Gender Smart Mobility: Research underpinning Policy“,

The 2nd TInnGO Multistakeholders’ Forum took place on Thursday 16th September 2021, 9:30 – 13:00 CEST, being the digital forum where new perspectives to approach gender smart mobility in the transport sector were discussed with different stakeholders; capitalising on the discussions and insights gained during the 1st TInngo Multistakeholders’ Forum last year.

Key concepts in TInnGO project, such a smart mobility, gender and diversity mainstreaming are also the cornerstones of the public discourse. A view of gender and diversity in smart transport that connects the TInnGO roadmap, on how this can progress current debates and create a paradigm shift towards greater inclusivity in the transport sector. The measure of success is when current and future transport provision if fully accessible and inclusive.

Scientific evidence was presented and discussed on how inequalities are created and furthermore, the Forum addressed paradigm shifts in education, employment, technological innovations and entrepreneurship as arenas for change and inclusion. It presented which strategies /policies and interventions have been most successful in increasing diversity, moving a step forward from Gender Action Plans to Gender and Diversity Action Plans, and whether this is having identifiable effects in the wider transport system.

During TInnGO Multistakeholders’ Forum, the focus of the stakeholders, was on how policy making should deploy results from Gender & Diversity Equality research, considering the TInnGO Observatory, the 10 national hubs in 13 European countries, the TInnGO Open Data Repository (T-ODR) and the TInnGO Open Innovation Platform.

Key questions that were discussed in the event are:

  • How Gender Smart Mobility is translated into policy and concrete actions in the EU and Member States?
  • How the research on gender in European Transport and the various tools for Gender and Diversity Smart Mobility can boost a gender-balanced and overall inclusive transport ecosystem in Europe?
  • Why the EU Transport and Mobility Policies need to focus on Gender Equality, Inclusion and Diversity?
  • Which priorities should be set to develop policies that can address gender imbalances in the transport sector?
