FP7 & H2020 Projects

  • Program: BEWARE FELLOWSHIPS Academia

  • Project acronym: PARROT

  • Project title: Planning Adapter performing ReRouting and Optimization of Timing

  • Duration: 10/2014 - 09/2017

  • Coordinator: Martine Labbé (ULB)

  • Other partners: INFRABEL (Belgique).

  • Abstract: The Belgian railway company needs a new tool for the trains which have to be rescheduled when the company must do some maintenance operations on the network. The difficulties are the number of constraints, the size of the network, the quantity of trains and many other features related to the Belgian railway system. These difficulties imply that some choices have to be made to balance the quantity of work feasible in the 3 years project. After developing an interface between the INFRABEL database and the framework used in this project, a first model (MIP) will be implemented and then tested.

Collaborations in European Programs, except FP7 & H2020

  • Program: JPI Urban Europe

  • Project acronym: e4-share

  • Project title: Models for Ecological, Economical, Efficient, Electric Car-Sharing

  • Duration: 11/2014 - 10/2017

  • Coordinator: Markus Leitner (U. Vienna, Austria)

  • Other partners:

    • AIT, Vienna, Austria

    • GOM, Université Libre de Bruxelles (Inria/INOCS)

    • Department of Electrical, Electronics and information Engineering, Alma Mater University of Bologna, Italy

    • iC consulenten Ziviltechniker GesmbH, Vienna, Austria

  • Abstract: Car-sharing systems and the usage of electric cars become increasingly popular among urban citizens. Thus, providing vast opportunities to meet today�s challenges in terms of environmental objectives, sustainability and living quality. Our society needs to manage a transformation process that ultimately shall lead to fewer emissions and less energy consumption while increasing the quality of public space available.

    In e4-share, the team will lay the foundations for efficient and economically viable electric car-sharing systems by studying and solving the optimization problems arising in their design and operations. A main goal is to derive generic methods and strategies for optimized planning and operating in particular for flexible variants which best meet preferences of customers but impose nontrivial challenges to operators. This project will develop novel, exact and heuristic, numerical methods for finding suitable solutions to the optimization problems arising at the various planning levels as well as new, innovative approaches considering these levels simultaneously.

    The project e4-share (Models for Ecological, Economical, Efficient, Electric Car-Sharing) runs from October 2014 to October 2017 and is funded by FFG, INNOVIRIS and MIUR via Joint Programme Initiative Urban Europe. The project comprises an interdisciplinary team of five partners from Austria, Belgium and Italy.
