Professionals across Europe interested in FLOW results at workshops organised by FEHRL

In the last months of the project, FEHRL has organised workshops in France and Lithuania to present the results to key decision-makers.

On 23rd April 2018, FEHRL Secretary General Thierry Goger presented the main challenges of the mobility of the 21st century as well as some tangible solutions for soft transport modes (cycling and walking) to 30 French local policy-makers in the region of Saint Malo, France. The city mayors were very happy to learn about the short to medium-term innovation in the field of transport and transport infrastructure. They were also positively surprised about the qualitative and quantitative evidence of the benefit of walking and cycling to mobility not only in cities but also in peri-urban and rural areas. 

Another FLOW workshop was organised on 30th April 2018 at Vilnius Gediminas Technical University in Vilnius, Lithuania to discuss how walking and cycling can help reduce congestion on urban roads. The welcome speech was given by Audrius Vaitkus, director of the Road Research Institute (KTI VGTU). Thierry Goger then presented the future challenges and needs for research and development of transport infrastructure. Participants had a great opportunity to get an overview of the FLOW project results that constitute how walking and cycling can help to reduce congestion. Adewole Adesiyun, FEHRL Deputy Secretary General, shared the FLOW project’s experience and results from six partner cities which have been working with the FLOW created tools over the past three years, applying them to a number of cycling and walking measures.
