A summary of the event, including highlights, is available here: http://eurocities.eu/eurocities/news/Highlights-from-the-Burgas-mobility-forum-WSPO-B4KM5T
Do you want to understand how the Commission’s proposal for new vehicle models equipped with advanced safety features (advanced emergency braking, lane-keeping assist system or pedestrian and cyclists' detection systems) could change your work on safety at city level (Working Group on Safe & Active travel)?
Do you want to discuss with fellow city representatives how CO2 reductions can be achieved by improving labelling for tyres and producing batteries? Are you curious to know how Europe could become a world leader for fully automated and connected mobility systems (Working Group on Smart & connected mobility)?
This September in Burgas, 100 city representatives will use the EUROCITIES mobility forum to investigate these questions and more.
Over the past 12 months, the European Commission has taken several policy initiatives aiming at helping the EU transport sector to become future-proof, more sustainable and innovative. Building on the ‘Europe on the Move’ packages from May and November 2017, the European Commission has recently put forward a third set of measures, in May 2017, to allow all Europeans citizens to benefit from safer, cleaner, and smarter mobility solutions. The initiatives proposed in the 3rd mobility package include an integrated policy for road safety, the first ever CO2 standards for heavy-duty vehicles, an action plan for the development of batteries and a strategy on connected and automated mobility.
Burgas, a fellow city in Sharing Cities, is already in the process of beginning to replicate, and was voted the best Bulgarian city to live in in 2017. Come along and be part of the move to smart mobility!
Registration will open shortly on this page: http://eurocities.eu/eurocities/calendar/events_list/Autumn-Mobility-Forum-in-Burgas-WSPO-AYRHFU.
