The news is out - we are happy to announce we will hold our 1st SMALL expert roundtable on the 27th of April, 2023, in Brussels, Belgium! 


Titled How can people with reduced mobility become an important driver of shared mobility?, we are looking for external experts to provide us with their essential knowledge on how we can begin to build effective shared mobility pilots that meet the needs of our end-users. 


Think you could be one of them? Here are the profiles we are currently looking for:

  • Individual advocates representing people with reduced mobility, such as families, children, the elderly, and people with physical impairments;
  • European NGOs and/or associations representing people with reduced mobility;
  • Researchers and experts focusing on accessibility in transportation;
  • Shared mobility providers with relevant expertise in accessibility
  • Public transport operators with relevant expertise in accessibility;



About our project

The SMALL project strives to make shared mobility accessible to children, families, the elderly, and physically impaired people - part of a wider group classified as people with reduced mobility (PRM). Lasting a total of 48 months, it counts on highly committed and innovative partners among them cities and regions, universities, transport operators, shared mobility service providers, network organizations, etc.

The SMALL expert roundtables are a series of workshops that the SMALL partners plan to conduct with relevant stakeholders and experts on accessibility in transportation to gain insights and create knowledge that will improve the project outputs as the project moves forward. The results of these expert roundtables will be summarized in a series of insight papers that will be the basis of a new topic guide for inclusive shared mobility.

SMALL’s 1st project expert roundtable

The main goal of this first expert roundtable is to provide support to the SMALL pilot cities in the elaboration of their engagement action plans, which will have a strong component on co-creation techniques, as well as to give feedback in the construction of SMALL’s observatory for identification of state of the art engagement for shared mobility projects.

What we would need from you as an expert is to receive your valuable insights and knowledge on how we can frame the SMALL pilots to meet the needs of all people with reduced mobility. With your help, we will aim to understand what kind of new shared mobility solutions are most useful, what immediate and bigger changes can be undertaken by transport authorities, what are the most effective measures we can learn from, and more.
