On the 6th of October 2020, the INDIMO project will hold its first online Co-creation Community workshop on the deployment of digital mobility services. To date, about 40 participants already subscribed to the interactive sessions.
This workshop is the culmination of a series of case studies that INDIMO partners have been conducting for the last few months on the process of deployment of digital mobility and logistic services across Europe, through desk research and interviews with key stakeholders.
The objective of the workshop is to present and discuss the insights gathered in these case studies with policy makers, operators, developers and user organizations from across Europe. Topics such as the present regulatory framework and the development and deployment process of digital mobility services will be discussed in the workshop to identify the most important barriers and drivers to the design, planning, deployment and operation of accessible and inclusive digital personalized mobility and logistics services. The outcome will be used to support the development of the INDIMO Digital Mobility Toolbox.
The workshop agenda includes the presentation of the lessons learned from the case studies, followed by four parallel focus group discussions, in line with the topics of the case studies:
- Carsharing and ridesharing services
- Shared bike and micro-mobility services
- Multimodal route planning services and mobility as a service
- Smart logistics services
Participants’ reflections on the lesson learned in the INDIMO case studies and experiences regarding the drivers and barriers in the deployment of the services will be debated. Furthermore, the most important drivers and barriers for digital mobility solutions will be prioritised.
The workshop will end by highlighting the main outcomes of the focus group discussions and the future steps in the project.
