  • ECOMM 2021 - live streamed from Cascais on 24 -25 November!

    The Municipality of Cascais has canceled all indoor events until the end of this year but is still driven by the strong wish to showcase the innovative projects, ideas and solutions, that have been submitted for a presentation on-site. Dive into the online world of creative and sustainable ideas for the Beginning of a New Era:

    More than ever, the goal of achieving sustainable transport modes putting users first and providing them with more affordable, accessible, healthier, and cleaner alternatives to their current mobility habits and patterns. Automated and connected multimodal mobility must play an increasing role, together with smart traffic management systems offered by digitalization. On the other hand, it is crucial to think and plan the cities, in order to ensure the essential services and proximity functions, equipment, and identity, while simultaneously creating spaces that are adjustable and flexible to support fast changes.

    How to ensure affordability, accessibility and safety for all? Which strategies must be employed to reduce the need to travel? How to implement mobility hubs to induce co-mobility and shared mobility, integrating several modes of transport as well as creating urban spaces and greener environments? How to afford Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems?

    Considering the necessary deep changes in economy, society, policy, environment and technology, our future depends on the lessons we will learn from the moment we are living today and ECOMM 2021 wants to actively encourage the discussion and exchange on the Beginning of a New Era at European level.
