Drivers of mobility innovations are often large private companies. Naturally, such companies invest where they see the biggest market potential, which is usually in cities. Rural mobility innovations, on the other hand, are rather an offspring of local, sometimes non-commercial initiatives and satisfy different demand patterns. Rural mobility innovations are possible, yet they are hampered by various obstacles.
The Rural Mobility Seminar Series has been developed by MAMBA as an event series that reflects current trends and challenges of rural mobility. Each seminar is dedicated to one specific topic and is open for researchers, local decision makers, transport and mobility professionals interested in exchange, networking and new perspectives on rural mobility.
Nordregio is a partner in the MAMBA Interreg project and Research Fellow Anna Berlina will participate in the panel discussion “Barriers and enablers of innovation in rural mobility” together with researchers from Sweden, Latvia and Germany.
The first mobility seminar takes place in Riga 27 September and you can register through this link: https://goo.gl/v4ABp6
