What we do
Urbanization and the growing traffic conjestion forces cities to experiment with innovative solutions to transport more people and goods with fewer modes of transport, lower emissions, and less use of space. Many separate experiments have been launched in recent years. SUMMALab (Smart Urban Mobility Meta Lab) connects these experiments. In this way, regions can learn from each other and we can scale up promising solutions faster.
Why we do this
SUMMALab develops methods on short- and long-term business models, technical scalability and mobility and economic impacts. These methods help to support and switch experiments. In addition, SUMMALab develops transport models that provide insight into the effectiveness of innovative solutions when they are used in combination, on a larger scale and in larger areas.
SUMMALab focuses on:
* First- and last-mile solutions
* Door-to-door solutions
* Urban built infrastructure
We handle knowledge dissemination and valorisation for SUMMALab. For this purpose, we set up a website, where we share information about the project. Furthermore, we deploy digital channels to share knowledge and contribute to various consultations, both internal and external.
