The “Intelligent Mobility” expert community run by the Transport Systems Catapult (TSC) and partner Zyncd, IMExchange, has launched a Community Rewards Scheme.
It’s aimed at IMExchange’s most active users, rewarding them for sharing knowledge and encouraging discussion amongst global transport professionals.
The organisers say a key feature of the IMExchange is that users earn professional reputation points for each contribution – raising their visibility and professional reputation amongst the community. As points accrue, users will be able to qualify for gold or silver level membership awards, giving them free access to events, professional support and opportunities for self-promotion. Top contributors will also receive an IPad.
Discussing the rewards programme, TSC Chief Technology Officer Dr Paul Zanelli said, “The user rewards are designed to stimulate a higher level of knowledge sharing amongst the transport community whilst providing users who actively engage with valuable opportunities to further their career and increase their reputation in the industry. Our ultimate goal is to enable the industry to create smarter and connected solutions by enabling open knowledge sharing. We believe that the rewards program will help us achieve this.”
The user rewards will be announced annually and are sponsored by TSC and Zyncd.
The top three Gold members will win:
- An iPad (courtesy of Zyncd Limited)
- The Gold Bundle from Transport Systems Catapult, which includes:
- An opportunity to speak or demonstrate your work (research, thesis, product, visualization etc.) at a TSC event
- A LinkedIn recommendation by a TSC executive or ambassador
- A VIP Invitation to the annual festival of Transport Systems Catapult at the IMovation Centre, Milton Keynes
- A mentoring session with a TSC expert
- Access to various TSC events and networking opportunities
IMExchange is a free Q&A community designed to connect Transport Professionals, academics and developers seeking to obtain and share skills and knowledge about intelligent mobility, by facilitating short exchanges of opinions and informal advice online. They say their objective is it to “break the silo thinking” within individual transport modes and enable experts to discuss and develop integrated, End-to-End solutions.
