""The Mobilities.Lab is a hub for the interdisciplinary study of mobilities in contemporary societies. It is part of the Centre for Mobilities Research (CeMoRe), where a distinctive group of scholars from a variety of disciplines - sociology, geography, design, computing, enterpreneurship, applied social science, genomics - work under the leadership of Distinguished Professor John Urry.

The mobilities.lab provides equipment and space for researchers, and its members develop mobile methods to explore the fluxes and flows, mobilties, immobilities and blocked movements of people, objects, information, ideas in contemporary life and to fold scholarly insight into innovation.

Individuals and teams use mobilities.lab to undertake original research, in funded projects, small in-house projects and to explore ideas that would lead to funding bids for research projects. The equipment and lab space are available to colleagues and, under appropriate supervision, to students from any department within Lancaster University.
