Enabling seamless and sustainable mobility for all
Increasingly, social and environmental trends are posing new challenges to the transport sector in Europe. This paradigm shift in mobility and transport calls for disruptive technologies and multimodal solutions.
Mobility4EU established a Vision and Action plan for the future of transport in Europe in 2030 based on the identification and assessment of societal challenges that will influence future transport demand.
The 2018 European Week of Regions and Cities offers the opportunity for local and city-level governments to showcase their capacity to stimulate economic growth, facilitate job creation and successfully engage in EU cross-border cooperation.

As European policymakers debate the EU transport package, Eurelectric will gather the e-mobility community - from the power source to end users - for a day of lively debates and presentations on e-mobility solutions with real showcases.
Traditional means of transport have entered the digital realm at an exponential rate – redefining modern mobility in the process. Digital connectivity is not only a solution for new efficiency, safety and sustainability standards, but also a regulatory reality. Theory is turning into practice: How will authorities today build the future of tomorrow?
Cleaner, Connected and Competitive: How Can This be the Future for Europe's Freight Transport Networks?
Freight transport is crucial for Europe’s economic activity but it also increases transport fuel consumption and raises CO2 emissions. With road freight transport accounting for 25 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions in the EU, enhancing freight mobility for better connectivity, efficiency, and competitiveness is necessary. Also, embracing innovation by European industries will be important if Europe wants stay on par with the U.S and China during the ongoing transport revolution.
The International Association of Public Transport (Union Internationale des Transports Publics UITP) will organise a double session entitled "European cities leading innovation for urban mobility" on 11 October in Brussels in the framework of the EU Week of Regions and Cities.
