Highlights from the USER-CHI replication workshop in Antwerp

How to manage parking of e-vehicles? How to use open data for mobility planning? How to design user-centric and efficient mobility hubs? USER-CHI partners and city practitionners discussed these issues during a fruitful replication worshop in Antwerp, along Eurocities Mobility Forum. 

Co-learning for decarbonisation of urban transport

On 17 November 2022, USER-CHI project held a replication workshop for which representatives from Eurocities members Antwerp, Budapest and Turku shared their good practices on how to plan and integrate user-centric electromobility solutions.

Speakers and topics:

  • Nathalie Neirynck, Mobility and parking policy consultant, City of Antwerp – ‘E-parking management in Antwerp’
  • Stella Aaltonen, Project Manager, City of Turku – ‘Turku’s parking hub and service map: How can open data assist in mobility planning’
  • Andor Háznagy, Innovation Associate, BKK Center for Budapest Transport – ‘Budapest’s mobility hubs and integration of electromobility solutions’

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Divided in three groups, the participants discussed how cities can integrate electromobility in their local strategies and what are the success factors, challenges, and potential for replicability of existing solutions.

The success factors identified for the solutions presented revolved around the capacity to involve the relevant partners, including private companies (e-scooter companies, carsharing companies, etc.) at an early stage and understand their goals and constraints. The discussion also opened on participants sharing their own local experiences and solutions as well as the obstacles they met and managed to overcome.
