Mobilize Minds

Expert exchange


Since May 2020, TUMI and the Volvo Research and Education Foundations (VREF) have invited a global selection of experts on sustainable mobility to participate in a round of online exchanges on capacity development and education for sustainable mobility. These Expert Exchanges #MobilizeMinds for the first time established a forum in international cooperation for developing a discourse and joint vision on the educational and professional development requirements and opportunities towards a global mobility transition. The collaboration goes back to the first joint TUMI-VREF conference in Addis Ababa in 2019, which brought together over 50 researchers and practictioners on sustainable mobility.


The Expert Exchanges #MobilizeMinds have since on multiple Friday afternoons offered an informal space to discuss various related topics, such as:

  • Assessment of the stakeholder landscape in capacity development for the transport sector
  • Curricula development and necessary updates
  • Online learning and pedagogy
  • Capacity development and learning in times of a global pandemic
  • Funding programs and investments
  • Future cooperation between knowledge brokers, innovators and policy makers

TUMI and VREF are planning to continue the Expert Exchange #MobilizeMinds at a regular interval. Next anticipated date is late February 2021.
