European Transport Conference 2022: Transport & Mobility Forum

transport mobility 1 sep

ETC 2022: 7-9 September

AET's Transport and Mobility Forum welcomes you to join our events at ETC2022

 

'Perspectives on the Changing Transport Sector'

A debate chaired by Derek Halden, Wednesday 7th September 1815 – 1900 hours, La Collina, Bovisa Campus, Politecnico di Milano.

Since the spring of 2020, online conversations have allowed AET members to share their experiences and research on a changing world. At ETC 2022, this live session will help to develop these conversations in more depth and detail through face-to-face debate. The session will start with an introduction to some of the key topics discussed online:

  • Who should pay for personal rights to mobility?
  • How can transport and land use be better managed as a system?
  • What are the true costs of greenwashing?
  • How to build trust in net-zero freight and logistics supply chains?
  • How can government’s role in future transport technology be better defined?
  • How can we allocate space and share transport resources better?
  • When will people feel safe using autonomous vehicles?

To set the scene, a short video of some highlights from the webinar series will feature contributions from Matteo Antoniala, Carey Curtis, Maria Chiara Leva, Gerard de Jong, Cecilia Silva, and Mateu Turro. The session will be Introduced by Herman Maier Chair of the AET Board, and Conall Mac Aongusa Chair of AET’s TMF, and Professor Ennio Cascetta will make the first expert response to set the scene for the debate. The Chair of the debate, Derek Halden, will then invite expert comment from ETC conference speakers and facilitate an open forum delegate discussion. Attendees can expect to leave the session with a better understanding of how to tackle some of transport’s thorniest problems.

The AET Drinks Reception will follow immediately afterwards in the same venue.

 

'AET Transport and Mobility Forum
– A Retrospective and Look Forward.'

Your opportunity to input to the Forum's future activities, with TMF Chair Conall Mac Aongusa. Thursday 8th September 1130-1200, Room BL27.0.5 next to the coffee and exhibition area. 

The AET Transport and Mobility Forum (TMF), originally established as the AET COVID-19 Conversations Group, has a strong record of organising online webinars during and after the pandemic on key trends, challenges and debating points shaping the European and global transport sector. This face-to-face session will present what the Forum has achieved since its creation in April 2020 and seek feedback from ETC participants on what has worked well, what could be improved and how activities should be organised, and on what topics, moving forward.

The session will be introduced by TMF Chair Conall Mac Aongusa and moderated by TMF Member Jonathan Spear and Andras Munkacsy. Attendance and active contribution of viewpoints and ideas for future TMF directions is strongly encouraged by the AET Board and Council so please join us during the first coffee break and have your say.

These events are open to all ETC 2022 delegates, with no booking necessary. We look forward to seeing you in Milan at the European Transport Conference

EIT Urban Mobility

ETC 2022: 7-9 September

EIT Urban Mobility: European opportunities for the future of our cities

EIT Urban Mobility is an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union. Since January 2019, EIT has been working to encourage positive changes in the way people move around cities in order to make them more livable places. EIT aims to become the largest European initiative transforming urban mobility. Join EIT at this year’s ETC to learn more about their mission, activities, and the opportunities offered:

  • Overview about EIT Urban Mobility – Judith O’Meara, Managing Director of Innovation Hub Central - EIT Urban Mobility
  • Complementarities between EIT Urban Mobility and other Italian funds – Laura Mazzola, Regional Dissemination Hub Italy - EIT Urban Mobility
  • Panel with representatives from the City of Milan and partners participating in EIT Urban Mobility projects

Over 250+ urban mobility challenges have been identified by cities across Europe. Each year a work programme is developed with a focus on several innovation challenge areas to be addressed by EIT Urban Mobility activities. Among the topics covered, urban air mobility has attracted the interest of different society sectors, as it is expected to become a reality in Europe in the coming years with the delivery of goods by drones and the transport of passengers. 

The research and studies on urban air mobility help to increase the knowledge about the topic and confront the pros and cons of this upcoming reality. 

This year at ETC, EIT Urban Mobility would like to acknowledge the research efforts by awarding a prize to one of the papers on urban air mobility to be presented during the conference. The winning research paper will be given the opportunity to publish an article in the EIT Urban Mobility Journal.

European Transport Conference 2022: Data and Digital use of Data

data

ETC 2022: 7-9 September

Data

Data and Digital use of data, and a combination of various data streams, has become a focal point of managing transportation assets. Transport data as a source of input plays a large part in our Digital revolution. In addition, the recent worldwide pandemic reiterated the importance of data, including its processing in a flexible manner, and how transport can react positively and possibly help to predict various strategies, scenarios and outcomes.

This year, we are delighted to have a wide spectrum of papers covering topics such as data-driven toolkits, travel patterns, freight, electric mobility and open data.
 
