Rural mobility conference coming up


Registration is now open for the SMARTA final conference which will be organised on 10th and 11th of December!

SMARTA is an EU-funded project related to the implementation of shared mobility services interconnected with public transport in four rural areas in the European Union: East Tyrol (Austria), Trikala (Greece), Águeda (Portugal) and Brasov (Romania). It aims at improving the mobility landscape in the abovementioned rural areas, test how local citizens’ behavioural aspects can influence mobility-related attitudes and generate a toolkit of good practices that practitioners can use to implement shared mobility schemes in other rural areas in Europe. More information about the project can be found here

The conference is composed of a set of virtual sessions, spread over two days. Key outcomes from project activities will be presented through dedicated sessions specifically targeted to address key stakeholders active in the field of rural mobility.

On Thursday, 10th December, two sessions will be organised. The morning session will focus on SMARTA policy recommendations. The afternoon session will highlight possible solutions as demonstrated by the SMARTA network of sites.
On Friday, 11th December, two specific sessions will be organised in the morning, both dealing with impacts, evaluation and ways forward. The 3rd session will present and discuss the findings from the evaluation activities carried out with the SMARTA sites, SMARTA2 sites and the SMARTA in-depth Good Practices. The 4th session will introduce the broader perspective of rural mobility, including future opportunities, on other issues, such as community building, environment and traffic, including a session on COVID-19 outbreak and its implications on rural mobility.
