end user platform
End User Platform
  • The End User Platform (EUP) represents organization of people with reduced mobility, i.e. people with disabilities, older people and other relevant user groups facing barriers in using public transports.
  • Established by AGE – The European Older People’s Platform, the EUP is now composed by 11 end-users organizations (the approved size is of 10 organizations); it guarantees that the point of view of persons with mobility limitations is taken into account both in relation to the project activities (mainly European Indicators and Self-assessment tool) and to the effective accessibility of information and outcomes throughout the project life-span; moreover the EUP supports the internal dissemination and exploitation of information.
  • The Platform intends to be active also after MEDIATE, in order to become a relevant group of stakeholders at European level; the participation to EU calls for proposal and the submission of papers for workshops and conferences are therefore foreseen

mediate and oasis
Mediate and OASIS

Matching the improvement of accessibility in public transport in Europe with assistance to older drivers and travelers:

  • Analysis of the demand of mobility services in OASIS could be linked to the analysis on indicators in MEDIATE
  • OASIS support services, vehicle demonstrations and route guidance could receive some feedbacks from the MEDIATE stakeholders and viceversa
