Editorial

Dear members,

On the 23rd of February, Polis is organising a breakfast meeting at our premises to discuss our recently released paper “ROAD VEHICLE AUTOMATION AND CITIES AND REGIONS” with Brussels stakeholders, while having a warm drink and a croissant. Polis members Gothenburg, Île de France and Madrid will share their views. Please, register here by 19th February if you wish to join us.

In this newsletter, you can read more about Polis key meetings lined up for you in the next few months. We provide you with an overview of all Working Groups (WG) meetings coming up, whereas this page will show you which project events and key conferences are in the pipeline.

Polis is also preparing for the 2021-2027 multi-annual financial framework. Decisions about how transport innovation and investment will be catered for at EU level are taken in the course of 2018. We hope you can get involved in making sure our voice is heard and members’ priorities and concerns are raised!

Please login to the Polis website as a member to access all information addressed to Polis members only (green headlines). If you do not remember your login details, don’t hesitate to contact us.


For now, I wish you a pleasant read.

Kind regards,

Karen Vancluysen
