Dear members,

Only one more week and we will meet most of you at this year's Polis Conference and the Annual General Assembly (AGA), where Polis members will set the network's 2015 strategy and and new opportunities for funding will be presented.

The final conference programme has been released today and we look forward to an impressive number of interesting parallel sessions, four exciting visits to some of Madrid's innovative transport measures and numerous excellent networking opportunities!

For 25 years now, Polis has supported cities and regions in achieving more sustainable transportation through innovative solutions. Since 2014 marks our "25th birthday" we are inviting you and your respective Brussels offices to the first Polis Urban Mobility Breakfast on 3 December 2014. Read more about it in this InfoPolis.

I look forward to meeting many of you next week and wish you a pleasant read.

Yours sincerely,
Karen Vancluysen
Executive Director
