Past event

This year's midterm conference of Interreg BSR HUPMOBILE project was originally going to be held in Hamburg. However, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, like many organisations, we are unable to hold it as a face-to-face conference. Instead, we are organising two short virtual events on 26 and 27 November 2020. The online events will welcome all those who are interested in taking part in a discussion about the future of mobility in the Baltic Sea Region. During these two days, we will focus on the concept of Fusion Mobility and whether COVID-19 has an impact on the development of sustainable mobility.

Join us on November 26 to learn about Fusion Mobility and best practices from similar projects. The keynote speech will be provided by Mr. Manfred Neun, former chairman of the European Cyclists' Federation, who introduces the components of the Fusion Mobility. The theme will be further discussed with presentations of the best practices from similar projects.

The second event on November 27 will bring discussions on the effects of COVID-19 on mobility. Dr. Angela Francke from the University of Dresden, who was one of the first to conduct surveys on mobility behaviour in Coronavirus times in Germany, will provide a keynote speech. The question "Censorship or Chance" will be discussed in breakout rooms.
