SMART cycling to meet the Green Deal target!

Despite the difficulties generated by the COVID 19 pandemic, #EURegionsWeek 2020 will offer participants more than 500 digital work sessions to be discovered for three consecutive weeks in October, from 5 to 22 October, covering various topics along the Empowering Citizens thematic priorities; Cohesion and cooperation; and Green Europe.

Worldwide, cycling is considered a game-changer for green transport and mobility. However, there has been an information gap with regard to active mobility such as cycling and walking compared to motorised and public transport because data collection is not regulated or monetised through ticket sales, fuel purchases or vehicle registrations.

In this session we will have Irene McAleese, Co-founder & CSO of See.Sense as speaker from an important innovative company contributing with digital solutions and Syb Tjepkema, Senior Policy Advisor from the City of Zwolle (BITS project partner and a top level cycling city/region in the Netherlands) showing the scale and scope for smart and connected cycling, and Victoire Champenois from the European Commission - Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) highlighting the EC's ambitions for digital services under the EU Green Deal. 
We will demonstrate how smart applications are stimulating cycling and helping to reduce emissions. The session will also have a Q&A session at the end.

BITS project partner Cycling Industries Europe’s CEO Kevin Mayne will moderate the session on Tuesday, 13th October 2020 at 12:30 PM (CET).
