Call for extended abstract – ITF Pre-Summit Research Day

On 26 May 2020 the International Transport Forum (ITF) together with the ECTRI, the US Transportation Research Board (TRB) and the World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS), is co-organising the ITF 2020 Pre-Summit Research Day which will take place in Leipzig, Germany. The event will take place in conjunction with the International Transport Forum’s 2020 Annual Summit on 27- 29 May 2020 on the topic of “Transport Innovation for Sustainable Development”.

The objective of the Pre-Summit Research Day is to bring together top academics, researchers, and practitioners to present and discuss topics relevant to the Summit’s theme. It is critically important that research results are brought into practice. Therefore, the Research Day offers a great opportunity to exchange ideas with researchers, as well as, with representatives from governments, cities, and other decision makers.

A call for abstracts is now open. While the 2020 ITF Summit on Transport Innovation for Sustainable Development will discuss linkages between innovation in transport sector in all of its dimensions, i.e., regulation, infrastructure design, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), drones, air connectivity, internet of things (IOT), algorithms, etc., and will cut across individual/passenger travel and freight logistics and supply chains, the Research Day will limit its scope to three specific topics. In particular, in order to plan their actions and investments for the coming years, policy makers need input from researchers to provide knowledge and solutions on how to:

  • Seize the opportunities offered by micromobility and active transport;
  • Connect remote and rural areas with innovative sustainable transport solutions; and
  • Stimulate the adoption of low-carbon vehicle technologies.

Submissions of extended abstracts of up to 1000 words that address Transport Innovation for Sustainable Development on one of the above three topics are therefore welcomed.

Abstracts shall be submitted before Friday 6 March 2020.

Join the 2020 European Urbanism Next Conference

On 25 and 26 June 2020, the 2020 European Urbanism Next Conference will be held at Maassilo in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Pre-conference workshops will take place on June 24.

The conference is inspired by the annual Urbanism Next Conference in Portland, Oregon, USA. It will be an interdisciplinary convening of private, public and academic stakeholders such as political decision makers, planning and design professionals, real estate developers, urban logistics experts, researchers, entrepreneurs, mobility service providers and corporate mobility planners who play critical roles in shaping the future of cities. The conference will explore how technological, societal and economic trends will change- among others- the environment, the economy, transport and urban planning.

Each session will aim for a mix of formats, from traditional ones (presentations with Q/As and panel discussions) to more unconventional ones (Pecha Kucha and ‘Brain-squeezing’ sessions).

The call for sessions and speakers for Urbanism Next Europe 2020 is now open, the deadline is set on 28 February 2020.

Submit a session proposal to shape the European conversation on the present and future trends of urban mobility and development.

Further step towards green mobility: ELVITEN Go Live event in Genoa

On 23 January 2020, the Municipality of Genoa and Duferco Energia invited users, local authorities, the project’s partners and other project stakeholders to celebrate the ELVITEN Project Go Live in Genoa and to demonstrate the functionalities of the charging areas.

The event took place in one of the 4 ELVITEN areas close to the Piazza Principe train station in Genoa. Participants in the event could try electric vehicles and ELVITEN services to charge their electric bikes, motorbikes and quadricycles. All charging points can be reached free of charge until the end of the projected (October 2020) by simply registering with DEN ELVITEN services with the Duferco Energia mobile D-Mobility app.

A new equipment of 60 charging points for light electric vehicles, added to the 80 positions which were already present, places Genoa at the forefront in trialing light electric mobility. The equipment includes:

  • 12 type 3A wall-boxes and 5 “Bipàro” bike-boxes for parking and recharging electric bicycles between Via Fanti d’Italia and Via Bersaglieri
  • 12 wall-boxes and 4 bike-boxes at Via De Amicis
  • 24 wall boxes and 10 bikes- box at Via Pinelli
  • And further 12 wall boxes and 4 bike-boxes will be installed soon at Corso Andrea Podesta

A video of the event can be found here. A press release of the event can be found on the Municipality of Genoa website (Italian version). You can also check the Duferco Energia LinkedIn page.
