A European Partnership for Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility

Already today, road vehicles provide advanced assistance functionalities and support the driving task in dangerous situations. In the future, we expect systems with significantly reduced reaction times and vehicle control for extended periods. Combining Connectivity, Cooperative systems and Automation for Mobility (CCAM) will bring us closer to Vision Zero. Through digitalisation, CCAM will bring mobility to a new level, improving traffic management, reducing congestion, and contributing to protecting the environment.

For this vision, Europe takes a leading role to guide the transformation, creating more sustainable solutions while strengthening European competitiveness. With this ambition, the CCAM Partnership aligns all relevant stakeholders, planning large-scale demonstrations, research and innovation actions for vehicle technologies, infrastructure support, and facilitating end-user adoption. The partners develop and implement a shared, coherent and long-term R&I agenda with the joint vision: “European leadership in safe and sustainable road transport through automation”.

EUCAR, together with the European Commission and all stakeholders, created this new European Partnership in the next European framework programme. On 14 April 2021, the CCAM Partnership Association successfully organised the first General Assembly with more than 140 members.

The CCAM Partnership will have a central role in the 3rd European Conference on Connected and Automated Driving (EUCAD 2021), from 20 to 22 April 2021. The conference will highlight the Partnership’s vision and objectives with many EUCAR members speaking on the most recent technological developments and policies in the area of CCAM.
