Urban Transports Community: midterm conference to discuss the state of the art

Focus on mobility challenges in urban and metropolitan areas

Barcelona, 12-13 November 2018

 

Organised by GO SUMP Project (Interreg MED) and SMART MR Project (Interreg Europe), the conference will host the partners of the Interreg MED Modular Projects from the Urban Transports Thematic Community together with the participation of the Modular projects from the Efficient Buildings and Renewable Energy Communities.

The conference will take place in Barcelona (Spain) the 12th and 13th of November.

At this moment, most of the projects are in the mid-term of their overall performance and the conference will be occasion to present their on-going results to experts and strategic institutions with the objective to consolidate their technical approach and their contribution to regulatory framework.

MedCities and the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona with the support of the Barcelona Smart City Expo World Congress organize the international conference, meetings and technical visits.

The conference welcomes all who work on urban transports, sustainable mobility, energy efficiency in buildings and renewable energies, in local governments, in regional or national authorities, but also politics, universities, businesses, industry and NGOs.

The idea of bringing together different actors gives the opportunity to overview the trends on sustainable initiatives while introducing the most highlighted results with broader impact, which are backed on I+D+I projects, aiming at promoting Low-Carbon territories.

Ana Allué Poc from CIRCE - Research Centre for Energy Resources and Consumption and Fabio Tomasi from Area Science Park will represent LOCATIONS partners.
