On 2 February 2021, the first Stakeholder Meeting of the Shift2Rail IP4 project RIDE2RAIL was held virtually. More than 110 participants from 30 countries across the European railway community and beyond participated in the event. Several partners from SYN+AIR Consortium attended the workshop with the aim of gathering more insight from other co-existing projects. The purpose was to get more insight about the Project, interact with speakers and especially learning about Door-2-Door (D2D) multimodal mobility strategies.
The first section of the workshop was focused towards the introduction, vision and objectives of the Project with planned impacts. An overview of the work carried out during the first 14 months of the Project was done by the Project Coordinator Giuseppe Rizzi from UITP, in which he also explained the following steps.
The workshop also gave participants the opportunity to learn more about railway initiatives dedicated to MaaS (Mobility as a Service) and Door-2Door mobility. The workshop was carried out with many interventions and presentations done by the different partners of the Project, giving a complete overview of the work that is being developed.
