Few Words About Us
Smarter Mobility Solutions Ltd.(SMS) is an UK SME which has been established
in October 2016, operating at European level since 2019.
The SMS ltd provides smarter and more efficient solutions to a low carbon transport, considering that today’s approach to mobility in cities is contributing to congestion, pollutants and a rising impact to climate change.
The main activity is on decarbonising mobility and transport, targeting aviation, and waterborne alongside road transport and rail . The Company is linking renewable energy solutions to transport sector, is developing different integrated mobility scenarios, while exploring local based solutions, mainly innovations, to be scaled up to large scaled demonstrators, and further test market responsiveness.
From mobility to climate impact
Smarter Mobility Solutions Ltd is teaming up with several actors in UK, Europe, US and ASEAN countries, due to its members being involved in several programmes and projects in those regions. The involvement with COP26/Innovation Zones has facilitated engagement with several companies acting world-wide, as well as national governments in search for advice on how to reduce climate impact while growing within environmental limits. The approach to policy-research-practice, while advising on strategies, plans and projects within a structured framework has proved to be a good pathway towards prioritising investment in a low carbon to NetZero route.
The Company was founded by Dr Delia Dimitriu, who is a world-renowned expert on climate impact assessment, tackling mitigation and adaptation related to cities and transport.
She is involved in developing strategies and shaping programmes and projects at local, regional and international level. Being Romanian by birth, Delia is very interested to work with colleagues from
Central Eastern Europe, due to her roots and strong network developed during the last 20 years since her move to UK, to become an academic at Manchester metropolitan University. Her engagement with Connected Places Catapult,
as an Associate, has contributed to the understanding of innovation actions and their associated challenges to market and job creation.
Delia was part of a team that was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for its work on climate change and is a member of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report; WG3- Mitigation, Chapter 8-Transport (2010-2014).
In December 2022 she received The national order "Cultural Merit" in the rank of Knight for sustained activity and achievements in the field of science and technology.
Exploring Local based solutions to decarbonize smart cities and mobility
SMS is proving support for a better, common approach to making mobility in smart cities a reality. Our focus is on CE European cities, due to the potential the region is offering in terms of growth, knowledge transfer and approach to decarbonisation.
- Develop a concept Towards Smart Zero Carbon Cities- a more inclusive, sustainable approach, including opportunities for growth and green jobs.
- Work with European colleagues involved in projects that aim to deploy integrated energy, mobility and ICT solutions
- Develop an in-depth knowledge transfer about setting up of smart city business models and user-centric innovation in order to contribute to positive societal dynamics.
- Exploring solutions on renewable energy sources is our main priority.
By fostering international collaboration between industry and technology owners, involving cities as end-users, SMS Ltd. is developing affordable, integrated and smart mobility solutions, with a clear market potential.
Reducing the environmental footprint, with focus on carbon footprint is our main objective.
We are finding solutions to the rapidly urbanizing world cities need to become smarter, while responding to citizens need to improve local air quality and overall their quality of life.
We are working together with our partners to support growth and the transition to a smart, sustainable Europe.
The involvement in Decarbonising Danube Delta initiative and working with several partners along the Danube river basin proved a well-balanced plan to identify local needs and the role of Living Labs to support Governance through innovation actions. The output of this endeavour has lead to several proposals under development at present.
