A mobility mission is a visit by project partners and stakeholders to lighthouse or follower cities to see innovative mobility solutions first-hand and learn about their implementation. They enable follower cities to learn from the experience of innovative and successful projects and transfer this knowledge to their own projects.

Istanbul, with its population of more than 15 Million inhabitants is a major mobility showcase, with inspiring use cases that involve not only urban and road-based, but also integrated sea and rail mobility that spans peri-urban and rural areas as well as multiple urban hubs.

During the Istanbul Mobility Mission, participants will visit Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IBB) facilities for integrated multi-modal mobility coordination and management as well as innovation hubs that have incubated various different start-ups who have moved on to provide internationally acclaimed mobility solutions. On the last day of the mission, the OPINA Open Innovation Autonomous Vehicle Development and Testing Platform Project will also be visited.
