Communication

1 – Sharing our learnings with a wide range of audiences all around the world

Since starting this project in 2018, we’ve travelled the world to visit conferences and events to share the key learnings of our project, including World Metro and Light Rail (2018), Civitas Forum (2018), Nordic Edge (2018), MaaS Congress (2019), Future Urban Mobility Congress (2019), ITS Canada Webinar (2019), CHI 2019, Prague City Data Congress (2019), ITS World 2019, ITS Europe 2019, Civitas Forum 2019, Percom ’20, Annual Polis Conference (2020) and many more.

On 21st of January 2021 we organised our final TMaaS conference, an online event. Watch recordings of part 1 and part 2.

2 – Prizes and Awards for TMaaS

The City of Ghent has been recognised, alongside eight European towns and cities, for its innovative urban mobility strategy at the 2018 CITIVAS Awards ceremony in Umeå, Sweden.

TMaaS Bookazine

The bookazine features the opinions of numerous experts in the field of innovative mobility and data. They write engagingly about the project, its ambitions, challenges and results, and look at diverse trends in the field of urban mobility. The book also seriously considers a number of topics from a lifestyle point of view.

From the perspective of TMaaS, the book – supported, like the entire project, by the Urban Innovative Actions initiative of the European Union – is the perfect conclusion to a process that took three years. It will not only be a fun keepsake, but also a comprehensive reference book that can be a source of inspiration for other cities, companies or academics interested in innovative mobility solutions.

In a project where digital is central, an online version of the book is of course essential. The digital copy of the bookazine is available for downloading from the TMaaS website.

3 – Creatives we work with

We worked with some amazing designers to create beautiful, stunning visuals, infographics, animations and photography to support our communications activities. Social storytelling agency Chase Creative is our partner in creating stunning videos, Roman Klochkov created a fun and informative animation video to explain the potential of TMaaS, StoryMe designed this short animation to explain the TMaaS concept, Wim Vandersleyen created a series of inforgraphics, Mangrove Productions is our partner in creating copy for articles and campaigns, photographer Rob Mitchell (Stillmation Photography) is behind all the beautiful photography that you find on our website and in our presentations. The front end of the LINK.gent dashboard was designed by Bits of Love.
