We want to invite you to this year’s European Cycling Summit, taking place from September 24 to 26 September in Salzburg.
In an interview with Euractiv, Ross Douglas, CEO of the mobility conference Autonomy, spoke about the developing dynamic between European cities and big US tech firms.
European cities seem to be increasingly wary of US-based companies cashing-in on rapidly evolving transport technologies, and their influence on urban mobility systems.
UITP recently launched its new project Shared Personalised Autonomous Connected vEhicles (SPACE), which aims to put public transport at the very heart of the ongoing developments in the area of autonomous vehicles. The project brings together 45 partners from 18 countries, all of which are UITP members.
EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK is DG MOVE's flagship annual campaign, taking place from 16 - 22 September every year. This year's campaign focuses on the theme of multimodality, with the call to action "Mix and Move!"
Does your city want support in developing a package of measures for a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP)? Is your city or region in the process of elaborating a SUMP? Then apply to join the next round of the SUMP Learning Programme (SLP) from CIVITAS SUMPs-Up!
The application deadline has been extended to 18:00 CET on 23 April.
Up to 40 planning authorities have the chance to participate in SLP 3 and 4, which start in September and December 2018 respectively. Together these two groups of mobility practitioners will form the second Expert Group of SUMP cities.
The European Commission (DG MOVE) has recently commissioned a study to produce guidelines to help promote cycling in the EU. Ricardo Energy & Environment, along with partners TEPR and FGM-AMOR are preparing case studies and guidelines that will foster the implementation of cycling infrastructure (and other) measures that are appropriate to the local context of cities.
