UITP will organise a double session entitled "European cities leading innovation for urban mobility" on October 11th in Brussels in the framework of the EU Week of Regions and Cities
. The objective of the event will be to discuss how transport innovation can address the urban challenges that European cities are facing.
Confronted with a growing demand of mobility, European cities must at the same time address the political goals of healthier, fairer, more integrated and sustainable urban transport. At UITP, “Innovation” and “Sharing” are part of our core values. As such, we would like to invite all interested urban development and mobility actors to participate in our sessions “European cities leading innovation for urban mobility” and reflect on how to make European cities more liveable.
During the first session
, participants will be provided with keynote speeches on how to implement innovation in cities
Building up on this morning session presentations, the afternoon session
will be totally interactive
with the objective to call upon city leaders, mobility providers, practitioners and innovators from traditional and non-traditional mobility sectors to work together to make cities better. Drawing from the Urban Mobility innovation index (UMii) framework, this part of UITP’s session will bring participants to share knowledge and gather insights in small groups
with city representatives, and explore the key enablers of innovation through three dimensions: readiness, deployment and liveability.
