Testing the viability of innovative solutions in a Living Lab environmentis a vital step to demonstrate the economic, social and environmental viability of business and operational models.
This Summer and Autumn School will first feature key aspects of the Living Lab concept and will then take closer look at main components of urban electric mobility, the electrification of public transport and the provision of first and last mile connectivity by private sector operators. Last, implementation of the e-mobility pilots in participatory and sector integrating EcoZones will be discussed.
This online programme will focus on an implementation-oriented perspective on sustainable mobility, focusing on the potential contribution of selected solutions to sustainable development, climate change and urban development, which includes four core modules:
● Living lab concepts and operation (21.09. - 02.10.) ● Electrification of public transport (incl. integration, charging, procurement) (5-16.10) and, ● First/last-mile connectivity (incl. business modelling, vehicle design and prototyping). (19.- 30.10.) ● Tactical urbanism and participatory eco-zones (2-13.11)
Alongside a public Webinar series on these topics, the SOLUTIONSplus team will work in smaller teams on several key aspects related to the demonstration activities, business partnerships, tools, analysis, training and financing. This relates directly to SOLUTIONSplus project outputs and actively supports the partner cities and regional start-up communities as well as all Work Package teams. Outputs from the city and regional teams could include ● Adaptation of proposed KPIs to the local settings ● Tools to offer and tool requests from partner cities and companies ● Training material and knowledge products ● Business concepts and (potential) partnerships ● Implementation plans, technical designs ● Scale-up concepts This online workshop is meant to facilitate teambuilding around the local innovations that will be developed and tested in the project and aims to kick-start the next phase pf the project by taking further steps towards upcoming deliverables.
