Kontou supported by Sloan Foundation for workshop on equitable clean transport solutions!

Extremely excited to receive support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for the organization of a multi-sectoral workshop, envisioning equitable transitions to sustainable transportation and creating an open forum for networking and discussions between researchers, disadvantaged communities, and industry!

We are collaborating with iSEE and University of Illinois at Chicago faculty to organize this event. The event’s objective is to bring together researchers, educators, and community and industry leaders; share perspectives on planning and implementing equitable transitions to sustainable transportation; empower them to build meaningful connections for future community-engaged research collaborations; and prompt them to identify solutions to gaps in research, workforce development and education, access and availability of funding, incorporating equity and inclusion measures, and policies to accelerate the transition. We aim to host this event at the end of the semester in Spring 2024.
