European Transport and Mobility Forum

Launch of the "ETM Forum" Online Collaboration Platform


(Beate MĂĽller) #1

Venue: Blue Point, Brussels

In 2017, within the activities of the project Mobility4EU (H2020 CSA), the initiative for building the European Transport and Mobility Forum has been launched. The ETMForum intends to connect stakeholders to discuss and advocate for user-centric approaches and cross-modal cooperation in transport of passenger and freight. The goal is no less than work together towards the Vision for transport in Europe in 2030 and the implementation of the Action Plan developed within Mobility4EU.

The work of the three initial Working Groups on “Co-creation for mobility planning”, “Involving users in R&D&I” and “Viable business for seamless transport” have been kicking-off their work in last year TUCTE18. The last milestone, the opening of the ETMForum for external partners, will be reached in the next days and announced via the project website at