Managing large datasets, processing them and trying to understand how and when to use and apply them is a challenge, and our speakers will provide valuable insights for industry and academic practitioners into methods applied, and difficulties envisaged, setting out lessons learned and challenges that certainly lie ahead for us all to consider.

European Transport Conference 2022: Rail Policy and Planning Programme announced

Rail policy and planning

ETC 2022: 7-9 September

Rail Policy and Planning Programme Committee

The Rail Policy and Planning Programme Committee seeks to encourage debate on the planning, operation and economics of heavy rail passenger transport overall but also with respect to emerging challenges such as COVID 19, climate change or incidents affecting security and safety.
 
Some people attending the 2022 conference in Milan may experience rail to get there. Many more travellers rely on rail (once again) as an indispensable means of transport for many purposes, despite Covid and other challenges. At ETC 2022, the Rail Planning and Policy sessions include:

  • Looking ahead at strategies for all stakeholders in the rail market taking into account the demand side, the financial situation and the political framework.
  • Rail demand will be considered viewed from both from an international and a behavioural perspective. Wellbeing and safety are keywords as well as changes in the composition and profile of passenger demand.
  • Rail infrastructure and its cross-regional connectivity is another issue as we look at the recent plans for intra-UK connectivity, including between the mainland of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
  • Competitiveness within the rail system, but also with other modes such as air, will also be addressed at this year’s ETC in Milan…a key rail node in Italy, not only with important regional and freight networks but also the starting point for different long-distance trains operating in direct competition.

European Transport Conference 2022: System Dynamics Stream

 

System Dynamics

ETC 2022: 7-9 September

System Dynamics programme

Transport systems, whether they be infrastructural, economic, technical, political, or sociological, are complex and constantly changing. As such, System Dynamics (SD) modelling, as a method for capturing behaviours and understanding of changes in complex systems over time, including feedbacks and lagged response, is being increasingly adopted in transport research and planning. SD combines both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, offering many advantages compared to traditional transport modelling.
 
Grounded in systems theory, Causal Loop Diagrams are mental models that demonstrate links and logical behaviours between variables within a system, that can be self-reinforcing or balancing. Stock Flow Models are the quantitative dynamic simulation tools, allowing many scenarios to be easily and quickly compared. SD is particularly well suited to policy analysis, and as a support tool for decision making, as models can be co-created with stakeholders.
 
Join us at #etc2022 for special sessions where this type of modelling has been applied within transport, to provide insight on the opportunities it may offer to all types of transport projects and research - whether you have experience in SD or require an introduction to it. Supported by the System Dynamics Society Special Interest Group in Transportation.

AET Transport and Mobility Forum: FREE Webinar 23 June 2022

Transport Mobility

AET Transport and Mobility Forum and Journal of Urban Mobility (JUM) present a joint webinar:

The 15 Minute City – Putting Accessibility by Proximity into Practice

FREE Webinar: Thursday 23rd June 2022

11.00 – 12.30 CEST (10.00 – 11.30 BST)

We invite you to a webinar on 23rd June hosted by AET Transport and Mobility Forum and the Journal of Urban Mobility. In this webinar, the Journal’s Co-Editor-in-Chief, Dr Benjamin Büttner will moderate a discussion about concept of the 15 Minute City with Cecilia Silva, Chris Kwantes and Margherita Villani.

The ongoing COVID pandemic, the negative effects of private motorized transport, and the advancing climate crisis have led to a steady increase in interest in active mobility and accessibility through spatial proximity in recent years. Especially, the concepts of the “15-Minute City” and the “20-Minute Neighbourhoods” have been promoted as blueprints for future urban planning. They promise to deliver more sustainable, liveable, resilient, and equitable cities by creating dense and diverse neighbourhoods with destinations in proximity to peoples’ homes. These concepts thus tie in with themes that have long been discussed in the literature on accessibility and urban planning. However, questions remain on how the X-Minute City concept can be operationalised and assessed, how the concept relates to physical, perceived and virtual accessibilities, how the concept affects different groups of residents, including vulnerable population groups, how the concept translates to different types of areas, and how the concept articulates with urban agglomeration scale policies. Furthermore, there are questions on how X-Minute City planning goals can be achieved in practice, and the inclusion of virtual accessibility to jobs and services (teleworking, online shopping etc.). The webinar will try to find answers to these questions and seeks to bridge the gap between planning practice and the accessibility literature.

