The Cycling Research Board (CRB) invites contributions from multiple perspectives to better understand the role of bicycling in changing urban systems and vice versa. The 1st Annual Meeting of CRB in 2018 is organized by the Dutch Cycling Academy and aims to become a recurring meeting for a high-quality academic community around cycling research.
The Dutch Cycling Academy is a multi- and interdisciplinary network of scholars from Dutch universities. Together they work on cycling and its reciprocal relations with transport networks, urban- and social environments. Disciplines range from mathematics and engineering to philosophy and sociology. The mature cycling culture throughout the Netherlands offers a unique context to study the complex interplay of variables of the wider cycling system.
INTERDISICPLINARY KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE The potential value of this knowledge is only realized through active exchange with other contexts. CRB invites high quality research papers and/or presentations from all fields of study and disciplinary backgrounds. A central focus of the CRB is to foster interdisciplinary networking opportunities for both academics and practitioners involved in research that will strengthen alliances and facilitate the transfer of knowledge to action.
The theme of the first Annual Meeting of the Cycling Research Board is centered on the notion, “cycling as a boundary object” in order to best bridge disciplinary boundaries. We especially invite PhD researchers and early career scholars to present their work. We are committed to offer a constructive environment in which mutual support in developing joint- and individual academic products (e.g. papers, research proposals, and position papers) is central. We explicitly ask all attendees to specify which other discipline(s) they would like to engage with, be it academic or in planning practice.
