BME participates in PLOTO project

One of the research groups at the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering leads tasks in a special Horizon Europe project.

BME participates in the PLOTO Project, co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe Innovation Actions under grant agreement No.101069941, with a duration of three years (September 2022 – February 2026).

PLOTO aims at increasing the resilience of the Inland WaterWays (IWW) infrastructures and the connected land infrastructures, thus ensuring reliable network availability under unfavorable conditions, such as extreme weather, accidents and other kinds of hazards.

PLOTO includes 3 pilot sites in Belgium, Hungary, Romania and 20 partners from 8 European countries that will work together for the next 42 months.

The BME Transport Systems and Mobility Services Research Group at the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering leads tasks regarding the analysis of end-user needs and determination of the IWW Resilience Framework. Furthermore, BME supports the Hungarian case-study in the Freeport of Budapest where the methods and systems developed during the project will be tested. BME and the Hungarian partners have recently organized the first plenary meeting at our university where the partners met personally and discussed the project issues to be tackled.

The PLOTO project held its plenary session at BME in March 2023
