Project Details


This project explores new ways of combining work and life on the move with intelligent and sustainable transport system services. The first objective of this project is to identify the changing needs of mobile workers. For this objective, the consortium will collect data by surveys, interviews, and workshops in Austria, Finland, and Switzerland. The second objective is to increase the sustainability of mobility by supporting the implementation of new mobility concepts. These implementations help to scale up our partners’ operations, evaluate how these new concepts meet the evolving needs of mobile workers and discover some common ground for city planning policies.
