On 22-23 November 2017, UITP organised a high-level international seminar on Smart Mobility 2020: Innovative and sustainable urban transport in Europe. The event took place in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia which is currently at the helm of the Council of the European Union and the EU Presidency.

The event, with its main focus on Central Eastern European countries, was organised in partnership with Tallinn’s municipal public transport operator Tallinna Linnatranspordi AS and the Tartu Municipality. Moreover, the event was held under the patronage of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications and organised under the 2017 Estonian EU Presidency’s official programme and with the Presidency’s support.

The Seminar was an excellent opportunity to discuss the most current mobility trends and challenges for the CEE region in the race to digitalise and decarbonise public transport, as well as to meet with top mobility stakeholders from throughout Europe. The event hosted more than 120 people from 28 countries during two days.

Highlights included a strategic debate with high-level mobility and smart city stakeholders from the EU, particularly from CEE countries, including decision-makers from EU institutions and national and local governments on the first day, and an extensive technical tour to the new Viru bus terminal and control centre on the second day.

The goal of the event was to find and share innovative and sustainable solutions for public transport challenges in the CEE region. In the same light, UITP introduces the second volume of its Central and Eastern Europe Knowledge Series, which provides an overview of urban mobility developments in the region through the lens of three recurring themes: sustainability, innovation and strategy.

The report features the most compelling recently-completed or ongoing projects in the urban mobility sector in Alania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, FYR Macedonia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. A wide array of topics are covered, from the deployment of electric bus fleets to the use of blended finance and the implementation of ITS.
