sustainable transport and low-carbon strategies

The Resolvo group supports public administrations in the analysis, definition and evaluation of policies and programmes, in areas such as sustainable transport and logistics.

Transport is a key topic in 2014-20 cooperation programmes, covered by two thematic objectives in the ERDF regulation 2014-2020 (Article 5):
Thematic objective 4 – Investment priority (e):
“Supporting the shift towards a low-carbon economy in all sectors by promoting low-carbon strategies for all types of territories, in particular for urban areas, including the promotion of sustainable multimodal urban mobility and mitigation-relevant adaptation measures”
Thematic objective 7:
“Promoting sustainable transport and removing bottlenecks in key network infrastructures”

Experience

Resolvo staff have experience in the design of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Traffic Management services including freight distribution. Furthermore, Resolvo has expertise in electric mobility and sustainable transport.

Resolvo’s staff have contributed to defining innovative ICT tools to develop an agency for flexible transport and logistics services in urban and rural areas (Agata project – INTERREG IIIB MEDOCC).

Resolvo was a partner in the following relevant project:

– TiPS&Info4BRT (Tuscan ERDF) which specifies, develops and validates two modules for improving bus priority at junctions, managing road information work-flow and estimating the impact of predictable accidents on bus transit lines.

Resolvo supported the lead partner of projects such as:

– CLEAN (ERA-NET scheme ERNEST) dealing with electric mobility to analyse the impact of tourist behaviour in urban areas.

Resolvo’s staff have collaborated on several publications focusing on the theme, among them:

  • Frosini, J. Huntingford, (2006) “MEROPE. Innovative mobility and logistics services. IT tools to enhance sustainability and competitiveness of urban and metropolitan areas.” in “Ricerca Trasferimento Innovazione” Tuscany Region, Florence.
