Governance Working Group

The Governance Working Group was recently created to address a gap in the network, looking at how to remap the urban mobility policy landscape. Disruption and change have been defined almost exclusively in terms of the development of new technologies. However, resources at the national level are still allocated to preserving industrial and obsolete investments. Frictions arise therefore concerning alternative energy, transport, and urban sustainability. Change and stability are not irreconcilable forces and the relationship between innovation and stability can be negotiated through a decisive & informed political governance.

Join us in this new group to discuss on topics such as Smart Cities, SUMPs, financing and policy making for cutting-edge innovation. The group will also bring into focus horizontal issues such as communication with the public, co-creation and how to implement politically sensitive measures such as Low Emission Zones. The objectives of the working group are mainly to:

  • Exchange on strategies, good practice, needs and challenges in policy making & local innovation
  • Discuss latest developments in EU budget and financing means for cities
  • Integrated thinking for Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans
  • Advocacy towards the EU institutions through exchanges with DG MOVE, RTD or REGIO
  • Discuss ways to engage with the industry partners
