Join the TRACE Take-Up Group - tracking walking and cycling

TRACE is a project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission, and is expected to increase and optimise the use of ICT tracking services for cycling and walking in cities.

Purpose and Profile of the TRACE Take-Up Group

The TRACE Take-Up Group will be composed of public and private actors interested in the roll-out of TRACE tracking tools beyond the project. The Group members will:

  • closely follow, comment on and validate the development of the tools throughout the project
  • receive a number of benefits and services from the TRACE project, which will enable them to take advantage of and learn from the experiences of the TRACE implementation sites as well as to actively contribute to drive the processes through their ideas and initiatives
  • have direct access to the project's key reports and events, while they will receive tailor-made and hands-on advice on the four tracking tools developed in TRACE
  • act as multipliers towards their peers.

The following is the indicative timing and scope of each meeting:

  • Meeting 1: week 18-22 January 2016 (exact date tbd)
  • Meeting 2: January 2017
  • Meeting 3: January 2018
