Ensuring the safety of participants and residents and the way to and back, and during big events is a challenge for event and mobility planners. Especially in cities, where space is limited and the mobility network is complex under normal circumstances. In this context, crowd analysis and simulation models provide a powerful tool to increase efficiency, safety and reliability of mobility options during big events. In order to discuss and explore these alternatives, the seventh workshop of the Driven by Data Workshop Series will address current innovations in the field of crowd simulation and analysis.

A keynote will outline the current challenges in organizing safe and efficient mobility for big events, taking the example of UEFA EURO 2024. Beyond that, four European research and innovation projects will give an insight into new technologies for crowd simulation and analysis that can improve event management and safety. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss relevant challenges and possible solutions and network with speakers and other participants.

You are invited to join and share your knowledge and ideas during the event. We look forward to your participation!

Register for this online workshop by sending an email with the subject "EU-Workshop 7/24" to mFUND@bmdv.bund.de, or using the link posted in the Driven by Data LinkedIn group. You will receive a link to a virtual meeting room shortly before the event.

About the online mFUND-Workshop series “Driven by Data - The mFUND workshop series about mobility innovation in Europe”

In 2021 the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) started the workshop series "Data Innovations for Smart Mobility in Europe" as part of the mFUND activities to foster knowledge exchanges and networking between stakeholders from the political sphere, business, user groups and research communities in Germany and abroad. In 2023 the series is back under a new name: “Driven by Data”.

Driven by data is motivated by the opportunities data can provide to mobility systems in Europe. Data use can be applied in all parts and stages of the system, ranging from more user-centric, environment-friendly and inclusive mobility planning to more efficient use of resources and increased resilience systems. In this series, speakers from all around Europe will give an overview of their projects activities, ideas and challenges, serving as inspiration for discussions with participants. The intention is to keep it simple and straightforward, further providing a platform to knowledge exchange and the creation of new partnerships between European stakeholders.
