MOBILITY INTIATIVE EVENTS

MOBILITY

FORUM

A weekly seminar series, the MIT Mobility Forum offers an opportunity to showcase the groundbreaking transportation research occurring across the Institute. Faculty members and researchers present their latest findings, ideas, and innovations, followed by a lively discussion. More details can be found at www.mobilityinitiative.mit.edu/mobilityforum.

LEADERSHIP IN MOBILITY INNOVATION

A series of dialogues between entrepreneurs and faculty members to offer insights into the diverse frameworks and opportunities for innovation within the field of mobility. More details can be found at www.mobilityinitiative.mit.edu/entrepreneurshipdialogue.

MOBILITY EQUITY SERIES

For communities both within and outside of the urban core, transportation plans and investments have often reinforced unequal land-use patterns and resulted in unequal access to economic and social opportunities. The MIT Mobility Equity Symposium and the Mobility Equity Series aim to help drive the dialogue around key mobility equity issues and to establish a shared research agenda.

MIT MOBILITY

VISION DAY

MIT's annual Mobility Vision Day showcases the latest research and innovation in the realm of transportation. The e convenes leaders and thinkers from across the globe representing the public, private, and non-profit sectors to encourage cross-sector collaboration in setting a research agenda driving innovation that creates a transportation system that is more sustainable, equitable, and efficient.
