5th October 2023 | 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM  | EINS, Ernst-Reuter-Platz 1, 10587 Berlin

How can we solve the many mobility challenges facing our cities?

This co-creative conference will address the most relevant and pressing issues of urban mobility in terms of transport systems, logistics, health & wellbeing, and urban environment. Researchers from TU Berlin will have the opportunity to connect and network with regional science, innovation & business stakeholders and policy makers. In collaborative workshops participants can actively discuss future developments for Berlin and explore possibilities for cooperation. 

The conference is organized by TU Berlin's EU Office and Center for Entrepreneurship - both part of Department V for Research and Technology Transfer.

As TU Berlin has recently joined EIT Urban Mobility, participants will be able to learn more about how to get involved with interesting activities and opportunities within this dynamic European initiative.
