MMOVE Final Event
The EU project MMOVE (Mobility Management Over Europe: changing mobility patterns) will present its main achievements at the Final Event, to be held in Reggio Emilia (IT) on 16th November 2011.
MMOVE involves 11 partners from 8 different Member States (Italy, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Romania) and aims at fostering the exchange of experiences on sustainable mobility policies in European small and medium sized cities.
During this 3 years project, MMOVE partners have identified and exchanged Best Practices on sustainable mobility in the field of communication and awareness raising, traffic management and control and public and collective transport, analyzing the potential transfer of a selection these practices in their own cities. This will represent the basis to negotiate at political level the development and future implementation of sustainable mobility strategies and policies.
MMOVE Final Event will be the occasion to present and share MMOVE experience and results, but also to stimulate a wide debate at political and technical level on the future of sustainability in Europe. Keywords of the event will be: mobility, sustainability, inter-regional cooperation, and smart cities.
Several are the keynote speakers of international importance invited to share their views on relevant topic as:
- the European Strategy on Sustainable Mobility - DG Move
- the future of EU Regional Policy - DG Regio
- the INTERREG ICV Programme - INTERREG IVC Joint Technical Secretariat
- Mobility Management in Europe - Mr. Karl-Heinz Posch, EPOMM Coordinator
- Future Sustainable Cities - Prof. Carlo Ratti, Founder and Director of SenseAble City Lab (MIT)
The event will be at the heart of a 3 days appointment dedicated to sustainable mobility involving the city of Reggio Emilia, featuring also a meeting of the Eurotowns network (www.eurotowns.org) Mobility Task Team on 15th November and a workshop on cycling in urban areas, organized by CIVINET Italy network (www.civitas-initiative.org), on 17th November 2011.
