SMACKER Final Conference

Soft Measures & Actions for behavioural Change and Knowledge to embrace peripheral and rural areas

SMACKER project worked between April 2019 and June 2022 on promoting demand-responsive transport and mobility services, connecting local and regional mobility systems to the main EU corridors and transport nodes and nudging people to use public transport services.

Approaching to its end in June 2022, SMACKER capitalized the scientific and on-the-field pilot activities to build up its lasting legacy.
The achieved results and outputs were presented during the final scientific conference in Vienna on 24 May 2022. The event was open to the public and took place in a hybrid version, allowing participants to join both in person and online.
