On 27 July, we have held a workshop to kick-off the Mobility Survey Victoria project, which is supported by Carlton Connect Initiative Funds. The meeting gathered the chief investigators involved with the project partners to discuss: administrative item, such as commitment to timelines/schedule; potential research outcomes; and the next steps. SMART (Singapore) team joined the meeting via Skype.

Several outcomes of the meeting: the survey is to go live from 1 October to 30 November, following at least a month of internal testing; many potential research directions, including study on households, travel happiness, comparison study of mobility patterns, and data analysis/comparison.
