Sixth Cycle Highway Academy

This edition of the Cycle Highway Academy focuses on the second half of the CHIPS Life Cycle: how to promote and sell, monitor and evaluate the impact of a cycle highway. Besides a training session, the Cycle Highway Academy is a place where cycle highway experts meet and discuss innovations, new cycle highway tools and share best practices. The tools in the Cycle Highway Academy are low-entry tools, which are easy-to-use and to adopt in several European settings. The Academy is a mix between theory, practice and showing concrete implementations and best practices.
