A focus on finance for mobility measures
How should mobility planners ensure their plans are ambitious, yet realistic? And what financial resources and mechanisms are available to help ensure ideas turn into reality?
These are questions to be addressed during the conference session on financing for Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, which will feature presentations by:
Marcel Rommerts, Head of Unit of Transport Research in the Innovation and Networks Agency (INEA). Marcel Rommerts is responsible for the Horizon 2020 projects in the field of transport and will be presenting on the decentralized implementation of transport (and energy) budgets.
Isabelle Maes, Policy Officer at the European Commission DG Mobility & Transport (MOVE).Isabelle Maes will provide an overview of further European financial instruments available to cities.
This session will be moderated by Associate Professor Marcin Wolek, from the University of Gdansk and the presentations will be complemented by a practical example of how a city has drawn on a range of funding sources to move from planning to implementation.
Further updates on speakers, conference activities and practical information will be provided on the Eltis website.
The European Conferences on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans are organised by the ENDURANCE project.
