The SOLUTIONSplus project has opened registrations for its first course on e-mobility. The e-learning programme aims to provide participants with a basic understanding of e-mobility in a global and online learning environment.
The global learning programme is based on the SOLUTIONSplus project, which aims to enable transformational change towards sustainable urban mobility through innovative and integrated electric mobility solutions. With the learning programme, knowledge and practical expertise are provided to a broad audience - it is primarily designed for city and regional authorities, but any stakeholder involved or interested in e-mobility is more than welcome to join.
The first course consists of four thematic units:
- First, e-mobility is contextualised in the pursuit of decarbonising our transport systems.
- Secondly, a link between e-mobility and integrated planning is established.
- An overview of the e-mobility ecosystem is presented and relevant sectors, stakeholder needs, as well as operator requirements, are mapped.
- Furthermore, students learn about good practice examples of policy measures and incentives to support the electrification of transport.
This way, the course serves to establish a general framework to be built upon in all upcoming courses.
In addition to lectures and material for self-study, a kick-off webinar gives key information and guidance about the learning programme and the SOLUTIONSplus project. Virtual exchange sessions are scheduled to accompany the course enabling interactive discussions with and among participants.
You can register for the kick-off webinar on 28 January 2021 at 14:00 CET.
Registration is also possible for the first e-course, which will focus on Electric Mobility: More than just electrifying cars
About the SOLUTIONSplus project:
SOLUTIONSplus brings together highly committed cities, industry, research, implementing organisations and finance partners and establishes a global platform for shared, public and commercial e-mobility solutions to kick start the transition towards low-carbon urban mobility. The project encompasses city level demonstrations to test different types of innovative and integrated e-mobility solutions, complemented by a comprehensive toolbox, capacity development and replication activities. Demonstration actions will be launched in Hanoi (Vietnam), Pasig (Philippines), Lalitpur/Kathmandu (Nepal), Kigali (Rwanda), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Quito (Ecuador), Montevideo (Uruguay), Madrid (Spain), Nanjing (China) and Hamburg (Germany).
