SUMP Conference 2018 Nicosia

Registration has just opened for the European Commission's 5th European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) on 14-15 May in Nicosia, Cyprus.

This 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 and academics across Europe to network, debate key issues and exchange ideas on sustainable urban mobility planning. Attendance is free of charge.

In line with the European Commission having dedicated the year 2018 to the promotion of multimodality, the theme of this year's conference is multimodality, with a focus on the integration of transport modes and combined mobility solutions for passengers and freight in cities and regions.

The conference is co-funded by the European Commission in cooperation with the Municipality of Nicosia and the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works of the Republic of Cyprus.

European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc will address the opening plenary session.

Representatives of local and regional authorities, policy makers, urban mobility planners, academics and other urban mobility professionals are especially welcome.

The conference will be held in a city that offers a unique blend of history and modern lifestyle. Nicosia's versatile inner-city architecture from different eras—Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian, Ottoman—provides a stage for vibrant, contemporary city life.

Last year's European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans in Dubrovnik attracted 450 participants.
