Researchers from 14 institutions and companies in eight different European countries met on December 11-12 at Eurecat’s facilities in Barcelona to launch the DIAMOND project, which aims to reveal fair and actionable knowledge from data to support women’s inclusion in transport systems.
In this meeting, presentations were made by each of the participating companies in order to explain what tasks they perform and what responsibilities they have. Then, there was a session of LEGO Serious Play to clarify the tasks to be performed as well as to relate them to the established results.
TInnGO project coordinator, Professor Andrée Woodcock, representing the Centre for Mobility and Transport of Coventry University, attended this kick off meeting in order to look for possible synergies between both projects that share the same theme and that have been financed by Horizon 2020.
The kick-off meeting was attended by all consortium partners with representatives from Eurecat, DIAMOND’s project coordinator, AITEC, DIAMOND’s technical coordinator, four universities ( Edinburgh Napier University, the University of Stirling, the Technological University Dublin and the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering (FTTE) of the University of Belgrade), transport operators (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya, Autolib’ Vélib’ and the Public Transport Authority in Warsaw), associations (Genre & Ville and WAVE) and consultancies and companies (Systematica, Hexagon Studio and RINA).
