Main congress topics

Plenaries featured keynote speakers providing content rich and captivating presentations about leading EcoMobility case studies. Topics of plenary sessions were EcoMobile cities around the world; Mainstreaming EcoMobility; Envisioning the future EcoMobile city; and Instruments and business models for EcoMobility.

Parallel sessions were organized into three streams and will detail policy options.

• Bike sharing systems: From policy to infrastructure, from operating systems to business models, participants learned about and discussed the most relevant issues to take into consideration when developing a bike sharing system.

• EcoMobility innovation: Urban transport is facing a tremendous development in terms of technology (e.g., e-mobility, intelligent transportation systems) and services (car sharing, integrated ticketing, etc.) that can support EcoMobility. This session stream enabled participants get in touch with the latest EcoMobility innovations.

• Overcoming barriers: Widespread delivery of EcoMobility requires a number of barriers to be overcome. These barriers are not only physical (e.g., the quality of the interchange between different modes) but also institutional and financial. This stream addressed such challenges.
