5th European Conference on SUMPs to encourage debate on future of sustainable urban mobility

5 February 2018

Registration for the European Commission’s fifth conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), taking place in Nicosia (Cyprus) from 14-15 May, is now open.

The conference is Europe's leading annual event for all those involved in putting the SUMP concept into practice. It serves as a forum for policy makers and academics across Europe to network, debate key issues, and exchange ideas on sustainable urban mobility planning.

In light of the European Commission dedicating this year to the promotion of multimodality, the theme of this year's conference is multimodality, with a focus on the integration of transport modes and combined mobility solutions for passengers and freight in cities and regions.

The opening plenary session will be delivered by European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc. Attendance is free of charge, with representatives of local and regional authorities, policy makers, urban mobility planners, academics and other urban mobility professionals especially welcome.
