Involving users in development of future mobility
This working group brings together researchers and developers involved in the design of vehicles and mobility services and representatives of user organizations. They will together discuss benefits of a user-centered approach in the development of tomorrow’s mobility, exchange best practices but also examine barriers and opportunities to overcome them.
Viable business for seamless transport
In an ideal scenario, the future transport system will allow each and every citizen to travel seamlessly and easily from any place in Europe to another in a reasonable timespan, and by making use of multiple transport modes (active mobility, road, air, rail, water). Citizens would book one single ticket valid for all segments, though operated by different subjects. In order to achieve such a system, all stakeholders involved in transport cooperate closely to build a mobility value chain in which each party has a reasonable share. A new legal framework has to be established, collaboration has to be fostered, and the necessary technologies supporting this collaboration have to be developed and rolled out. This workshop handles these challenges and proposes co-creation exercises around three themes:
Co-creating our future mobility system
Co-creation is the new buzzword to increase public participation in transport planning. Co-creation involves citizens in the data collection to explore problems in their neighbourhoods, co-design alternatives to solve these problems, implements the solutions with the citizens and monitors their impact. This working group will look at how <strong>technology</strong> can help to increase citizen participation. We will discuss engagement of people in data collection (citizen observatories and smart surveys), co-design of solutions to their problems and the participatory evaluation of these solutions. In addition, we will discuss how face-to-face communication can improve consensus making drawing on the knowledge and experience of their members to propose solutions adapted to their needs and interests.
