Scientists for Cycling

The Scientists for Cycling network, launched at the Velo-city Global 2010 conference in Copenhagen, arises from the recognition that there are many experts in both natural and social sciences worldwide who are able and ready to contribute to ECF’s mission: to improve and to increase cycling.

Research, research plans and scientific-based publications on cycling or cycling-related matters are often not sufficiently connected to (the networks of) other scientists, to professionals and to volunteers who work on cycling. The Scientists for Cycling network is designed to bridge this gap.

Here is a leaflet presenting the ‘Scientists for Cycling‘ network. 

Who can apply

Academics or anybody actively engaged in applied research, teaching and dissemination from all disciplines interested in cycling or cycling-related topics.
