Small and medium-sized cities webinar: Size doesn’t matter when it comes to innovation!

The webinar takes place on 17 March 10:00 – 12:00 CET. 

The Polis SMC (Small and medium-sized cities) platform gives a voice to SMCs and highlights their strong potential when it comes to implementing innovations in the field of mobility. In this platform, Polis members discuss urban mobility governance and policy tailored to SMCs.

Call for suggestions

Let us know if you would like to give a presentation during the webinar or if there are topics that you would like to see addressed.

Suggested topics

During the Polis Annual General Assembly (AGA), the following priority topics of interest were already identified:

  • Connecting rural and urban areas: which mobility solutions are available? To which extent can DRT (Demand Responsive Transport) help to meet the needs of underserved areas? Are there new use cases, business models, public-private partnerships that can inspire us or be replicated elsewhere?
  • Financing & subsidies: for SMCs budget is sometimes an issue while often the solution could be easy to find. How can we solve this puzzle?
  • New Mobility Services: which role can they play in SMCs? How to attract them?

Join the Small and Medium-sized Cities (SMCs) webinar and help us to define the goals for the year!

This webinar is complementary to the one face-to-face meeting scheduled for the autumn 2020.
