On 20 June 2012, 33 urban mobility practitioners followed the invitation by Rupprecht Consult and Austrian Mobility Research (FGM-AMOR) to a Workshop on “Urban mobility in the European Context” in Cologne.The event – which was held in German and co-funded by the European CIVITAS Initiative (<link http: www.civitas.eu _blank>www.civitas.eu) - served a means to exchange information on EU-programmes and strategies for the period 2014-2020. It also offered a chance for city representatives, city associations, research institutions, and companies to discuss a stronger exchange and cooperation among of urban mobility stakeholders from the German language area. Workshop participants confirmed their strong interest in establishing a Network for Urban Mobility Stakeholders from the German language area, i.e. Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and the German-speaking parts of Belgium, Italy, and Switzerland. The idea to establish a German CIVINET similar to the already existing CIVITAS networks CIVINET España y Portugal, CIVINET Francophone, CIVINET Italia, CIVINET Slovenija, CIVINET UK & Ireland and CIVINET Dutch was well-perceived.
