open innovation and data-driven solutions for sustainable mobility

 

mission

 

inBlenda is an independent sustainable transport planning and mobility innovation lab in the fight to curb climate change and transform cities for a better quality of life through effective planning, innovation management and economic growth.

We firmly believe that high-quality public transport, safe and pleasant spaces for walking & cycling, a focus on digitally connected mobility solutions, and progressive people-centred policies will pave the way to a sustainable forward-looking mobility. We pride ourselves with technical expertise, direct advocacy and policy guidance providing cities with more equitable access to economic opportunities and promoting improved safety, environmental sustainability and well-being of local communities.

working method

ideate

By adopting holistic design-thinking approaches and fostering co-participation processes, we bring together the knowledge and expertise of diverse stakeholders facing real-world challenges to co-create cutting edge solutions paving the way to a connected and low carbon mobility future.

investigate

Using a blurred combination of established industry standards and innovative methods, we offer high-quality research and consultancy services to analyse, plan, design and implement common transport solutions and disruptive mobility innovations in an open and responsible manner.

integrate

Newly designed solutions are integrated into existing mobility ecosystems and duly monitored and evaluated to ensure long-term sustainability targets can be achieved for the benefit of all stakeholders, and that mitigation actions are timely identified to optimise the low-carbon transition process.

projects

NEWBITS was a 3-year research and innovation project funded by the EC’s Horizon 2020 funding programme with the aim to improve the understanding of the conditions affecting the wide diffusion of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems by crafting novel business models and incentives.

inBlenda developed a benchmarking analysis of ITS innovation diffusion processes in the EU and US, directly liaising with top-level stakeholders in the US and Asia Pacific area; as one of the project's case study leaders, it also led the design of a network-based business model for a previously tested cooperative mobility service.

C-ROADS Italy 2, a 5-year project co-funded by the EC's Connected Europe Facility funding programme for 2014-2020, aims to research, develop, deploy and assess a set of cooperative mobility services (“Day 1” and “Day 1.5” C-ITS services) in real-life urban traffic conditions in three major Italian cities.

In C-ROADS Italy 2, inBlenda is supporting an implementing body, in turn assisting the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport (project coordinator), in leading the socio-economic impact assessment for the C-ROADS 2 Italy demonstrators as well as in carrying out the dissemination activities of the project.

PriMaaS is a project co-funded by the EC's Interreg Europe funding programme with the ambitious goal to promote a systemic integration of traditional collective transport modes with connected and shared forms of mobility by creating equitable services truly focused on citizens’ needs.

 

In PriMaaS, inBlenda provides transport operators with adequate instruments and information to develop Mobility as a Service schemes; supports Institutional bodies to define relevant multi-scale policies and strategies; stimulates multi-stakeholder dialogue for sustainable policy making; and sustains collaboration and builds capacity around MaaS solution design.
