as a joint research project of the Universities of Koblenz-Landau, Haute-Alsace, Freiburg, Strasbourg and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the SuMo-Rhine project has been awarded the eucor label. The project supports municipalities on the Upper Rhine in establishing and expanding a cross-border sustainable transport system. On the one hand, the project thus promotes cooperation between universities and municipalities across existing state borders. On the other hand, the project with the municipalities also focuses on border regions and develops appropriate solutions. Find out more about the European Campus.
Dear Sir or Madam, The research project SuMo-Rhine cordially invites you to the 1st Participative Workshop “Municipal Perspectives” of sustainable mobility in the Upper Rhine region.
