The topic of the Dialogue will be Innovation in Urban Mobility focusing on the new models of provision of transport services in urban areas called in different contexts as shared mobility, mobility on-demand or mobility as a service. In particular, the meeting will address the legal and regulatory framework of sharing mobility platforms, innovative technology solutions for urban transport and planning management as well as the impacts, main challenges and opportunities generated to public and private actors and the users. Academics and practitioners will bring their experience of managing development, design and implementation of urban mobility policies, and they will tackle issues such as regulation, technology and new sustainability models in smart cities.
