The European Commission has started its work on a communication on the creation of a common European mobility data space (EMDS), and has published a call for evidence, which will be open for feedback until 7 December 2022. The EMDS aims to facilitate data access, pooling and sharing for more efficient, safe, sustainable and resilient transport. It builds on initiatives and applications related to transport data and will be supported by initiatives to boost interoperability, security, and the availability and provision of data and services.

The Communication on the EMDS will describe the main features, supporting measures, objectives and milestones for the common European mobility data space, as well as a governance system. This Communication will complement ongoing work to develop common European data spaces in strategic economic sectors and domains of public interest, and will take into consideration the horizontal governance set out in the European data strategy of February 2020.
