Let's Meet Virtually


Hamburg is one of the most important business locations in Germany and the host of the ITS World Congress 2021. A growing population, increasing freight traffic, and rising numbers of commuters lead to an increased demand for mobility. In view of spatially and economically limited opportunities, the key to success lies in greater transport efficiency and better capacity utilization of transport routes. Hamburg's aim is to use the opportunities offered by digitalization for mobility and transport and to demonstrate this transformation in its role as a model city for future, sustainable and integrated mobility and logistics. In order to achieve these goals, the City of Hamburg has developed its own ITS strategy in 2016, thus creating the conditions for further developing Hamburg's transport system using digital technologies.

The City of Hamburg and the Digital Hub Logistic of Hamburg are jointly working to bring together startups, corporates, science, research, and further education in order to stimulate the new process, product, and business model innovations in logistics and mobility. Throughout a vast series of workshops and events, sustainable and innovative ideas for new mobility and logistics products and services are generated. Supported by its corporate partners, amongst them companies such as Volkswagen, DHL or Beiersdorf, the Digital Hub has become the port of call for logistics and urban mobility innovators in Hamburg and northern Germany.

Lublin is a city of young and active people with its 75,000-strong student community, including over 6500 foreign students and 9 universities. Mobility in the City of Lublin is an extremely complex phenomenon requiring an approach based on integrated solutions that combine competence in the field of technology, strategic design, but also the social aspect. The input of the city of Lublin for the Citython edition in Lublin will be to define the challenge, to support TUM with finding jury members and speakers, to organize the external services, and to develop a follow-up plan for working with the winners of Citython Lublin 2021.

During the Citython edition the City of Lublin will collaborate with the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). Every year, more than 6,000 bachelor’s and master’s students and more than 500 doctoral students graduate. UPC fits naturally in the Knowledge Triangle to deliver Higher Education, Research & Technology. Contact with industry has been integrated into their activities and entrepreneurship is supported by different programs that have in mind students, young graduates and faculty members.
