The Coordination and Support Action “Scoreboard of Competitiveness of the European Transport Manufacturing Industry” (SCORE) explores, assesses and forecasts how progress in research and development, new innovative technologies and future demand changes in combination with forthcoming geopolitical and geo-economic developments affect the global competitive position of the European transport manufacturing industry.
The analysis focuses on the four major transport manufacturing industry's segments automotive, aeronautical, ship-building and rail rolling stock, all for carriage of passengers and freight, and has a time horizon up to 2030 (and partly to 2050).
The findings are summarized and visualized in a so called scoreboard that indicates in an easily accessible way the current and future competitive position of the European transport manufacturing industries compared to their global rivals.
Subsequently, orientations for adjustments, changes and expansions of corporate innovation, production and investment strategies, EU industrial competitiveness policies and other measures are provided.
For verification and validation, the SCORE project seeks extensively the assessments from an Industrial Advisory Board at various workshops.
The SCORE project consists of eight partners from seven countries in its core consortium. In Order to keep the project lean, agile and productive, dedicated companies, think tanks and research institutes have been involved.
As many of them are key members of European associations and technology platforms working on transport and manufacturing issues or the relevant societal drivers, the recommendations by the project are based on thorough technical and economic assessments as well as industrial roadmaps and they can easily be leveraged.
Documents and dissemination materials produced within the project will be published in this section of this website as soon as available.

Status Quo - Demand Aspects This report investigates current customers’ requirements and factors influencing the demand for the different transport manufacturing industries and defines a suitable market segmentation of the different transport modes considered. It evaluates the Push and Pull factors for industry as derived from comprehensive demand side analysis.13,208 kB, pdf-File
Future - Demand Aspects This report investigates relevant trends and future perspectives that will effect supply and demand of transport manufacturing industry and analyses their impact on setup and dynamics of value chain, innovation capacities and on demand side and derive upcoming challenges and opportunities. Likely market developments of present and upcoming markets are forecasted and future customer requirements and mobility demands including aspects like demographic trends, GHD reduction targets etc. affecting business models of the addressed industries are analysed.3,618 kB, pdf-File
Status Quo - Economic Aspects The main objective of this document is to complement the results on supply and demand side with an economic analyses that provides the global perspective.18,009 kB, pdf-File
Risk Analysis This report builds on themes identified in risk literature, previous SCORE deliverables and inputs and insights from the project’s Industry Advisory Board, to assess future global competition arenas between European and other global rivals within Aeronautics, Automotive, Rail/rolling stock, and Shipbuilding manufacturing, and to identify the main risk factors that may challenge European competitiveness.The main input for this assessment is formed by an expert survey among 69 high-level experts from the four main European transport manufacturing segments.4,001 kB, pdf-File
Framework perspectives The document analyses societal goals and strategic objectives by European initiatives, before focussing on the identification of industrial needs to further secure the competitiveness of European manufacturers. This was done through a thorough expert analysis with the main stakeholders in the European transport manufacturing industry (in close collaboration with the risk analysis). Eventually, the overall objective is to derive gaps that need to be addressed through new political frameworks.910 kB, pdf-File
Policy Recommendations To assess the competitiveness of the European Transport Manufacturing Industry, various essential areas were identified during the course of this project. In the following a short summary of the areas focusing on the conclusions is given, details can be looked up in the respective SCORE deliverable documents.841 kB, pdf-File
