About Stuttgart
Stuttgart is the capital of the southwest German state of Baden-Württemberg. It is probably
best known as an important centre of the German car industry but it is also a high-tech hub
and has been involved in a range of projects around sustainable mobility. In order that you can
learn something about our hosting city, we have gathered together local experts on parking
management, non-motorised transport, open data, electric mobility and public transport
organisation to give you a close-up look at Stuttgart.

About this workshop series
The TIDE project is developing a methodology to enable the systematic transfer of transport
innovations from one city or region to another. This is the first in a series of three TIDE
workshops that will demonstrate the method. Participants representing nearly 20 countries
from across Europe will be present in Stuttgart for an exchange of knowledge and experience
on TIDE’s five thematic areas. Participants will also learn about analysing the impact of
measures and about TIDE’s transfer methodology.

Cluster 1: pricing
Birgit Wöhrle was described in the Stuttgarter-Nachrichten newspaper
as “giving an impersonal system a personal touch and a human face” in
the way she dealt head-on with the parking problems in Stuttgart
West during the introduction of a new parking management system.

Location: Room Z.180
Cluster 2: nonmotorised transport
A walking audit tour of public spaces in Stuttgart. Audits were part of
the Better by Foot project that was carried out in Stuttgart with the
aims of better recognising pedestrian traffic in local politics and
administration and creating better conditions for walking and
sojourning in the city and better citizen participation.
Wolfgang Forderer, City of Stuttgart
Location: city centre (meet in foyer for travel by public transport)
Cluster 3: network
and traffic
There are apps for just about everything today, but who is using them.
What are they good for? What is the role of cities in open data? How is
data accessed? What kind of (transport-related) apps are available?
Who uses apps? Whose job is it to develop apps?
Nick Hounsell, Transport Research Group
Location: Room G.124
Cluster 4: electric
A tour of Fraunhofer’s Mobility Innovation Lab and the Virtual Reality
Lab, a demonstration of the electric sportscar Lampo3, a visit to the
institute’s charging infrastructure and electric fleet and introduction to
a project building up a Micro-Smart-Grid for charging infrastructure.
Michael Haag and Steffen Raiber, Fraunhofer Institute
Location: meet in auditorium for tour of Fraunhofer Institute
The group will visit the Stuttgart regional public transport organisation,
which has been in existence since 1978. Questions to be addressed
and discussed include how the VVS was created, financing a public
transport body, finding consensus among members, contracting out
services and market research. A short tour of the network will follow.
