Manon Coyne

Project & Capital Cities Working Group Manager

Manon joined POLIS in September 2020.

She has been involved in several EU-funded projects on urban mobility trends such as UVAR digitalisation, data-sharing, and the transport workers’ transition. She is currently working on public transport improvement as part of the UPPER project, as well as on urban air mobility services in the MUSE and MAIA projects. She also coordinates POLIS’ new Capitals Working Group.

Travel adept, Manon constantly moves across Europe (and beyond) for her ultimate frisbee career. She previously worked for the car manufacturing sector, focusing on the role of cars in the urban environment, UVARs, charging infrastructure, and trade and economic development policies. She has worked in the field of railway passenger transport, where she focused on passenger rights and ticketing interoperability.

Manon holds master’s degrees in European Studies and Political Science from Sciences Po Paris and the Freie Unversität Berlin. She also studied economics and mathematics at the Higher School of Economics of Moscow and worked at the French-Russian Chamber of Commerce.
