhancement and monitoring during operation. The Toolkit provide energy saving, energy fluxes optimization, data exchange, stakeholders’ active involvement and Smart Grid interactivity. Interoperable building technologies and installations are also integrated in the toolkit: envelope solutions (thermal insulation and windows) ensure a reduction of thermal loads, while technical systems (BEMS, BIPV, heat pump, fan-coils, power controller, storage systems) ensure energy efficiency and RES exploitation. All technical systems and building components are structured as a function of their affordability, interactivity, practicality, reduced installation time and non-invasiveness. HEART's contribution to the improvement of the building renovation process can be briefly summarized through its main features: • Retrofit planning and implementation optimization; • Reduction of total energy consumption; • Reinforcement of RES exploitation; • Rationalization of energy flows inside the building and between building and Smart Grids; • Active involvement of stakeholders; • Support to energy financing.
