This upcoming webinar introduces you to and kicks off the next CIVITAS e-course: "How to better integrate urban nodes into TEN-T networks". This interactive learning experience starts on 18 May and runs until 12 June.

The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) aims to create a Europe-wide network of railway lines, roads, inland waterways, maritime shipping routes, ports, airports, and railroad terminals. Given TEN-T's aim to close gaps and remove bottlenecks across this continent-wide transport network, the integration of urban nodes (urban areas) is vital.

The CIVITAS e-course will look at how to go about doing so. Much of its knowledge will be drawn from the NUVit/Vital Nodes methodology. Concluding at the end of 2019, Vital Nodes worked to enable efficient, sustainable freight delivery across TEN-T urban nodes, and developed its own methodology to achieve this.

Participants will have the chance to acquire expert knowledge on the NUVit/Vital Nodes methodology and feedback from a city representative who participated in a Vital Nodes workshop applying this innovative approach.

The webinar will take place on Monday 18 May, from 13:00 - 14:00 CEST.
