7th Annual Meeting of the Cycling Research Board

CRB is coming to Wuppertal!

Oct 25-27, 2023

Join to discuss the “hill we ride” to find solutions to practical and research challenges

The Cycling Research Board is coming to Germany for the first time for its 7th Annual Meeting from October 25th to 27th, 2023. We invite contributions from diverse disciplinary and cultural backgrounds to better understand the role of cycling in changing mobility systems. This year’s meeting is organized by the Chair of Bicycle Traffic at the University of Wuppertal.

Sign-up for the CRB mailing list to get notified when the call opens!

Conference Vision

We invite a variety of perspectives, especially from early career researchers. Participants are encouraged to submit work, even early stage work, that reflects a variety of inter- and transdisciplinary topics, including:

  • Creative approaches to promoting cycling
  • Innovative methodologies to study cycling
  • Using cycling to challenge/rethink assumptions about mobility
  • Critical approaches to transport technology and innovation

Wuppertal is near to several large cities which regularly host large international trade fairs and booking a room early is strongly recommended. There are no blocks of rooms or CRB conference discounts available, however the organization team suggests the following local hotels:

If you are interested in cycling in Wuppertal, a new bike sharing system is expected to be launched in Wuppertal this year and there are several shops which rent bicycles at a fee. This website will be updated with more information about these local options you may consider using if you would like to experience our city as a cyclist.

Coffee, tea, cold drinks, snacks, and lunch will be provided on all three conference days. Contributors are also invited to a welcome reception with light snacks and drinks as well as a conference dinner on the first two nights of the conference.

The CRB Annual Meeting is overseen by our international, interdisciplinary Steering Committee, managed by the Urban Cycling Institute in Amsterdam, NL.
