TInnGO

Transport Innovation Gender Observatory

TInnGO was a 3 years’ research project funded in the context of the HORIZON 2020 Programme of the EU, aiming to create a framework and mechanisms for a sustainable game change in European transport through a transformative strategy of gender and diversity sensitive smart mobility.
Women face higher risks and burdens than men in transport, due to unequal access to resources, education, job opportunities and entrenched socio-cultural norms. The TInnGO project (http://www.tinngo.eu, https://www.linkedin.com/company/tinngo) has developed a framework and mechanisms for a sustainable game change in European transport using the transformative strategy of gender and diversity sensitive smart mobility. It addressed gender related contemporary challenges in the transport ecosystem and women’s mobility needs, creating a route for Gender Sensitive Smart Mobility in European Transport, which considers diversity of different groups.
Intersectional analysis, with gender aligned to socio cultural dimensions, was applied to different types of transport data, assessment tools, modelling of new mobility policies, planning and services to show prevalence of transport poverty in traditionally hard to reach groups. TInnGO has shown how inequalities are created and address gendered practices of education, employment, technological innovations and entrepreneurship as arenas for change and inclusion of gendered innovations.
A Pan European observatory for gender smart transport innovation (TInnGO) provided a nexus for data collection, analysis, dissemination of gender mainstreaming tools and open innovation. TInnGO’s emphasis on diverse and specific transport needs is shown in its unique comparative approach enabling contributions from, and influence of 13- member states in 10 hubs. These used qualitative, quantitative and design research methods, combining hands-on knowledge, concrete actions and best practices to develop gender and diversity sensitive smart mobility and solutions through associated ideas factories (TInnGIdLabs). No former EU funded project has applied an intersectional gender approach to smartening transport. TInnGO has therefore lead research into a new era and use the knowledge to achieve impacts on Social, Economic, Environmental and European ambitions of growth, wealth and innovation.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 824349.
