Dear members,

It was a pleasure to see so many of you both during our second Governance & Integration working-group and the Clean Vehicle and Air Quality Working Group meeting in Brussels last week. All presentations are available on the members-only section of the website here. If you do not remember your login details, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our next Polis Working Group will focus on innovative Parking management and will take place in Lille on 27 and 28 March 2019. The agenda is very rich with several members who will be presenting their experiences on parking. The meeting will also include a presentation from the OECD and a bike tour site visit. More information is available through this link.

Finally, the first URBAN NODES FORUM will take place in Budapest on 3-4 April. It is organised by the Vital Nodes project and it will discuss the central role of Urban Nodes in the TEN-T networks both for freight and for passengers. Travel costs reimbursements are available for urban nodes representatives, infrastructure coordinators or logistics operators who wish to present their initiatives at the meeting. Detailed information can be found here.

For now, I wish you a pleasant read of our bimonthly newsletter!

Karen Vancluysen

Secretary General
