Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
Juncker’s nomination was not a sudden, not an unexpected and not even a distinct event. Neither does it spell

Future public transport journey 2030
21 March 2013
Recent output from an EU research study - an animation of the future public transport journey 2030.
The Bartlett School of Planning launched an animated view of the potential 'seamless public transport journey in 2030', as part of the SYNAPTIC project (Synergy of New Advanced Public Transport Solutions Improving Connectivity in North-West Europe), funded by EU INTERREG IVB.
Focused on the needs of the traveller, SYNAPTIC seeks to improve the overall door-to-door journey so that journeys become coordinated, integrated and easy to use, with points of friction between different stages removed or reduced.
The project brings together 52 partner organisations from 8 countries in North West Europe.
