International Seminar: Urban Mobility Solutions For Liveable Cities: The Challenge Of Low Emission Zones

International Seminar Urban Mobility ( Escuela Ingenieros Caminos, Canales y Puertos, Retiro Building )

The International Seminar on Urban Mobility was celebrated in Madrid 6, 7 and 8 of October in the Escuela de Ingenieros de Caminos, Canales y Puertos (Bulding Retiro).  The seminar consisted of a theorical and a practical part.

There were lectures given by speakers coming from different universities that collaborate in the protocommunity EElisa on-the-MOVE, such as Lya Lugon from ENPC (Paris), Hande Demirel from ITU (Istambul), and Ali Jamal from BME (Budapest). Speakers coming from the UPM and stakeholders like Transyt, TEMA Ingeniería and Instituto Carlos III also took part.

In addition to this, there was a Technical visit to Madrid LEZ (Central District), a walking tour through the Madrid air quality monitoring network and pedestrian areas, such as Sol square.

As well as this, the participants from BME, ITU, FAU and UPM worked in 3 groups focusing  on different areas in Madrid LEZ (Central District): Ronda de Atocha, Calle Atocha and Paseo del Prado. First, they analyzed the different strategic points, combining field work, official data and cartography, resulting in a SWOT analysis that they later used to propose multidisciplinary solutions to improve the case study areas.

The 3 teams made a final presentation of their proposed solution. The winner group was the Paseo del Prado (Group 2), due to the real proposal of giving more space pedestrians and making more information available to citizens by means of an integrated information hub.
