Transport Industry Platforms

The DOMUS project is supported by EUCAR. EUCAR’s aim is: “To Strengthen the Competitiveness of the European Automotive Manufacturers through Strategic Collaborative Research & Innovation”. More information on the project can be found in the EUCAR project book of 2019 on page 98.

ERTRAC is the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council. It is the European technology platform which brings together road transport stakeholders to develop a common vision for road transport research in Europe.
The European Green Vehicles Initiative is a contractual public-private partnership dedicated to delivering green vehicles and mobility system solutions which match the major societal, environmental and economic challenges ahead. With a focus on the energy efficiency of vehicles and alternative powertrains, the EGVI PPP aims at accelerating research, development and demonstration of technologies allowing the efficient use of clean energies in road transport.


Founded in 2002, EARPA is the association of automotive R&D organisations. It brings together the most prominent independent R&D providers in the automotive sector throughout Europe. Its membership counts at present 53 members ranging from large and small commercial organisations to national institutes and universities.

QUalifying and Implementing a user-centric designed and EfficienT electric vehicle

QUIET aims at developing an improved and energy efficient electric vehicle with increased driving range under real-world driving conditions. This is achieved by exploiting the synergies of a technology portfolio in the areas of:

  • user centric design with enhanced passenger comfort and safety
  • lightweight materials with enhanced thermal insulation properties and optimised vehicle energy management
Optimised energy management and use (OPTEMUS) represents an opportunity for overcoming one of the biggest barriers towards large scale adoption of electric and plug-in hybrid cars: range limitation due to limited storage capacity of electric batteries.
