Dear members,

We are pleased to welcome La Spezia, IT, as a new member! With many efforts in the development of ITS solutions including multi-modal smart cards, info-mobility services, a new freight parking management scheme and others, La Spezia also contributes to open ITS specifications in the POSSE project. We look forward to a fruitful cooperation and swift integration into the Polis network!

We would also like to draw your attention on the funding opportunity for mobility campaigners, which opened this week: Within the European Commission's "Do the right Mix" campaign EUR 7000 are available for each selected action. Read more about it in this InfoPolis.

When you are logged in as a member to the Polis website, you will have access to a considerably enhanced database of documents, events and news compared to the public website.

Yours sincerely,
Sylvain Haon
