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.
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
