On 11 January, during the TRB Standing Committee on Women and Gender in Transportation (AME20), Miriam Pirra, a member of the TInnGO project and expert from the Politecnico di Torino (POLITO), in Italy, presented in 70 seconds and 7 key words her Paper ‘If You Can’t Write Diversity into Future Transport, Then What’s the Point? You Don’t Create New Worlds to Give Them All the Same Limits of the Old Ones’.
This paper, whose abstract can be read on the website of this annual meeting, was written in collaboration with three other TInnGO members: Andree Woodcock, an academic from Coventry University (United Kingdom) and Principal Investigator of this Horizon 2020 project; Katarzyna Gut, also from Coventry University, and Stefan Roseanu, Integral Consulting R&D-
