6th European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP)
The 6th edition of the European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans will be held on Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 June 2019 in Groningen, The Netherlands. The focus of the conference is on providing support to sustainable and active cities within the SUMP context, i.e. how to make cities more walkable and cycle-friendly.
The European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans is Europe's leading annual event for all those involved in putting the SUMP concept into practice. It serves as a forum for policy makers, local authorities, urban transport planners, academics, NGOs and other mobility professionals. The event offers opportunities to network, debate key issues and to exchange ideas on sustainable urban mobility planning. Attendance is free of charge. The 2018 edition in Nicosia attracted over 500 participants.
The conference is co-funded by the European Commission in cooperation with the Municipality of Groningen.
IMPACT>MOBILITY aims to unite the urban transportation ecosystem to deliver on-demand low-emission mobility services and create a sustainable business model for its emerging players.
Europe is undergoing a revolution in urban mobility, as cities outlaw ICE vehicles to meet ambitious zero-emission targets, whilst working to meet the evolving needs of the on-demand consumer.
From Mobility as a Service and final mile logistics to public transportation and E-mobility, data will be the critical enabler bringing together fragmented stakeholder groups and ushering in a new era of urban transportation. Data will be the critical enabler bringing together fragmented stakeholder groups and ushering in a new era of urban transportation.
Join executive leaders from stakeholders across the value chain for two days of focused content to discuss, debate and shape the future of urban mobility.
Urban Transport 2019
The International Conference on Urban Transport and the Environment has successfully been reconvened for 25 years, always attracting a wide international spread of delegates.
The continuing requirement for better urban transport systems and the need for a healthier environment has added to the increasing success of this annual meeting, which attracts international delegates from many different countries. Innovative systems, new approaches and original ideas need to be thoroughly tested and critically evaluated before they can be implemented in practice, which highlights the importance of the meeting. Moreover, there is a growing need for integration with telecommunications systems and IT applications in order to improve safety, security and efficiency. The Meeting also addresses the need to solve important pollution problems associated with urban transport in order to achieve a healthier environment.
The variety of topics covered by the conference reflects the complex interaction of the urban transport systems with their environment and the need to establish integrated strategies.
CIVITAS Forum Conference 2019
The CIVITAS Forum Conference 2019 will be held in Graz, Austria, from 2-4 October 2019. The 17th edition of Europe's top sustainable urban mobility event will gather the leading figures in the field from across the continent and beyond.
This varied group of city representatives, practitioners, policymakers and academics will debate and analyse the most pressing mobility topics and witness the pioneering solutions bringing cleaner, better transport to Europe.
Graz is an ideal place to see the intelligent application of technological solutions together with a citizen-focused mobility vision. It is also where the first Forum took place in 2003, and since then mobility in Graz, like in many cities across Europe, has changed significantly. Considering the changes that have taken place, the CIVITAS Forum 2019 has chosen to go 'back to the future' and look at the interplay between new technology and classic mobility solutions in the present day. Alongside this, thematic sessions will focus on the most urgent mobility topics, and take-up and transfer sessions will enable participants to get hands-on with cutting-edge urban mobility tools and see methods in action.
