Politecnico di Torino is one of the largest Italian educational and research facilities focusing on technical fields (engineering and architecture). Its Engineering School is the oldest one in Italy, dating back to 1859. 43% of Italian students come from outside Piedmont and 15% are foreigners (the highest figure in Italy). POLITO is consistently in top positions in Italian university rankings both for the quality of the research and for the educational activities that are carried out.
POLITO’s role in TInnGO includes the study of the socioeconomic and personal aspects that shape mobility behaviours, the identification of imbalances in educational provision and the coordination of the Italian hub, which will focus on the role of shared mobility towards the implementation of a gender smart transport system, in close cooperation with the STARS project.
