Following the success of a series of ‘cycling webinars’ launched in January 2021, the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform will be back with two new webinars, exploring the potential of bicycles to shape the zero-emission future of urban mobility in Europe.

On 16 September 2021 from 14:00 to 15:30 CET a new cycling cities webinar will take place. It will focus on cargo bikes for the last mile and is designed to engage with experts and learn from practical experiences of cities across the EU.

Policy makers, urban planners and clean mobility managers, will have the chance to discover principles for setting up cargo bike hubs and how to design policy framework for last mile cargo bike deliveries in city centres.  Financial support schemes for the purchase of cargo bikes, strategies to build e-cargo bike fleets and e-cargo bike lease schemes for SMEs will also be showcased.

Topics and speakers include:

  • Dr. Tom Assmann, Researcher at the Otto von Gericke University Magdeburg, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Institute for Logistics and Materials, will shed light on planning principles for cargo bike hubs.
  • Gordana Kolesarič, Senior Adviser at City of Maribor (Slovenia), will speak about last mile urban deliveries by cargo bikes in the Maribor city centre (RESOLVE).
  • Frank Adenstedt, Project Officer at the Landkreis Grafschaft Bentheim (Germany), will illustrate a financial support scheme for the purchase of cargo bikes (PE4TRANS).
  • Hayley Roche, Senior Transport Planner (Cycling, walking and smarter travel), Milton Keynes Council (United Kingdom), will focus on an e-cargo bikes lease scheme for businesses and how e-cargo bikes can help building a greener, more circular and just society (INTENSIFY).
