TDM Symposium 2021 + Diamond& TInnGO Final Dissemination Event

The 10th International Symposium on Travel Demand Management is being held in collaboration with the EU projects DIAMOND and TInnGO’s final conference and will take place from 17th – 19th November 2021. The event will be held virtually with the theme of “Creating a paradigm shift towards gender and equality in smart mobility”. The final outcomes of both projects will be presented.

The transport policy’s vision is that everyone should have the same access to transport services, to be able to go where they want or need to go and to be able to do so easily, safely, confidently and without extra cost. Transport makes a difference in growing women’s productivity and promoting gender equality. Transport is a traditionally male-dominated sector, both from an employment perspective and the values it symbolises. The UK’s DfT’s Inclusive Transport Strategy has the potential to be a key vehicle for achieving the improvements that are needed. A successful strategy needs transparency, ambition, and set of practical actions across all industry sectors and users. With this is mind, great efforts have been made to provide transport professionals with the data, tools and approaches to help them to understand and achieve gender and diversity equality in transport and to help them to better incorporate gender issues in their planning and design.

Whilst gender and transport is therefore a rather new professional field, currently there is a huge amount of research, design and planning of systems required in order to achieve gender equality in the many sectors. For example the HORIZON 2020 call, MG-4-3-2018 on demographic change and participation of women in transport funded the DIAMOND and TinnGO  project to create gender and diversity sensitive data, methodologies and tools to achieve gender equality in transport.

The event will be an opportunity to develop and drive forward synergy between academics, researchers, policy makers and industry.

The event is focused on the following topics:   

  • New approaches to data collection – digital and mixed methods
  • Gendered innovations in mobility/design research
  • Gendered mobility, education, employment
  • Gender and diversity in policy analysis and practice. 
  • Dissemination and impact of gender analysis
