Science Meets City: May 20, 2022 (Save the date)

Urban Mobility Transformation: Future Visions Today we are facing multiple challenges on how we are living and the way we use mobility. How can cities become more livable? How can urban spaces and urban mobility be designed to be sustainable? The “Science meets City” symposium addresses the viewpoint of science within that area and is em-
bedded in the polisMOBILITY trade fair in Cologne.

The event focuses on modern urban infrastructure development, innovative mobility concepts and devices, as well as the collaboration between science, cities and citizens. Hamburg, Kyoto, Liège, Paris and Rotterdam serve as guiding examples focusing on the most pressing questions in urban mobility. A mixture of impulses and personal discussions creates the ideal basis for new ideas, contacts and cooperations.
