Dear members,

We have the pleasure this week to welcome our new colleague Stephanie Leonard who has recently completed a graduate traineeship at the Clean Transport and Sustainable Urban Mobility unit of the European Commission. Stephanie will be involved in the FP7 projects CIVITAS Capital, Solutions and MyWay. She holds a Masters degree in Political Science from the University of Glasgow.

This Autumn kicks off with a number of excellent networking and learning possibilities for all of us: September sees even two Polis Working Group meetings on Parking and Transport&Health as well as the European Mobility Week, to name just a few. Register online and check all events on the Polis website, now in easier calendar format!