One of the most prominent ideas that rose to prominence during the pandemic is the 15-Minute City. The 15-Minute City has been famously championed by the City of Paris and the Parisian mayor Anne Hidalgo, who made it the foundation of her transport- and land-use planning policies. For example, Hidalgo plans to get rid of half of Paris’ surface parking spaces to make space for active transport modes and public space (Marchant, 2020). The main idea behind the 15-Minute City is the reduction of car traffic by simply eliminating the need for it. If people can reach the most important everyday destinations in a short time on foot or by bicycle, the logic goes, they will ditch the car of their own accord. This shall lead to more sustainable, resilient, and livable cities.

This webinar from the AET Transport and Mobility Forum and the Journal of Urban Mobility will explore the practical challenges of implementing these ideas by bringing together perspectives from experienced practitioners in Italy and the Netherlands and from the latest academic research in Europe. It will consider the opportunities and challenges posed and investigate the choices which need to be made in balancing technological progress with broader public value and social equity.

The webinar will be introduced by Dr Benjamin Büttner of Technische Universität München who will set the scene for how the debate on urban planning has been evolving in recent years. This will be followed by three speakers and presentations as follows:

  • Dr Cecilia Silva - University of Porto (PT)
  • Chris Kwantes - Mobility Planner, Goudappel Coffeng Consultants (NL)
  • Margherita Villani - Transport and Mobility Engineer, NET Engineering SpA (IT)

The webinar will be hosted on the WebEx platform. Please click on the button below and follow the link to register for the webinar.

Pre-registered participants will receive additional information the day before the webinar containing instructions on how to use WebEx and a calendar item with the link. Please note that there is no deadline for signing up. Last minute registrants can access the webinar via the registration link.

The topic will also be the subject of a forthcoming special issue of the Journal and will be an important theme at the European Transport Conference (ETC) being held in Milan in September this year.

Webinar: Thursday 3 February 2022

11.00 - 12.00 CET (10.00 - 11.00 GMT/WET)

Increasing the sustainability of freight transport

This FREE webinar is organised as the fourth event of the AET Transport and Mobility Forum (previously AET Covid-19 Conversations) and will be chaired by Thierry Vanelslander, Professor in the Department of Transport and Regional Economics at the University of Antwerp and Chair of the European Transport Conference Freight and Logistics Programme Committee. It will focus on two aspects of increasing the sustainability of freight transport:

Shared e-fleets for communal services - a way to reducing urban transport emissions. Dr. Verena Ehrler - researcher at the University Gustave Eiffel, FR and a lecturer at the Wildau Institute of Technology, DE:

  • Cities are under growing pressure to reduce transport related emissions, in order to reach air pollution as well as climate targets. Shifting municipal fleets to electric vehicles is one approach that can contribute to such an emission reduction. In a project carried out in Berlin, municipal services - water supply management, waste management and public transport services - pilot shared electric vehicles for their service units. The presentation maps out how such shared fleets can contribute to greening urban transport.

Freight modal shift: economically feasible and environmentally beneficial?

Axel Merkel and Inge Vierth - Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI), SE:

  • Modal shift of freight from road to more energy-efficient modes of transport is seen as a tool to help reduce emissions from the freight transport sector. Despite high ambitions, policies for a modal shift in Europe have largely been unsuccessful. This presentation offers a comparison of mode choice elasticities examined in the context of Swedish maritime freight flows, demonstrating the inelasticity of Swedish maritime freight flows.

AET Transport and Mobility Forum: Webinar 06 January 2022

transport and mobility Dec 18

Webinar: Thursday 6 January 2022

11.00 - 12.00 CET (10.00 - 11.00 GMT/WET)

Did COP26 Mainstream the Implementation of Sustainable Transport?

The 26th United Nations Conference of Parties for Sustainable development was held in Glasgow in November 2021. It was hailed as a last chance summit for progress on sustainability. Emissions associated with transport continue to be one of the greatest areas of concern so what can we now expect as a result of COP26?

The headline agreements from COP26 talk about collaboration and cooperation agreements, enhanced transparency on reporting, and making zero-emission vehicles the new normal. What will these mean in practice?

To start the AET webinar series in 2022, we will be considering this topic broadly by looking at what is technically achievable, politically achievable and likely to be achieved. To offer this range of perspectives, we have arranged for experts to talk informally about their hopes and expectations for 2022. We have a professional at the front line of managing the changes in a large city authority, an academic setting out options and possibilities, and a politician seeking to optimise the art of the achievable (invited, name to be confirmed).

  • Deborah Paton – Glasgow City Council – Deborah is Group Manager for Connectivity at the Council developing the sustainable approaches for the city in which COP26 was held.
  • Carey Curtis – Professor of Sustainable Transport Melbourne and Curtin Universities Australia – In 2020 Carey Curtis edited the International Handbook of Sustainable Transport.

The webinar is organised as the third event of the AET Transport and Mobility Forum (previously the AET Covid-19 conversations) and will be chaired by Derek Halden, from the AET Transport and Mobility Forum.
