Exploration sustainable shared mobility in the Northern Netherlands

Sustainable shared mobility can play an important role in solving various mobility issues. Shared mobility can potentially contribute to challenges in the field of accessibility, spatial planning of cities and, for example, CO2 reduction. However, shared mobility is not easily available for all areas and groups. This was the reason for Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen and Hive.Mobility to jointly start an exploration of the opportunities and possibilities on this subject in the Northern Netherlands.

On October 5, 2021, at the initiative of Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen and under the banner of Hive.Mobility, a meeting was organized with a group of parties interested in and active in the theme of shared mobility. The aim of this meeting was to share experiences in the field of shared mobility and to orientate on a joint project to ultimately contribute to the transition around inclusive shared mobility and to accelerate this transition. During this meeting spontaneous conversations arose in which experiences were exchanged, including the problems encountered. During a follow-up session on December 7, 2021, several interesting presentations were given, in which research results and experiences from different perspectives were shared.

Hanze University of Applied Sciences, together with Hive.Mobility, will further explore the innovative topic of shared mobility in the coming period. Are you or is your organization active on this subject and do you have interesting experiences to share? Or would you like to learn more or seek out collaboration? Let us know!
