“Towards sustainable mobility: Verified human-centred and data-driven solutions” is the title of a meeting that summarised the activities of the CoMobility project team. The event began on 6th March and lasted two days. Researchers presented the results of three years of research into the transportation behaviour of Warsaw residents and its impact on air quality. The “Co-designing Inclusive Mobility” project was led by Dr Anna Nicińska from the Faculty of Economic Sciences, the University of Warsaw.

The project was developed during an IdeaLab workshop with researchers from Poland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Their task was to look at cities as good places to live and work in 2040 and develop designs that respond to contemporary challenges. The “Co-designing Inclusive Mobility (CoMobility)” project, led by Dr Anna Nicińska from the UW’s Faculty of Economic Sciences, received the highest score, winning funding of nearly PLN 9 million.


The project was carried out at the UW’s Faculty of Sociology, with support from the UW’s DELab (Digital Economy Lab). The CoMobility consortium consisted of the University of Warsaw (leader), the Warsaw School of Economics, the Warsaw University of Technology, the Norwegian Institute for Air Research, the Fridtjof Nansen Institute, the “Na miejscu” foundation, and the City of Lublin.


Sustainable mobility

On 6th and 7th March, the Copernicus Science Centre hosted a conference summarising the CoMobility project. The team of researchers presented the toolkit they designed to implement low-cost interventions to support green cities. They also spoke about urban transport policy, methods of air pollution reduction , as well as education, citizen science, and scientific modelling. The event offered an opportunity to present the final results of the analyses, which became publicly available. It was accompanied by expert workshops and the publication of a guidebook in Polish for local government officials: “Zróbmy sobie miasto: Niskobudżetowe, proste do wdrożenia interwencje na rzecz poprawy jakości środowiska lokalnego” (ENG: “Let’s make a city: Low-budget, easy-to-implement interventions to improve the quality of the local environment”).


The results of the project research were presented by members of the CoMobility team. Practitioners and external experts also participated in the debate. Participation in the conference and accompanying events were free of charge. Every participant was also entitled to use free public transport during the event.
