Interuniversity Chair “Companies & Sustainable Mobility. The Company Car Debate & Beyond“

“Companies and Sustainable Mobility” : Final dissemination event

VUB-based interuniversity & multidisciplinary research chair

Mobility definitely constitutes one of the biggest contemporary societal challenges. Therefore, eleven organisations / interest groups each provided a budget to be managed by Brussels Studies Institute (BSI) in the context of an academic research chair. The aim of this interuniversity research chair is to generate a broad, scientifically substantiated approach of (company) mobility based on cross-community and multidisciplinary academic research (focusing on different geographic scales and cases, with a particular interest in the Brussels metropolitan area).
