On 8-9 November, the CEI participated in the first conference on mobility in the Alps, organised by the EUSALP (EU Strategy for the Alpine Region) Action Group 4 (AG4) on Transport and Mobility in Innsbruck, Austria.

The meeting was open to the general public and provided a platform for direct exchange with politicians and stakeholders in the EUSALP framework. It was the first of a series of annual events on the theme of mobility in the Alps, organised by the EUSALP AG4 leader, the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino.

The CEI, permanent stakeholder within AG4, presented the main activities to be developed within the SULPiTER project, which encompasses three EUSALP Functional Urban Areas (FUAs): Stuttgart (Germany), Brescia (Italy) and Maribor (Slovenia). A fruitful discussion followed, outlining the need to enhance coordination between existing projects and activities in the area.

The audience also included representatives of EUSALP local, regional and national institutions, private operators and transport stakeholders as well as the DG REGIO of the European Commission.

The CEI will maintain contacts with EUSALP AG4 and contribute to its discussions, also with the results of SULPiTER as soon as they become available.
