Mobile2020 has ended
Our project "More biking in small and medium sized towns of Central and Eastern Europe by 2020" (mobile2020) has ended. Read about our approach and achievements in our brochures "gaining momentum" and "keeping balance" or dive deeper into utility cycling with the mobile2020 handbook.
With great pleasure the mobile2020 consortium invited to the final event of the project. Co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Programme of the European Union, mobile2020 aimed to develop and promote urban cycling in small and mid-size cities in 11 countries in Central and Eastern Europe. The final event marked not only the end of the mobile2020 project but also hosted the project managers of the most notable cycling projects implemented in the region in the last five years. They presented success stories of past projects and helped define a path for the future.
The conference was also accessible via a live-stream.
