The demands on Europe's transport systems continue to both increase and change as a result of a number of factors - economic decline and growth, social change, demographics and the need to become less unsustainable. Such change demands innovative, robust and affordable responses and the European Transport Conference aims to be the key annual event for sharing innovation, best practice and networking with colleagues from more than 30 countries. The Conference attracts around 500 transport practitioners and researchers to find in-depth presentations on policy issues, best practice and research findings across a broad spectrum of transport modes.
The Conference programme covers supra-national issues, national and local policy, and the implementation of projects at a local level. Issues of key importance will be introduced in daily plenary sessions. The Conference positions itself at the interface between research and practice, and speakers are asked to draw out the policy implications of research.
