The meeting members were inspired by the moderator Dr Ulf Eriksson, who is an expert in environmental determinants of cycling and their effect on public health. Nowadays Dr Eriksson is a researcher and traffic consultant at Trivector Traffic and serves as project manager for Physical Activity Through Sustainable Transport Approaches (PASTA), a four year long EU-project with 14 partners (e.g. WHO, Oxford University) and 12 000 participants. The participants also received a presentation about the project of “School Chance”, an Interreg project about school mobility, led by the city of Girona, with participation from Eurotowns partners Gävle & Reggio Emilia.
After two days of conference the members ended by up by an engagement to develop together a new project idea about monitoring cyclists. Further research will be done to find additional partners and the opportunity to make a common application for European funding.
