European Transport Conference 2024

ETC 2024 - Providing mobility and access for current and future generations

The climate emergency, increasing attention for equity issues and a changing economic reality continue to present challenges for transport planners. The increasingly intense debate among the public and within governments calls for a need for a reliable evidence base and to keep the focus on the solutions for current and future generations.

It is the transport planner’s task to provide movement and access solutions for people and goods to get to where they need to be, in a sustainable, inclusive, efficient and affordable manner. Achieving and maintaining stakeholder support is essential for this.

The transportation profession benefits from a diverse array of expertise from research, policy and practice to achieve our mission. Let’s come together at the 52nd European Transport Conference in 2024; together we explore new developments, understand the challenges they pose, engage in new discussions, and formulate policy, service and infrastructure interventions.

 This year, delegates can expect presentations focusing on:

  • Human wellbeing – healthy, efficient, safe, and inclusive transport schemes for current and future generations
  • Sustainable travel –  shaping daily travel and long-distance trips in the face of climate change and energy transition
  • Mode-specific and inter-modal developments –  local bus, tram and train, taxis, micro-mobility and active travel, private car with long-distance rail and bus, Mobility as a Service, integrated logistics, last-mile delivery and Enterprise Resource Planning
  • Labour, resource and energy challenges – supply constraints in freight and passenger transport
  • Regulatory issues – impacts of international, national and local legislation and regulations on infrastructure and services
  • Funding and financial sustainability – private finance alongside public funding in collaborative delivery
  • Cities and transport –  integrated planning, active travel, liveable cities
  • Transport planning analysis and models – the methods and tools for this century
  • Air travel and airports –  moving towards a more environmentally sustainable and commercially viable future
  • Technology and Artificial Intelligence – how can and will these shape transport in the future?

The annual European Transport Conference brings together researchers, policy makers and practitioners around ideas and visions of transport at European, national, regional and local level.
