European Urban Mobility 2014
European Urban Mobility 2014 is part of a strategic effort to establish a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) in Urban Mobility 2018. The conference stands out with its holistic approach to urban mobility, taking stock of the state of the art and the developments leading us to a future where people, goods and services move into, through and from cities effortlessly, seamlessly and sustainably. It addresses the critical issue of innovation and how we can achieve effective long-term development in collaboration across geographic, disciplinary and stakeholder boundaries.
The conference is built on the belief that the solutions needed to achieve world-leading urban mobility systems are too holistic for any one actor to develop, deploy or sustain alone. During the two days, stakeholders from industry, academia, and the public sector will be brought together to share, discuss, and align agendas towards 2018.
It is also the final annual conference of SAGE (Safe and Green Road Vehicles in Europe), a network of regional research driven automotive clusters working together to strengthen regional capacity and international collaboration within transport research and innovation. The SAGE project has been a pilot case for how closer cooperation between stakeholders within as well as between regions can strengthen capacity and increase competitiveness.
The event is free of charge and is organized in collaboration between SAGE and GRACE, a European consortium across five countries founded in 2010 with the mission to establish a mobility KIC. Both consortia share the belief that the KIC instrument, under the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), will allow Europe to drive innovation, create balanced openness among urban mobility partners, facilitate common standards and interoperability, and align stakeholder agendas.
