The European research project STARS (www.stars-h2020.eu) has been analysing the potential of car sharing for sustainable mobility. The project seeks to widen its horizon by linking to experiences from other parts of the world such as Asia, North America and the motherland of car sharing: Switzerland. This event, held in Bremen, will be the place to be to get a holistic overview of experiences and approaches of car sharing not only in Europe, but also of slightly different approaches and societal and transport frameworks in Asia and North America.
The discussions and talks will give you fresh insights and ideas on how car sharing can maximise benefits in terms of congestion mitigation, environmental footprint, social inclusion and opportunities for different industrial sectors.
Why Bremen? The city is at the forefront of shared mobility. Car sharing has been integrated into urban renewal and new developments for many years and represents a practical example for the research carried out in STARS.
Speakers will include, among others, the illustrious Susan Shaheen from the University of California – Berkley, Arnd Bätzner from Mobility Car Sharing Suisse, Lewis Chen form the City of Singapore and Gunnar Nehrke from the German Carsharing Association (Bundesverband CarSharing e. V.).
