Session moderator: Barry Sheerman, MP, UKChairman of the Parliamentary Advisory Council on Transport Safety
Transport and traffic systems which are environmentally sustainable and give individuals the freedom to move affordably and safely are essential. Combinations of planning measures, restrictions, benefits, technological development, information and education are means of influencing transport and traffic systems. Fresh opportunities arise and new knowledge will help to make innovative solutions possible. Robust strategies and action plans are needed.
This session will focus on the definition of problems and the identification of knowledge essential to successful cross-border collaboration for the development of new transport systems.
