Starting with this issue, we are happy to inform you that we are increasing the periodicity of InfoPolis which now becomes bi-weekly. This is part of our efforts to provide you better information and services in a more convenient way. This will allow to make this newsletter more attractive to our members and to reduce the need to send you additional emails, though those will not of course disappear.
The increase of periodicity reinforces InfoPolis as our main communication tool towards our membership. We encourage you to consult it by accessing the members area of the website where you will also find many more useful information. Progressively, with the development of the website and our use of social networks, we are implementing a full range of complementary tools to inform and support you.
Back from holidays, the European institutions are at work again. Polis welcomes MEP Grosch draft report on the European transport White paper “Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area” which includes several points in line with Polis position which was presented to him during the summer. We will tell you more about this in the next days.
Finally, I strongly encourage you to attend our working groups scheduled this autumn, on site or on line. The working group on transport and health in Dresden on the 29th of September brings an original but fundamental perspective to the work we are doing on mobility by looking at its health dimension. There is no doubt that this will be a more prominent topic in the years to come.
Our working group on mobility and traffic efficiency in Brussels will include on the 10th of October an important session on the ITS directive with representatives of the EC and Member States. The goal of the session will be to explain further the directive to our members and to identify its potential impact for them.
