CR2C2 Research Seminars

CR2C2 organizes cross-disciplinary seminars and workshops in different aspects of rural transportation planning, technological solutions, and equitable mobility services for the mobility of goods and people in rural and underserved communities. The goal is to create a CR2C2 seminar series as an interactive forum for sharing recent research results and discussing various aspects of technological solutions for rural transportation from different angles by participants with different backgrounds and expertise from academia, industry, government, and national labs. The seminars will be live-streamed to partners and made publicly available through the CR2C2 website.
