Improving transport efficiency and reducing its negative impacts is a major political objective of the European Union.

Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) promise to play an important role towards this goal. CAVs are indeed expected to be safer and more energy efficient than existing conventional vehicles and to increase the road network capacity. 

The Joint Research Centre organized a dedicated co-creation workshop on 25 November 2021 to discuss with participants from Enlargement and Integration (E&I) countries about the possible expectations and concerns about Connected and Automated Mobility. The support from well renowned scientific experts in the field contributed to enrich the discussion.
