The project will study and analyze large data in the European transport domain, especially with regards to five transport dimensions: mode, sector, technology, policy and evaluation. LeMO will achieve this by conducting a number of case studies to provide recommendations on the prerequisites for effective data transport implementation. The project is coordinated by Vestlandsforsking in Sogndal.

The project is the initiative of 16 partners in 13 EU and associated countries (IL, NO). The main objective is to support the spread of best practices and innovation in the determination (production, pretreatment) of biomass to BBI (Bio-Based Industry). In particular, ENABLING aims to create appropriate conditions for the development of effective biomass for securities (biobased products and processes). Vestlandsforsking in Sogndal is one of the 16 partners in the consortium led by the ITABIA-Italian Biomass Association.
