Last week on June 28th and 29th we officially kicked off the GEMINI project (Greening European Mobility through cascading innovation INItiatives) in Potsdam, Germany. Coordinated by the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI), this Horizon Europe-funded project consists of 43 partners and will run for 3.5 years.
The GEMINI project aims to reinforce modal shift through the demonstration and uptake of new shared mobility services, active transport modes, and micro-mobility, and their integration with public transport in new generation Mobility as a Service (MaaS) services. GEMINI will develop and test sustainable business models for New Mobility Services (NMS), including shared connected automated vehicles and shared mobility public transport and public-private partnerships, to increase shared mobility solutions for enterprises, families and tourists.
Drivers of this transition towards climate neutrality will be 8 GEMINI Mobility Living Labs (MLL) in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Ljubljana, Munich, Paris, Porto and Turin. With the goal of changing mobility patterns, these living labs will stimulate improved access to public transport whilst introducing sustainable mobility business models in urban and peri-urban contexts.
