From 03 April 2024 to 04 April 2024
On the 3rd and 4th of April 2024, a workshop on digital platforms mobility will be held in the city of Čačak, Serbia. The event, is the first of a series of 6 workshops which will be held in 6 different cities within the SSH CENTRE project (Social Sciences and Humanities for Climate, Energy aNd Transport Research Excellence): Čačak, Serbia; Arnhem, The Netherlands; Grenoble, France; Porto, Portugal; Valencia, Spain; Rijeka, Croatia.
The project aims to enhance the contribution of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) to accelerate the EU’s transition to carbon neutrality by better engaging SSH researchers with stakeholders across research, policy, and business.
Under the project, Knowledge & Innovation (K&I) and Energy Cities launched a programme on Social Sciences and Humanities knowledge brokerage for regional-level governance, involving 6 cities in 6 different key topics.
The city of Čačak, in collaboration with a dedicated team of researchers, will focus its work on the digitalisation of mobility. Beyond promoting easy and broad access to mobility solutions to all, digitalisation holds an opportunity to reduce transport carbon emissions. To ensure its success and adoption and allow behavioural shifts, digital platforms must be designed with the dwellers and for the dwellers, in a participatory approach. Such platforms also need to address questions related to accessibility and the integration of different and emerging mobility solutions.
The workshop will be the occasion for diving in the topic together with the team of researchers, local administrators, and stakeholders from other cities. It will include a city tour with local stakeholders to get feedback on the work done by the team so far.
The workshop is open to the participation of 8 representatives from 8 European cities. If you are interested in sharing your experience and learning from other cities, contact us to get more information on the programme!
