The intermodality of transport, which enables national transport networks as well as different modes of transport to be integrated, is promoted and implemented at the European regulatory level. Several examples of daily life show that both passengers and freights go through their journeys with the interaction of different means of transport. Trans-European networks also aim to improve the intermodality of transport, stimulating investment in order to foster the emergence of an integrated network. FSR Transport aims to contribute to the on-going analysis of the challenges faced by the integrated transport to be competitive, effective and sustainable.
Florence Intermodal Forums
The Florence Intermodal Forums are directed at discussing various aspects of integrated transport, each time underlying the interaction between different modes of transport. The 1st Forum (December 2012) was dedicated to cross modal regulation in urban mobility systems. The 2nd Forum (March 2014) focused on the competition vs. complementarity between high-speed rail and low-cost air. At the 3rd Florence Intermodal Forum, which took place on March 9th 2015, we discussed the case of Mobility-as-a-Service.
Read more about the 4th Florence Intermodal Forum, which took place on February 29th 2016 and discussed how to achieve an intermodal level playing field in the context of digitalization.
Papers from the FSR Transport workshops and all presentations from the events are available online.
Over the years, stakeholders and administrators as well as knowledgeable academics have attended Florence Intermodal Forums to share their experiences. The different focuses of the Intermodal events brought to Florence prominent experts in different fields ( click here to download the full list of speakers ).
