In 2017 alone, there were more than 4,000 kilometres of traffic jams on German roads daily, reports the ADAC (General German Automobile Association). Following the judgment of the Federal Administrative Court, driving restrictions may be imposed for reasons of health protection. It is therefore about time to initiate an ecological traffic turn. Regarding this issue, the Flow and Trace final conference will take place in Brussels from 13 to 14 March 2018. The event, named "Decongesting Europe: New Approaches to Freeing our Cities" is organised by Polis, which is a network of European cities and regions working together to develop innovative technologies and policies for local transport.
As part of the event, Dr. Frederic Rudolph (Division Energy, Transport and Climate Policy at the Wuppertal Institute) will be moderating a workshop about "Filling in the Gaps: Research for a Multimodal Future". The session addresses the link between data and policymaking and elaborates recommendations for future research projects.
