Submit your abstract for the 6th European Mobility Days in Strasbourg!

Did you hear that? We are only months away from the 6th European Mobility Days in Strasbourg! In anticipation of this one-of-a-kind mobility event, the partners have opened a Call for Abstracts. So, what are you waiting for? Submit your abstract before 15 January 2024 in time to join us for two days of enlightening urban mobility discussions!

Whether you are a newcomer to the European Mobility Days or a five-time participant, you will not want to miss out on the 6th edition of this leading European mobility event, which will take place from 16-17 May 2024. This time around, the European Mobility Days will be hosted by Cerema and CNFPT, in partnership with the Eurometropole of Strasbourg, GART, UTP, MOT, University of Gustave Eiffel, the Strasbourg Urban Planning Agency, and POLIS network. Together, the partners are excited to offer two exciting days of mobility discussions that will focus one major dilemma: bringing together supply and demand for mobility.


What will be covered

The need for decarbonised (public) transport is only growing, and while Europe's regions are mobilising and developing ambitious public policies to develop active modes of transport (walking, cycling) and the use of public transport as well as reduce the use of private cars, these initiative often take the form of supply-side policies and increased regulation on car use. In this context, the introduction of more and better mobility services as an alternative to the private car runs the risk of generating demand that will be increasingly difficult and costly to satisfy, or of coming up against unsustainable mobility desires.

To foster the growth of comprehensive sustainable mobility alternatives across Europe's cities and regions, the 6th edition of the European Mobility Days will delve into both the supply and the demand sides of the equation. A truly European perspective on this issue will be achieved by comparing different visions, practices, and experiences. Accordingly, the two event days will be divided into three main sessions, addressing three separate, but equally important topics:

  1. How can we support local residents in the necessary changes and help them to adopt new practices?
  2. How can public spaces be better shared and managed in the face of a proliferation of desired uses?
  3. How can we develop public transport and complementarity between modes of transport in a difficult economic climate?

The agenda has been set. The only thing missing? Your participation!


How you can get involved

To make this event one for the books, we need your fresh ideas and innovative plans. Are you eager to drive forward a sustainable mobility transition that is both ambitious and realistic? Then consider submitting your abstract before 15 January 2024! Your paper proposal can be uploaded here.

Further information regarding abstracts will be available soon. 


In the meantime, feel free to address your questions to POLIS' Director of Policy & Projects, Ivo Cré, at icre@polisnetwork.eu
