Dear members,

Before InfoPolis embarks on a short summer break, I would like to highlight our next Working group meetings to look forward to:

As you can see, most of our Working Groups are combined with other key events, conferences or workshops in order to allow you to attend more than one meeting, at once. In particular, the first Polis Small and Medium-Sized Cities (SMCs) Platform meeting taking place in Bilbao is organised back to back with the Working Group on Clean Vehicles, on 26 September and a workshop of the ASSURED project, on 27 September 2019. There are limited opportunities for the reimbursement of travel expenses covered by the ASSURED project. Please, click here to benefit from this opportunity!

Last but not least, I invite you to consult the freshly released draft programme of our annual Polis conference taking place on 27-28 November in Brussels and to reserve your seat as of now!

Our bimonthly newsletter will be back on the last week of August.

I wish you a pleasant read and, above all, a pleasant and relaxing holiday break!

Kind regards,

Karen Vancluysen

Polis Secretary General
