About this event

Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council and RECIPROCITY invite you to the RECIPROCITY Mobility Mission Helsinki from October 5th til 7th 2022 for three days of exploration, knowledge exchange and networking around Safe, Connected & Autonomous Mobility in the Helsinki Metropolitan Region in Finland.

To stimulate peer-to-peer learning and exchange, RECIPROCITY organizes overall four of such Mobility Missions. A Mobility Mission is an expert site visit to lighthouse cities to experience pioneering mobility solutions first-hand and to learn about their implementation. It enables follower cities to learn from the experiences made in these pilot projects and to transfer this knowledge to their own replication projects.

Notice that the events agenda will be updated in August to include latest and most inspiring mobility solutions of The Helsinki Region!
