Green Urban Mobility Innovation

Objectives

The framework conditions for Green Urban Mobility in select Indian cities are improved.

Description

The project aims to enhance green urban mobility and transportation systems in India by creating a platform for innovation, collaboration and prototyping, bringing public and private stakeholders together under the roof of ‘Living Lab’ (LL). By providing an ‘open innovation ecosystem’ around green urban mobility for public and private stakeholders, it is envisioned to contribute to an improved innovation enabling environment and framework conditions for Green Urban Mobility Innovation that has benefits for all citizens, including the vulnerable and poor groups of society.
