Micromobility is one of the fastest growing transport modes globally and has the potential to offer low-cost, affordable and green forms of transport. It will play an increasingly important role in mobility and the design of places over the coming years.
forum + micromobility = ForuMM
ForuMM is an initiative co-founded by Innovate UK and Connected Places Catapult, designed to maximise the potential of micromobility for the UK. It will support local authorities in understanding best practice around policy, regulation, innovation, data and collaboration.
This launch event will provide an overview of ForuMM, background to the initiative and plans for the next 12 months.
We will also be joined by a guest speaker to share their views on mobility and vision for the future.
