Foreword

Since 2009 the Department of Geosciences and Geography at the University of Helsinki has had a research group dedicated to studying spatial accessibility questions in the Helsinki region (http://www.helsinki.fi/science/accessibility/). During the past years, the MetropAccess-project has been funded by the Helsinki Metropolitan Region Urban Research Program (Katumetro). Alongside with active research and methodological development, the group has communicated its results and ongoing work through several seminars and courses.
During autumn 2014 the MetropAccess-project organized an intensive course entitled Analysing multimodal accessibility and mobility in urban environments for PhD and master students. The course aimed at familiarizing the students with the current topics, theories and methods of spatial accessibility research in urban environments. The course consisted of lectures held by the MetropAccess researchers and visiting speakers from other research institutes, a private company and city planning. One day was dedicated to hands-on exercises that introduced the open data sources and analysis tools developed by MetropAccess. The course also included a minisymposium open for everyone, where Rein Ahas (University of Tartu) and Anders Larsson and Erik Elldér (University of Gothenburg) presented their mobility-related research. One specific goal of the course was to introduce the students to the academic dissertation tradition and thus, the course ended at the PhD defence of Maria Salonen.
This report consists of two parts. The first one includes the Lectio precursoria given by Maria Salonen at the beginning of her defence. The speech introduces her thesis topic but at the same time it explains why the themes tackled during the course and in this report are important and topical. The second part of this report is a collection of course reports written by the course participants. Each group of participants selected an accessibility- or mobility related topic and studied it using the tools and data introduced during the course. The outcome of the group works presents an interesting collection of insights into multimodal accessibility questions in Greater Helsinki: the reader is invited to dig deeper into the topics of spatial accessibility to swimming pools, museums, Kela-services, grocery stores, urban parks, and water recreation environments.
