The need to foster a better relationship between the productive sector, public authorities and the Scientific and Technologic System led the University of Aveiro to create the Technological Platform on Bicycle and Soft Mobility whose mission is to support the creation of conditions to promote bicycle use (in particular) and soft modes of mobility (in general) in the region of Aveiro and Portugal.
