USER-CHI peer learning programme is open – become a Berlin fellow city!
USER-CHI is an industry-powered, city-driven and user-centric project that co-creates and demonstrates e-Mobility solutions in 5 connecting nodes of the Mediterranean and Scandinavian-Mediterranean TEN-T network: Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (ES), Berlin (DE), Budapest (HU), Rome (IT) and Turku (FI). These are also known as the USER-CHI demonstrators.
Through our USER-CHI peer learning programme, we are recruiting fellow cities willing to learn, exchange and develop their e-Mobility plans based on the experience and lessons learned of the USER-CHI demonstrators. Opportunities for peer learning with all demonstrator cities will be made public throughout the end of 2021.
We are now recruiting 2 cities to become Berlin fellow cities.
Why become a fellow city?
- Do you want to learn about the Berlin model, a successful approach for the deployment of new electric charging points in the city?
- Do you wish to exchange with the Berlin cluster’s experts on how to motivate private users to shift to more sustainable and alternative, electric ways of transport?
- Would you like hands-on experience on successful incentives for commercial and e-car sharing fleets to become electric?
- Would you like to explore how you can join forces with housing companies to make electric mobility an appealing alternative for residents?
You will have the chance to discuss this and much more by joining the USER-CHI peer learning programme and becoming a Berlin fellow city!
