Delegates at the European Conference on Mobility Management called for mobility management o be integrated into national and EU policies

Gathering in Florence on 7-9 May, delegates at the European Conference on Mobility Management (ECOMM) called upon the EU institutions for joint efforts to accelerate mobility management throughout Europe. The ECOMM is organised annually by the European Platform on Mobility Management (EPOMM). 

The delegates stressed that mobility management should be an integrated part of national and EU policies. This would mean creating and supporting mobility management networks at national level to facilitate this process and promote exchange of knowledge and good practice between policy makers, stakeholders, experts and practitioners.

Mobility experts are requesting a European ‘master plan’ for mobility management, which would create a strategic supportive framework to share good practices and experiences of mobility management. This plan would promote the integration of mobility management into European policies, and set out measures and actions to make it part of all relevant EU policies.

The EPOMM awards ceremony, acknowledging the successful exchange of best practice on sustainable mobility, took place during the ECOMM. This year’s prize recognised the successful policy transfer between Munich and Almada on the ‘New Resident Kit’. The kit, designed to provide new inhabitants with all relevant information to adopt more sustainable mobility, has been a large success in the Portuguese city.
