The City of Munich hosted the MOVE21 consortium meeting and peer learning visits from 17 to 19 October.
Participants discussed the replication plans presented by the cities of Munich, Bologna and Rome, focusing on key issues such as public-private cooperation, exploitation strategies, governance innovations and the aspect of urban hubs and TEN-T connectivity.
The conference also welcomed insightful contributions from external speakers:
- The consortium was welcomed by Paul Bickelbacher, Member of the City Council of the Landeshauptstadt München.
- Simon Herzog from UnternehmerTUM’s Digital Hub Mobility provided pragmatic insights into turning ideas into reality through public-private cooperation.
- Dr Franziska Kirschner from the City of Munich highlighted the perspectives of the Munich Mobility Strategy 2035.
- Tobias Kieltsch from biyondMiles explained their approach to increasing the efficiency of urban logistics.
- Benjamin Büttner from EIT Urban Mobility stressed the importance of mobility hubs and presented the “Steinhuber” miniblock concept.
Various measures and initiatives in Munich were presented during the peer learning visits, including projects such as a cargo bike logistics hub, a fenced micro-mobility car park and multifunctional mobility hubs.
After two instructive days, the partners went their separate ways. Plans for next year include a return to Oslo, Gothenburg and Hamburg, with a closed review of the measures tested in the three Living Labs, exchanges with replicator cities and, for the first time, the inclusion of an additional pool of external cities wishing to learn more about the MOVE21 approach.
