The HiReach project is organising a Multidisciplinary Ideation Workshop in Brussels on March 27 (afternoon) and 28 (full day) to address issues related to inclusive mobility and transport poverty.
Both issues concern daily challenges stemming from a range of human, social and geographical limitations. Those most affected are persons with reduced mobility options, including children, elderly, women, low-income, immigrants, people with reduced mobility, and persons living in rural areas.
The aim of the workshop is to design and implement new products, services, and solutions to tackle transport poverty and make mobility more inclusive. This will be done using the Lean Service Creation (LSC) methodology, a design process, set of tools, and handbook that combines best practices of service design thinking, lean start-up, and agile development.
If you are an expert, a start-uper or entrepreneur, or simply have interest in mobility topics, don't miss this workshop! We are very much looking forward to your insight on the topics.
Your attendance is required on both days. The first day’s plenary session will introduce the HiReach project and provide background information about the workshop. On the second day, discussions will delve into the challenges of designing new inclusive mobility solutions.
A detailed agenda will be available closer to the date of the event.
BENEFITS OF ATTENDING
As a participant, you will exchange perspectives with more than 40 transportation experts, industry professionals, entrepreneurs and start-uppers, designers, researchers, public officials, and representatives of vulnerable groups from around Europe. You will also have the opportunity to review practical solutions to make mobility inclusive for all.
