On 3 and 4 March 2015, K2 and X2AB – together with UITP – are organising a conference in Malmö on new ways of financing public transport.
The conference will provide background data on the need for an alternative and innovative financing of public transport, and above all concrete examples of alternative financing models with a broad focus on international experience and practical applications. The goal of the conference is to give a deeper insight into alternative financing models, their advantages and disadvantages, and the necessary preconditions for introducing them.
Interesting presentations of international examples
A number of qualified international speakers will take part in the conference, including Alain Flausch, Secretary General of the UITP, Giampaolo Codeluppi, Chairman of the UITP Transport Economic Commission, HG Wessberg, negotiator, Swedish Government, Mats Rönnbo, Nordic Development Director at Skanska, Professor Francesca Medda from University College London, Peter Viinapuu CEO, MTR Nordic and Ilmar Reepalu, second vice president of the SKL/SALAR board.
