HUPMOBILE Final Seminar on 1st December 2021!

01.12.2021 09:00

For three years, the HUPMOBILE project has focused on providing a holistic approach to sustainable mobility solutions in port cities of the Baltic Sea Region. Partners from cities and infrastructure operators have integrated innovative mobility options for everyday mobility, port logistics, intelligent transportation systems, and multimodal transportation services. We have shared our achievements and lessons learned with fellow mobility and urban planners and other interested stakeholders! This virtual meeting also included insights from mobility and planning professionals in Riga and a storyline of the project to give context for the exciting keynote speakers of the day.

Program of the Seminar

Following the hosts' presentation from the City of Riga, the keynote speakers provided a viewpoint from the Baltic Sea Region. Then we have embarked on a journey through the HUPMOBILE practice, where project partners shared their findings, insights, and experience in urban mobility planning in port cities.
