REDICYM research is based on the following fundamental principles:
- Interdisciplinary working: coordinated cross-functional working and research.
- Scientific rigour: commitment to excellence.
- Scientific transfer of results: events and conference promotion.
- Contribution to society: commitment to improving female cycling.
- Industrial transfer: proven ability to transfer results to industry.
To achieve these principles REDICYM methods include:
- Expert and user panels: working sessions, guided by REDICYM representatives, aimed at drawing relevant ideas and/or study needs to establish further research guidelines or action plans.
- Area-related working groups: group of experts led by an area coordinator in charge of directing specific actions previously defined.
- Online meetings: virtual meetings to simplify coordination among network members.
- Working sessions: face-to-face sessions to update the scope of the proposed project objectives, to redirect efforts in those areas that require it and to establish new lines, if necessary.
- Organization of congresses and events.
- Invigoration of research projects: promotion of research, progress and transfer projects, created after detecting necessities in work forums.
