Radomíra Jordová originally studied human sciences at the Palacký University in Olomouc, Czech Republic and dedicated most of her professional life to research into transport policymaking, especially to sustainable mobility issues in urban transport strategies. Since 1998 she joined the Transport Research Centre (CDV), the national research institute where she performed research into active mobility and together with her colleagues developed the National Cycling Strategy of Czech Republic (adopted by the Czech government in 2003). Beside research projects on cycling and walking strategies in urban and rural areas she focused on mobility management topics and their applications in Czech conditions while participating in EU, national and local projects, helping municipalities and relevant organisations to apply the mobility management concept.
She has contributed to crosscutting themes as well, such as mobility patterns and land use for which she led the project on transport and land use harmonisation for the Czech Ministry for Regional Development. She also coordinated horizontal issues in transport for the Czech Ministry of Transport under the Czech presidency of the Council of the EU (2009). During the years of 2008-2010 she worked for the Czech Ministry of Transport at the Department of EU affairs. Since 2010 she returned to research activities and her main projects have been focused on sustainable urban mobility plans (SUMPs) and respective policy-making. Related to that she, together with her mobility team, prepared the National methodology on preparation of SUMPs, certified by the Czech Ministry of Transport. She has also cooperated with municipalities for practical applications. To facilitate the processes and promote sustainable mobility policies in Czech cities, she collaborated with the CIVITAS and EPOMM platforms, established the network of municipalities – the CIVINET Czech and Slovak Republics and took the lead of its Secretariat during first years of operation.
Recently she joined the mobility research team at the Faculty of Social and Economic Studies of J.E.Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic and has been focusing on creation of a tool for Czech cities to help them selecting transport measures suitable for their sustainable goals and local conditions, showing a potential impact and benefits as well. The activity was intended for presentation at the ECOMM 2020.
