The IP4MaaS project aims to advance the uptake of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) schemes by analysing and testing technologies developed under the Innovation Programme 4 (IP4) of the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking. By doing this, IP4MaaS contributes to the digital ecosystem for door-to door travel in a seamless, multimodal and European-wide transport system based on the railways.
The main goal of IP4MaaS is to design, execute, monitor and assess the Shift2Rail IP4 demonstrations by liaising between Shift2Rail Call for Members (CFM) projects, Transport Service providers, and users.
The project aims to execute co-creation activities with all partners in IP4MaaS and beyond, coordinate and assess the demonstration activities with the goal of delivering successful demonstrations and a solid demonstration execution scheme that can be utilised by other projects. IP4MaaS will conduct six demonstrations across Europe (Barcelona, Athens, Warsaw, Osijek, Liberec, and Padua) testing IP4 technologies in different contexts.
IP4MaaS can be considered as the successor of another Shift2Rail project, Shift2MaaS. Just like IP4MaaS, this project is also coordinated by UITP and was launched early 2019 to support the uptake and integration of IP4 technologies within a MaaS context.
