Ten Student Teams Selected by PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN Start Competition on Theme of Urban Mobility
From April 10 to September 1, ten teams of three students will participate in a competition on the theme of facilitating mobility in urban environments. The competition was launched as part of the "Institute of the Town in Movement" created by PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN.

PSA Peugeot Citroën received more than 35 applications for the competition. Selected groups include students from: the Institut d'Etudes Politiques; the Collège d'Europe in Bruges, Belgium; the Institut d'Urbanisme in Paris; the Ecole d'Architecture in Versailles; the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce in Paris; the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Ingénieurs en Mécanique Energétique in Valenciennes; the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées; the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales; and the University of Besançon.

The competition requires analysis of mobility systems in various European cities, including Bilbao, Bologna, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Lisbon, Paris, Prague, Rennes, Utrecht and Zurich. In addition to studying the geographical, urban planning, institutional and economic aspects of each city, students will describe existing mobility systems, determine the strengths and weakness of these models and propose innovative solutions that can be applied in any urban environment.

Each team will be allocated a Peugeot Partner or a Citroën Berlingo and a budget of EUR 10,000 to complete its analysis. Winners will be selected on the basis of a report submitted with photo illustrations of the city studied. Each participant will receive EUR 1,500 and members of the winning team will receive a Peugeot 106 or a Citroën Saxo at award ceremonies to be held during the World's Fair in Hannover on October 13.

With this competition, PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN intends to integrate the vision of young Europeans in the future work of the "Institute of the Town in Movement", which will be operational in June.
