> Cycling culture moves

We are honored to welcome you to this year’s European Cycling Summit, taking place from September 24th to 26th in Salzburg.

Cyclists will be at the very center of this event. Our goal for these three days is to shift the focus from infrastructure, technology and administration to humans on bicycles. We would like to provide inspiring impulses for the establishment and improvement of vibrant cycling cultures in cities and municipalities. The European Cycling Summit 2018 is going to host a wide variety of keynotes, panel discussions, paper sessions, interactive formats and an exhibition area. Moreover, excursions and an attractive social program are going to be offered to delegates.

The European Cycling Summit 2018 is a great opportunity to explore Austria’s cycling capital Salzburg and to connect with national and international cycling enthusiasts. Join the event and benefit from a diverse network of experts from academia, administration, interest groups and innovative companies. The participation in the European Cycling Summit is free of charge – you are welcome to register!

Invited talks and peer-reviewed contributions will contribute to a comprehensive conference program. You are still invited to actively contribute to the European Cycling Summit: apply for the photo and video competition and win a holiday trip to Salzburg.

The European Cycling Summit 2018 is the main event this year in a series of Austrian cycling summits, happening annually. International speakers and delegates are invited to Salzburg under the auspices of the Austrian EU precidency. The European Cycling Summit 2018 is hosted by the city and the province of Salzburg in cooperation with the Federal Climate Protection Agency, klimaaktive mobil from the Austrian Ministry of Sustainability and Tourism, and the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology.

We are looking forward to your participation and visit to Salzburg!
