The Car and Mobility Observatory of Luiss Business School, managed by prof. Fabio Orecchini of Guglielmo Marconi University and by prof. Luca Pirolo of Luiss University, has recently presented its activities, research lines and the Roadmap 2023, an opportunity in which UNRAE, National Union of Foreign Motor Vehicles Representative, has shown market data and prospects.
The research activity concerns also the identification of suitable energy strategies for the car and the mobility in Italy and in Europe, and has fixed its pillars in sustainability, energy safety, industrial development, socio-economic growth and market.
The Observatory’s research has unveiled what the Innovation words in the car and mobility sector are: CO2, Battery, Safety, Hybrid, EV, Mobility and Sustainability. CO2 turned out to be by far the most used term, with 41% of the contributions concerning thirty key words used for the analysis The most interesting technologies are related to electrification (Battery 13%, Hybrid 10% and EV 10%), but there is great interest also in safety (Safety 12%).
“The results of the first research about innovation words”, adds the professor, indicate the great interest by industrial players and public in the environmental and technological innovation issues. The fact that, against 2,703 tweets by automotive companies, more than 55,600 responses and retweets about innovation key terms have been generated demonstrates how these words are the core of the debate and must be attentively considered not only in commercial and marketing actions but also in policies and applicative actions deployed by administrative and government bodies”, Luca Pirolo explained.
“The establishment of a university study and research centre dedicated to car and mobility represents an important opportunity for the whole economic and industrial system connected with the sector”, commented professor Fabio Orecchini. “The Observatory relies on precious multidisciplinary competences to support the transformation in course in industry and in the role of the public administration in the mobility sector”.
