our roundtable is coming closer so I briefly wanted to send you some more information. First of all, thank you all very much for taking your time to participate in the roundtable! We are delighted to welcome you and to have the possibility for an exchange about the future of shared mobility. The roundtable takes places in an exciting phase of our project: we started with one of our key topics, „Open Source Shared Mobility“. So the aim of this first roundtable is a multifaceted exchange to jointly discuss our theses we are working on and involve your valuable perspectives and opinions into our work.

About the Open Source Lab[edit | edit source]

The Open Source Lab startet 2018 and is funded by the Volkswagen Sustainability Council, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence implements the project. With our first Roundtable and Get Together we want to provide a forum for exchange on future mobility – from research, NGOs, corporates and startup economy. The work of the Open Source Lab is based on a broadened understanding of mobility, it includes topics like governance, city planning or social justice to tackle mobility from all its related angles. So we hope everyone of you can gain new, exciting insights and benefit from the exchange and discussion among each other. For further information about the Lab, you are welcome to visit our Blog.
