Dear members,

In the coming weeks Polis is organising two working groups meetings. On 19 May our Working Group on Traffic efficiency and Mobility will meet in Brussels to discuss automated vehicles and Mobility as a Service in view of the upcoming Polis position paper on these topics. I would also like to remind you of the CIMEC final conference taking place the day before, where the project will share its main findings regarding C-ITS and what plans are required for cities to move towards C-ITS deployment.

The next Urban Freight Working Group meeting will be held on Monday 22 May and is organised back-to-back with the EC Collaborative Innovation Days - Urban Logistics Workshop on the 23rd of May.

The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project has launched a call for applications for its Innovation Pilot Pool (IPP): If you are interested in joining its activities and help SUMP development in European cities, you have time until 24th May 2017 to apply.

Last but not least, the call for speakers for this year’s Polis conference on 6 and 7 December in Brussels is open until 29 May and we are looking forward to receiving many proposals from your side on your urban transport innovations!

Please login to the Polis website as a member to access all information addressed to Polis members only (green headline). If you do not know your login details, please contact us.

For now, I wish you a pleasant read.

Kind regards,

Karen Vancluysen
