Conference themes

Main theme

“New Mobility… New reality for people and cities… OUTRA VEZ!”

New technical possibilities, demographic trends and changing consumer behaviour are all putting traditional notions of mobility to the test. Consumers are demanding new, integrated mobility offers. At the same time, people’s traditional mobility patterns are being questioned. In order to overcome some of the most prominent challenges and to be able to move fast forward to smart and sustainable societies, the ECOMM 2020 conference wants to actively encourage the debate on new mobility solutions at European level.

  • MaaS, Mobility as a Service: a New Transport Model
  • Circular Economy and shared Economy: Mobility a Business?
  • The Future of Mobility: Disruptive Technologies Create New Realities
  • How to “Nudge” People into New Mobility Thinking and behaviour
  • New Mobility – An Opportunity for Urban and Rural Regeneration
  • Inequalities – Mobility management as a tool for social inclusion
