The Transport Area of the Florence School of Regulation is proud to announce that the 18th edition of the European Conference on Mobility Management (ECOMM) is going to take place in Florence from Wednesday, May 7th until Friday, May 9th.
This year, the annual meeting of the European Platform on Mobility Management – ECOMM 2014 Creating a bridge to a green, fair and prosperous mobility management aims at reflecting the possibility for Mobility Management to be a bridge towards new themes. Namely, it will focus on the possible answers to the following questions:
- new mobility concepts can pave the way for a broad introduction of e-mobility?
- creating a new awareness about options to reduce car dependent mobility amongst both developers and tenants can lead to better land usage and more people friendly public spaces and streets?
- considerations on an integration of Mobility Management in general transport policy can be major steps leading to a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan?
Furthermore, the ECOMM 2014 will be the chance to discuss the challenges stemming from the revision of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans announced by the European Commission in its latest Communication . ECOMM 2014 also aims at stressing the role of the local authorities and the interaction between the different levels of governance, in light of this latest Communication.
Every year, the objective of ECOMM is to disseminate, increase and exchange the knowledge about mobility management in Europe and beyond and to enhance the networking within the mobility management community. The conference is a chance to get in touch with experts and policy makers, and the Transport Area of the Florence School of Regulation is happy to support members of the academic community who want to join us and engage in the discussion.
