UITP will organise a high-level international seminar taking place on 22-23 November 2017 in Tallinn (Estonia) entitled Smart Mobility 2020: Innovative and sustainable urban transport in Europe.

The event is being organised together with Tallinn’s operator Tallinna Linnatranspordi AS and the Tartu Municipality. Moreover, the event is held under the patronage of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications and organized under the 2017 Estonian EU Presidency official programme and with the Presidency’s support.

The Seminar will be the opportunity to discuss and meet with top mobility stakeholders from throughout Europe and the Baltic States. The second day will feature a technical visit in the morning. 


1. Be part of a strategic debate with high-level mobility and smart city stakeholders from the EU and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region, including representatives of EU institutions, municipalities, transport operators and key manufacturers.

2. Learn the latest policy and sectoral approaches towards urban mobility in CEE, including transport financing, modern ITS and data-driven technologies, greening the mobility and new mobility business models.

3. Joins us and take advantage of a unique opportunity to network and develop new partnerships, investments and innovative projects with your regional and European peers.

During this conference, we intend to hold a strategic debate with high-level mobility and smart city stakeholders from the EU, particularly the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region, including decision-makers from the EU institutions and national and local governments. We expect to welcome around 100 delegates to discuss the state of the art of the urban mobility in Europe, but also focus on key sectoral issues including infrastructure financing, new ITS and data-driven technologies, green mobility and urban services, new mobility business models and EU policies towards more mobility-centered urban initiatives. The event will also serve as a discussion and knowledge platform between transport, infrastructure and urban development stakeholders and policy-makers on how to support low-carbon and innovation-driven mobility and urban projects, policies and strategies in CEE Member States and further afield.
