The SCORE project investigated the future development paths of the European transport manufacturing industries. Its aim was to provide knowledge for companies and policy makers to anticipate the challenges and conclude on effective push more pulled measures.
SCORE combined the efforts of 8 partners. The project explored how progress in research and new technologies in combination with future demand changes, forthcoming geopolitical and geo-economic developments, will affect the position of the European transport manufacturing industry. The analyses focused on the four major transport manufacturing industry’s segments: automotive, aeronautical, shipbuilding and rail rolling stock. The predictions were made for both carriage of passengers and freight up to 2030 (and partly to 2050).
The findings were summarised and visualised in a so called scoreboard (hence, SCORE) that indicated in an easily accessible way the current and future competitive position of the European transport manufacturing industries compared to their global competitors.
