The project, entitled Motility for Professional Integration , aims to bring together research by the team of Vincent Kaufmann on an individual’s potential for mobility (also known as motility) and fieldwork lead by Mouvances. For many years, both have been working on the individual factors that influence mobility (access, skills, personal projects), Kaufmann in an academic context and Mouvances in the field of social integration. Beyond the complimentary expertise that will benefit both organizations, this collaboration is an opportunity for the Forum to venture into academic research on motility, creating research tools that will serve the operational needs of political actors of change.

For the Mobile Lives Forum, mobility is understood as the process of how individuals travel across distances in order to deploy through time and space the activities that make up their lifestyles. These travel practices are embedded in socio-technical systems, produced by transport and communication industries and techniques, and by normative discourses on these practices, with considerable social, environmental and spatial impacts.
