Kick-off webinar
​28. January 2021

The first course of the SOLUTIONSplus global learning programme on electric mobility aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to electric mobility planning and implementation in local contexts.
The course is primarily designed for city and regional authorities, but can provide a solid knowledge base for any stakeholder involved or interested in electric mobility. 
In addition to lectures and material for self-study, a kick-off webinar gives key information and guidance about the learning programme and the SOLUTIONSplus project. Virtual exchange sessions are scheduled to accompany the course enabling interactive discussions with and among participants.
