Towards the Development of a Roadmap of Mobility Living Labs
Thursday, 9th September, 11:30-13:10 CEST
Best practices, methodologies, common strategy and the roadmap of Living Labs will be presented and topics of replicability, transferability, scalability and complementarity will be discussed with the participants during the session.
The session will be focused on the results of the mapping of Living Labs that was executed within the Working Group on Mobility of the European Network of Living Labs which is leaded by Hellenic Institute of Transport-HIT.
The mapping was mostly composed of universities and living labs, operating in open environments but also with simulation skills and including private, public institutions as well as research and academic organizations in their eco-systems. The main activities were related to technological implementations and social experiments related to policy support and the provisions of mobility services and receiving funds from public and private sources. Two large clusters are identified; the first one consists of LLs with more long term and focused projects/activities at national levels while the second one includes LLs with shorter multi-domain/topic projects/activities at local and regional level. The identity of the first cluster was the one of a university or research center focusing in policy design and monitoring with a strong scientific background, while the identity of the second one was the one of a living lab ecosystem focusing in citizens’ science and services for society with more technological and social capabilities.

Dr. Josep Maria Salanova Grau was born in Barcelona in 1983 and is a Senior Researcher of the Hellenic Institute of Transport of the Center for Research and Technology Hellas. He holds a graduated diploma from the Polytechnic School of the University of Catalonia (U.P.C.), Department of Civil Engineer (2007). In 2008-2009 he acquired the MSc on Design, Organization and Management of Transportation Systems of the Aristotle’s University of Thessaloniki. In 2010-2013 he conducted his PhD research in the Polytechnic School of the University of Catalonia (U.P.C.) with dissertation title “modelling of taxicab fleets in urban environment”. He also holds a diploma on Data Science Specialization at the Johns Hopkins University. The year 2007 he worked for the CENIT (Center for Innovation in Transport) in Barcelona, and since 2008 he works at the Hellenic Institute of Transport, where he is leading the “Data analysis and modelling” laboratory. His scientific interests concern research and developments in transport and mostly in algorithm and model development, mobility, intermodal transport and logistics as well as Data Science and Big Data at the transport domain. He speaks fluently Catalan and Spanish and very well Greek and English.

María Alonso Raposo holds a degree in Industrial Design Engineering and Human-Computer Interaction. She worked as researcher on human factors in driving in the private sector for about 15 years. Then she joined the Sustainable Transport Unit at the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) Ispra, Italy, in 2016 as a technology and policy analyst on autonomous road transport. The main focus of her work is the analysis of the social and economic implications of a Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility, in support of EU policy-making in this area. At present, she is responsible for the scientific activities of the JRC Future Mobility Solutions Living Lab engaging citizens in the co-creation of future mobility.
Living Labs Officer at the EIT Urban Mobility
Jordi CasasLiving Labs Officer at the EIT Urban Mobility
Jordi Casas holds a degree in Industrial Engineering and a master’s degree in Lean Supply Chain Management. He worked as a transport planner on urban mobility projects in the consultancy sector for about 12 years. During this period, he managed a wide range of local, regional, national, and international projects about urban mobility (traffic, walking, cycling, public transport, freight transport, parking management, e- mobility, sharing mobility services, etc.), gaining hands-on experience on setting-up, managing and evaluating urban living labs (such as in the CIVITAS DESTINATIONS project). Then he joined the EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), in 2020 as living labs officer. The objectives of his work at EIT Urban Mobility are twofold. On the one hand, to ensure that the EIT Urban Mobility offers a suitable environment to innovators to test and validate their solutions by coordinating a network of cities and living labs across its Innovation Hubs. On the other hand, to build-up and manage the knowledge base platform of urban mobility-related living labs and test beds from cities, liaising with key stakeholders and partners for regular update of the platform and sharing of results.
