Registrations open for new events in the context of LOW-CARB project


There are two upcoming events organised by LOW-CARB to present and transfer collected research results and lessons learned from pilots. The events are both going to take place online and registrations are open from now on.

The first webinar on LOW-CARB’s pilots and innovations for low-carbon mobility in cities and regions will take place on 21 October 2020 from 10 - 11.15 am CEST.

In this webinar, the Interreg LOW-CARB project will showcase the implementation of its innovative pilots that advance low-carbon mobility and sustainable mobility planning in Central Europe. The unique contexts of Central European regions give it the potential to leapfrog its way into the greener sustainable futures and can lead the rest of Europe by setting a good example. This webinar presents five of LOW-CARB’s pilots in Leipzig (GER), Skawina & Kraków (PL), Koprivnica (HR), and Szeged (HU). They are:• “Reachie” – The accessibility heatmap for mobility management in the Leipzig North Area (Carsten Schuldt, LVB) • Testing a hybrid bus line in Skáwina (Maciej Zacher, City of Skáwina) • New e-bike sharing schemes in Kraków (Lukasz Franek, ZTP Kraków) • Smart bus station in Koprivnica (Nebojša Kalanj, City of Koprivnica) • New measures for data-based public transport planning (Ádám Németh, SZKT) Speakers will present their pilots and its added value, and briefly discuss how other cities or public transport companies in Europe can benefit from it.
