How are Amsterdam, Vienna and Paris shaping the urban mobility of tomorrow? How can commercial transport and urban logistics function both efficiently and environmentally responsibly in a global megacity like Paris, with 11 million inhabitants? What can German metropolises like Hamburg learn from their European neighbors?
In the 5th installment of our series Future Lab Mobility Forum we venture beyond our borders one last time to take a closer look at the situation in Amsterdam, Vienna and Paris. How significant is the topic “urban mobility transformation” for our European neighbors? Who is driving it, and who are the most important proponents in politics and administration, the economy and society?

We will discuss these and other questions with:

  • Mrs. Lizann Tjon, Senior Program Manager of the Smart Mobility Program, City of Amsterdam
  • Mr. Martin Posset, Chief Innovation Officer (Innovation & Policy), thinkport VIENNA
  • Dr. Chloë Voisin-Bormuth, Director of Studies and Research, La Fabrique de la Cité, Paris

The 2020s are a decade marked by groundbreaking changes, especially in the area of urban mobility. In four previous installments of the Future Lab Mobility Forum, the Deutsche Verkehrs-Zeitung and Kühne Logistics University, with the support of numerous experts from politics and research, business and professional associations, have shown how, across Germany, countless innovative projects are rethinking, planning, testing and restructuring the transport of persons and goods in urban areas.

With the 5th Forum and a focus on Europe, the series of public talks will end just in time for the ITS World Congress in Hamburg on October 11, 2021, which will address related topics.

Please join us one last time! 

Please note:

ZuLaMo V will be a live event held on the KLU Campus for up to 100 guests and will also be live streamed as a Zoom Webinar. 

For everyone who wants to join us on the KLU Campus on September 30, 2021: In accordance with current Hamburg regulations ("2G-Optionsmodell"), we only grant Campus access for those who are recovered or fully vaccinated.
