Congress on the opportunities for changing and managing mobility in an ageing society

Conference flyer

On 15 and 16 September 2008 the AENEAS project started its activities with the organisation of this very successful event. Over the course of two days participants discussed issues such as:

  • What do older passengers need?

  • How can target-group orientation produce a win-win situation?

  • Which concepts foster multi-modal mobility?

  • How is energy-efficient mobility encouraged?

The event was organised by the AENEAS partners ZGB and Salzburg AG. This page will offer you the full conference programme (280-Kbyte PDF) and you can download all presentations as well as pictures from the event. You are also encouraged to visit the conference page at ZGB (in German), which also includes the conference reports and more pictures.
