Polis joined forces in April 2016 with many associations in the transport sector calling on more investment on CEF Transport grants.
This paper calls for the necessary means to make the TEN-T network, a smart and well thought transport infrastructure plan for Europe, a reality. On its own it will create 10 million additional jobs by 2030.
We want to be able to exploit at the fullest the synergies between transport, energy and digitalisation to keep our continent at the forefront of the 21th century. For this reason, the transport sector urges the EU institutions to increase the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) budget in the upcoming review of the Multi-Annual Financial Framework.
Polis is organising a series of events in May in Brussels addressing respectively the topical themes of C-ITS, automation and MaaS: the CIMEC final conference on C-ITS will be held on 18 May and the Polis TE&M WG meeting on automation and MaaS will take place the day after.
The EU project on C-ITS and cities, CIMEC, has now published a draft of the C-ITS Roadmap for European Cities. The Roadmap draws on an extensive consultation process with both city stakeholders and the ITS industry, and presents a practical and realistic view of how the urban C-ITS environment is likely to develop over the next 5-10 years.
The General Assembly is jointly organised by the European Commission Directorates-General for Mobility and Transport, Energy and Communications Networks, Content & Technology. It is an official associated event of the current Dutch Presidency. In its third edition, this event is the place to be for learning about key policy and market trends for smart cities and communities and creating new contacts and networks.
