Priorities of the 2011 conference

Innovation is at the heart of Polis’ mission. Special emphasis will be placed on innovation at this year’s conference through the showcasing of innovative transport solutions and niche applications across a wide variety of areas. These will also be discussed in the context of European transport policy and their ability to contribute to the improvement of economic and social conditions.

Partnership with the European Economic and Social Committee

This year’s conference is being organised in partnership with the European Economic and Social Committee, a consultative body of the European Union representing civil society across the EU. Polis is cooperating with the Section for Transport, Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN), which covers the full range of issues relating to the various transport modes, the different forms of energy production, major infrastructure networks, the information society and services of general interest. The conference will therefore provide further opportunities to dialogue on innovation with employers and employees representatives from the transport sector.
