European Transport Conference 2023

ETC 2023 a live event

During the Covid pandemic, AET organised two successful multi-stream online ETC conferences that were positively evaluated by the attendees. Each event was attended by more than 500 people and delivered a full three day programme with over 150 sessions across the two years. However, it is acknowledged that the real value of ETC is in the networking opportunities and the ability to make new connections and reaffirm old professional friendships. There is no substitute for those impromptu encounters during coffee breaks when discussion among delegates generates new ideas and contacts.

Therefore in 2023, the European Transport Conference returns once again to a full three-day conference at the Bovisa Campus of Politecnico di Milano. This follows the 2022 conference that celebrated our 50th anniversary. AET was delighted that the 2022 conference was so successful, with excellent attendance, thought-provoking plenaries and topical sessions.

AET has the ambition to make the 2023 conference as, if not more, successful than last year’s conference. This year, delegates can expect presentations focusing on:

  • Human wellbeing – delivering transport schemes for the health of future generations
  • Transport equity – enabling inclusiveness in travel in diverse societies
  • Sustainable travel – shaping tourism and daily travel in the face of climate change and energy transition
  • Supply chain challenges – impacts of labour and resource constraints in freight and passenger transport
  • Regulatory issues – impacts of national and international legislation on infrastructure and services
  • Funding and financial sustainability – challenges from Covid recovery and energy prices
  • Cities and transport – integrated planning, liveable cities and active transport 

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.

The video gives a short compilation of the successful 2022 conference.
