Better streets for better cities: Register for the final event of the MORE project
The final event of the EU-funded MORE project, “Better streets for better cities”, will take place in Brussels on 17 February 2022.
As the MORE project draws to a close, the experts and practitioners who have contributed to shape innovative concepts and tools for the reallocation of road space will gather in Brussels to present their experience and findings.
Over the past three years, MORE has worked to identify existing and future pressures on busy roads connecting five European cities with the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). Such pressures include factors such as demographic change, technological advances, economic growth, and the evolution of lifestyles.
On 17 February, the event will address the concepts, context and challenges of street design, and will provide participants an opportunity to get acquainted with the street redesign process developed my MORE. Representatives from the cities of Budapest, Constanta, Lisbon, London and Malmö will share their experiences and tips for success.
New process and tools to design the city of places
Urban policy objectives are evolving. European cities are pursuing bold visions to transform from car-oriented cities to cities that promote sustainable urban mobility and better and more resilient urban environments, favouring street activities and social interactions. The tools and processes developed by MORE will guide transport and planning authorities in this process by engaging residents and stakeholders and considering the needs of all users.
The event will start at 11:00 and end at 17:00. The draft agenda for the event is available here.
Registration and practical information
The event will take place at the Renaissance Brussels Hotel (Rue du Parnasse 19, Brussels), following all the safety measures recommended by Belgian authorities. The event will also be livestreamed. Register for the event by filling the form on the event page.
About the EU-funded MORE project
The EU-funded MORE project developed and implemented innovations for the design of urban corridor roads. Today’s high levels of air and noise pollution, congestion, and accidents can reduce the economic efficiency and have a negative impact on the health and well-being of urban populations. Efficient design of road space favouring multimodality and sustainable transport modes is essential. Against this backdrop, MORE developed design tools for multimodal street design in five nodes of the Trans-European Transport Network, namely Budapest, Constanta, Lisbon, London and Malmö.
