Project: Research direct

Project Details


The Smart Cycling Futures (SCF) program investigates how smart cycling innovations including ICT-enabled cycling innovations, infrastructures, and social innovations like new business models contribute to more resilient and live-able Dutch urban regions.

Layman's description

Key findings

Cycling innovations benefit urban regions in terms of accessibility, equality, health, live-ability, and decreasing CO2-emissions when socially well embedded. To facilitate a transition to a sustainable future that respond to pressing issues, the SCF research project runs urban living labs in close collaboration with key stakeholders to develop trans-disciplinary insights in the conditions needed for upscaling smart-cycling initiatives. Each living lab involving real-world experiments responds to the urgent challenges that urban regions and their stakeholders face today. SCF is funded by the Dutch organisation for scientific research (NWO).
