What solutions do local and regional authorities need, to meet the needs of the city as well as of the individual transport user in a sustainable way? Which innovations will the research community and industry be able to offer and how can cities both help these innovations to flourish and use them for their own benefit? Which further research is needed in the years to come to address the challenges upon and ahead of us?
These are just some of the questions that will be discussed at this Urban Mobility Workshop, organized on the 18th of October in Paris by the Urban Mobility Working Group of ERTRAC, the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council.
The workshop will bring the research and industry community together with practitioners from cities in need for new transport solutions. Special attention will be paid to the start-up community which has emerged as an important player in introducing new and sometimes disruptive mobility services in cities. Through a fruitful dialogue, the aim is to identify which research and innovation actions are required in the coming years to further shape the urban mobility ecosystem of tomorrow. One of the guest speakers is prof. dr. Imre Keseru and will share his expertise on 'The European Transport and Mobility Forum: Identifying, designing and implementing novel ideas and innovation'.
