Aim of the joint call The key objective of the joint research call is to understand the successful (policy) measures aimed at making mobility patterns more sustainable and the underlying mechanisms including social & psychological factors. Due to the transnational approach in STEPPING STONES, the research results should be of common interest across Europe and in several regions. The tematic focus is on all policy measures that contribute to the research objective to make mobility patterns more sustainable. Policy measures can also be seen as a package of regulating and stimulating measures and/or the use of technology. This research initiative will have its main focus on two aspects: 1. The effective and efficient (combinations of) policy measures to change the choices of mobil- ists in order to realize more sustainable mobility patterns 2. The process to implement effective and efficient policy measures
