Cerema is the major public agency for developing and capitalising on public expertise in the fields of planning, regional cohesion, and ecological and energy transition. It offers unique state-of-the-art high-level expertise in the areas of mobility, land-based and maritime transport infrastructure, urban planning and construction, resource conservation, risk prevention and coastal erosion, road and maritime safety, and the ability to integrate these different skills into developing territorial projects, whether at national, European or international levels.

Comprising 2,500 agents in 23 sites in mainland France and the overseas regions. In the field of Mobility Cerema is structured along 5 major axes:

  • Public spaces and urban roads: A multidisciplinary and integrative approach to sharing public spaces and urban roads, seeking to reconcile the full range of uses: promotion of, and development for, active transport (cycling and walking).
  • Understanding, modelling and assessing mobility to help define mobility policies: mobility observation and analysis (quantitative and qualitative surveys, big data, analysis tools, digital transition), modelling travel and dynamic traffic simulations.
  • Mobility services and policies: Organising movement of people and goods to serve regional projects. Regional organisation of movement of people (local strategies and associated planning, inclusive mobility, managing demand), provision of mobility services (project start-up support, pilot schemes, assessment, contracts, intermodality, MaaS).
  • Intelligent transport systems, traffic and regulation: Supporting the development of innovative intelligent transport systems, new technologies, and data sources to serve mobility.
  • Travel safety: A multidisciplinary approach to the safety and behaviour of both users and infrastructure, to reduce traffic-related deaths

Cerema also partners with the Eurometropole of Strasbourg, GART and UTP, to organise the Strasbourg Days, an opportunity to think and exchange ideas based on European and international examples, in order to compare and understand the challenges and levers for action, and thus act effectively to promote a sustainable mobility policy.

Cerema is/was involved in the following EU projects: MMUST (Multimodal Model and Scenarios for Cross-Border Mobility), SUMPS-UP, Linking Alps, InDiD (Digital Infrastructure of the Future) & SAM (Safety and Acceptance of autonomous Mobility and driving).
