Research Team

The STYLE consortium has a unique composition, including scholars from transport engineering, health and physical activity promotion, environmental planning, consumer research, business model development and futures studies. All these aspects are needed to fulfill the vision of increasing everyday physical activity in a way that changes the modal split towards walking and cycling and simultaneously brings about new business.
 
In this consortium, we collaborate by co-designing together our research and by feeding each partner directly contributes to results together. Most of the partners collaborate in all work packages. The concrete Urban Intervention cases make sure that all aspects are integrated in a comprehensive manner.
