About MASAI Project
MASAI IS A THREE-YEAR (2015-2018) R&D PROJECT ABOUT SEAMLESS TRAVEL IN THE HORIZON 2020 EU PROGRAMME. The vision of MASAI is to satisfy the overall requirements for services dreamed by each mobile citizen: a tailor-made aggregation of features – a digital concierge in everyone’s pocket. MASAI approaches this aim by building up a community of stakeholders, progressively contributing with adequate evolutions and improvements for the development of the core elements of a digital concierge, allowed by an ever-accelerating progress of technology.
The MASAI mission is to empower key stakeholders in the travel and tourism industry (Travellers, Concierges, Service Providers) in order to enable a seamless travel experience. This means that MASAI aims to serve:
- All stages of the travel process, considering changes in travellers’ mobility patterns.
- Long-distance travel as well as local travel including all related services
- Customers travelling for business as well as for leisure purposes.
The MASAI mission is made possible by creating an open ecosystem (“MASAI Mobility
Community”) characterized by:
- Its openness for innovations serving the customer needs.
- Its adaptability and scalability fostering cooperation in a competitive environment
- Its potential for direct discovery and connection between all MASAI Community
stakeholders, while travellers are put in full control of their personal data.
