Car Sharing Campout in Paris

Organised as part of the STARS project, the Car Sharing Campout took place in Paris from 14-15 October. As to forge synergies and enable more high-profile participants to attend, the Campout was sandwiched between two other mobility conferences in Europe: it followed the Shared Mobility Rocks conference in Brussels (8 October) and was part of the lead-up to the 2019 Autonomy & Urban Mobility Summit in Paris (16-17 October).

Over 25 speakers and more than 70 participants 

Gathering more than 70 participants and over 25 speakers, the Car Sharing Campout aimed to tackle some of the challenges cities are facing in their car sharing programmes. Bringing together key automotive players, mobility researchers and organisations working to improve future challenges in mobility, the two-day Campout included state-of-the-art innovation workshops to help create breakthroughs for cities. Workshops allowed participants to more fully understand practical issues such as how car sharing business models work, how car sharing can be expanded to rural areas, and how transport has particular impacts on women. In addition, best practice examples and lessons learned from cities across Europe were presented on day one while day two featured speakers from major automotive industry players, as well as several startups in the mobility ecosystem:


5 cities part of the Camp

On Day 2, the Camp itself allowed to help 5 cities (Milan, Carouge, Budapest, Bremen & Sofia) solve real challenges they are facing in implementing their car sharing programmes. Working in small groups, the city representatives presented their cases in order to share innovation ideas and develop concrete solutions that meet their needs.
