The European Transport Conference (ETC) is the annual conference of the Association for European Transport, attracting transport policy makers, practitioners and researchers from all over Europe and beyond. ETC offers in-depth presentations on policy issues, best practice and research findings across the broad spectrum of transport. ETC also provides an opportunity where delegates can enjoy networking opportunities, participate in virtual technical visits, and explore an online exhibition. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ETC 2021 will be held as a virtual event. The 2021 conference maintains its unique identity of a multidisciplinary, multi-seminar format but in an online environment. This year’s ETC will offer eight simultaneous seminars per day plus plenary sessions. Key conference themes to be explored this year include:

  • COVID-19 and the consequences
  • The Climate Emergency
  • Inclusion and Diversity

Delegates will also have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the conference platform the preceding Sunday, 12 September.
