In an age where more and more experiments are conducted at city level, upscaling is a much debated topic. A bike sharing system may function well for a limited group of passengers, but what is the impact of this system on mobility on a city level?
During this meeting you will be informed of recent and relevant insights concerning the upscaling of those components of experiments that have proven successful. Furthermore, based on experiences in cities such as Amsterdam, Utrecht, Zwolle, Eindhoven, Groningen, Den Bosch, Maastricht, Brussel, Graz, and Bellinzona, you will be given practical tools to deal with these challenges in your own work environment.
The Forum is a unique collaboration between four scientific consortia:
Location: Oudaen, Utrecht. The working language for this meeting is English.

- 10.00 Sharing & Reflecting
During our morning session the four projects mentioned above will present their findings regarding the upscaling of mobility experiments. Feel free to join the discussion!
- 13.00 Lunch
- 14.00 Keynote
Researcher Jos van den Broek of the Rathenau Instituut explains what we can learn from other sectors, such as water management and agriculture, when it comes to upscaling experiments.
- 15.00 Upscaling clinic
With help of an expert panel you will tackle practical challenges concerning upscaling mobility experiments. These challanges are presented by professionals with practical experience on a city level.
