The European Commission has launched an online tool to help analyse the effectiveness of transport innovation in delivering the EU’s energy and transport strategy.
The agenda items include a detailed examination of the Presidency draft on the digitalisation of transport.
Against the backdrop of the European Digital Transport Days, the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU) is organising an event to kick off the campaign for the next edition of the European ATM Master Plan – the common roadmap for modernising Europe’s air traffic management (ATM) system.
Today the European Commission launches the 16th EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK, a flagship campaign for Mobility and Transport, taking place from 16 to 22 September 2017. More than 2000 towns from Europe and beyond have organised events to encourage residents to try out alternatives to traditional means of transport, generally culminating in a Car-Free Day. This is in line with the theme of this year campaign: ‘Clean, shared and intelligent mobility’ and its call-to-action ‘Sharing gets you further’. At the same time, the Commission is launching a call for applications for this year’s award for sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP Award). This year’s award focuses on shared mobility to promote intelligent and clean transport, the same theme as EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK.
The European Commission organises the annual European Tourism Forum in close cooperation with the presidency of the Council of the European Union every second half of the year. This year, the ‘European tourism forum’ is co-organised with the Estonian presidency and takes place in Tallinn from 18 to 19 October 2017. There will be an exchange of views with several institutions. These include public authorities at EU, national and regional level, European associations, international organisations, industry representatives and other stakeholders.
The agenda includes an item on smart and sustainable mobility.
Join our discussion on how to bridge the gap between supply and demand for smart urban mobility solutions in Amsterdam on 27 September. Speakers from BMW Startup Garage, Rotterdam Mobility Lab, and Mastercard will share what they look at when investing in or trialling new services. We need your expert opinion to identify challenges and good practices, with a focus on business cases and finance. The goal is to foster partnerships between public authorities, transport operators, small and large companies and investors in order to overcome market fragmentation and uncertainties over both demand and supply.
The Committee is being consulted from 12 September 2017 to 17 September 2017 on Batch 33 for 1 project, call H2020-MG-2017-INEA-SingleStage.
The draft opinion has been re-issued.
