Webinar: Helsinki-Uusimaa Mobility Innovation Ecosystem

15.9.2022 - 15.9.2022

Helsinki-Uusimaa Mobility Innovation Ecosystem introduces the innovative and agile public framework connected to smart mobility actors.

The creation of new smart mobility solutions has been made easy in Helsinki and Finland. The government and the capital region cities are committed to further enabling future intelligent mobility. The legislation is favourable for new experiments and the recent heavy deregulation makes it easier for new types of transportation services to enter the market.

Helsinki-Uusimaa as a region contains urban testbeds to pilot and scale mobility solutions in real-life environments. Helsinki is also the home of the first open mobility-as-a-service ecosystem in the world. From top R&D possibilities, product development opportunities, unique piloting platforms, global expansion, university and research collaboration, funding, talent and partners – the Helsinki-Uusimaa region has vivid smart mobility ecosystem!

H2020 RECIPROCITY -project aims at transforming European cities into climate-resilient and connected, multimodal nodes for smart and clean mobility through an innovative four-stage replication approach.

Mobility is changing. Urbanisation, climate change and digitalisation challenge how people and goods move from point A to point B. To cope with these ever-increasing challenges and meet European and global climate targets, urban and peri-urban areas need to become climate-resilient and connected, multimodal nodes for smart and clean mobility.

The RECIPROCITY has at least 20 cities across Europe, of varying size and mobility demand, with the necessary tools, knowledge, contacts and methods to accelerate the replication of existing innovative mobility solutions.
