Transport Forums

The FSR Transport Area’s core activity is the organisation of policy events, called Florence Transport Forums, where representatives of the European Commission, regulatory authorities, operators, academics and other relevant stakeholders meet to discuss and shape trans­port-relevant regulatory policies for Europe. The Transport Forums’ topics are selected by the Area Director in cooperation with members of the Advisory Council, the Scientific Advisors and the European Commission.

More than 45 such events have taken place to date.
