    Digital event (via Zoom)

In recent years, innovations in mobility have enriched transport options for society at large. At the same time not all people benefit equally from new solutions, as gaps exist across the whole mobility system. Those affected cannot participate in several societal activities or with much greater efforts than the average users, including people with disabilities, elderly persons, those without access to digital technologies as well as people living in rural and suburban areas. The first workshop of the new workshop series "Driven by Data" will focus on data innovations that foster inclusion of all mobility users.

In this workshop, a keynote and five research projects will be shortly presented. The invited speakers will share with participants their experiences and current findings on innovative data-based solutions for a more inclusive mobility system in Europe. All participants will have the opportunity to exchange on current research and innovation developments and needs and network with other participants in a very informal setting.

You are very welcome to join and share your knowledge and ideas during the event.

We look forward to your participation!

To register, please send an email with the subject "EU-Workshop 1/23" to mFUND@bmdv.bund.de.

You will receive a link to a virtual meeting room shortly before the event.

About the online mFUND-Workshop series “Driven by Data - The mFUND workshop series about mobility innovation in Europe”

In 2021 the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) started the workshop series "Data Innovations for Smart Mobility in Europe" as part of the mFUND activities to foster knowledge exchanges and networking between stakeholders from the political sphere, business, user groups and research communities in Germany and abroad. In 2023 the series is back under a new name, “Driven by Data”.

Driven by data is motivated by the opportunities data can provide to mobility systems in Europe. Data use can be applied in all parts and stages of the system, ranging from more user-centric, environment-friendly and inclusive mobility planning to more efficient use of resources and increased resilience systems. In this series, speakers from all around Europe will give an overview of their projects activities, ideas and challenges, serving as inspiration for discussions with participants. The intention is to keep it simple and straightforward, further providing a platform to knowledge exchange and the creation of new partnerships between European stakeholders.
