Discussed were matters related to transport in its broadest sense, including transport management in a globalized world, green transport, transport safety, as well as topics related to vehicle design and construction, advanced materials and technologies. 

Prof. Robert Stanisławski and prof. Zbigniew Wiśniewski, OiZ Faculty, and prof. Damian Batory, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, introduced 3 project proposals for the Horizon Europe scheme, on which the ECIU section has already begun working.
The meeting's participants were encouraged to contribute to the research that has been undertaken thus far and to bring forward new proposals that align with the main thematic scope of the 'Transport & Mobility' research group.

The members of the group believe that the opportunity for rapid and dynamic development of its activities should be seized upon by drawing on the knowledge and experience of its members, including those from other ECIU universities. The observed activity and involvement of the participants in collaborative interfaculty projects demonstrates it best.

The European Consortium of Innovative Universities ECIU, which the Lodz University of Technology forms along with 12 other universities, is an internationally renowned network for innovative education, research, knowledge exchange, and management in higher education. Its associated universities cooperate with regions, cities, and businesses to solve real-world problems that require a specifically European yet multidisciplinary approach.

By joining the ECIU, researchers at Lodz University of Technology have joined in the efforts in one of the five research areas pursued by the consortium. They are: 
•    Resilient Communities, 
•    Circural Economy, 
•    Energy and Sustainability, 
•    Transport and Mobility,
•    Citizen Science.
