Until 2 October, the Institute for Sustainable Transport (EURIST) and the Hamburg University of Technology will be jointly organising the Hamburg Urban Transport Weeks 2015. International experts in the field of traffic and mobility will be discussing risks and chances of modern urban planning. Patron of the event is the former German Minister of Transport, Professor Kurt Bodewig.
Sustainable Transport in Focus
For three weeks, the major challenges of transport will be tackled. What are holistic long-term policies and the tools in order to change traditional mobility systems and urban development paradigms? How can we effectively integrate transport planning and urban development, providing custom-tailored strategies, including measures for an intelligent combination of adapted technological and non- technological measures? During the three weeks, students from Germany and Europe, as well as employees from urban and transport planning will have the opportunity to learn about new approaches, to discuss, and to develop own ideas for the city of Hamburg, with the winners of the competition being recognised with awards.
Enrollment to events on integrated urban transport, walking, cycling, and urban logistics is open to the general public. The Urban Transport Weeks are organised nonprofit organisation EURIST. Co-operation partner is the TUHH. The German Ministry of the Environment is sponsor of the event, which will be held entirely ini English.
