The focus of the workshop will be on shift and change from transport into sustainable mobility concept based on more energy efficient and cleaner modes. We will explore how to develop a modern infrastructure decreasing pressure on our environmental assets, protecting biodiversity and diminish demands for water and land, and discuss relevant and challenging questions and concerns of the future of the transport. The participants will come from different backgrounds: European, national and local policy-makers, academics, economists, practitioners and exponents of civil society organizations.

The workshop offers:
  • easy access to cutting-edge research findings on sustainable mobility and economic growth,
  • a networking opportunity with policy makers, an internationally rewarded research group and top scholars from all over Europe,
  • the opportunity to learn innovative forms and methods of effective knowledge brokerage,
  • an exploration and visualisation of contradictions and synergies of sustainable mobility and economic growth in an easily understandable way.

This workshop will be carried out within the DG Research funded project RESPONDER which began a few months ago (for details please consult our website: www.scp-responder.eu).
