Europe’s Transport Commissioner Launches New Smart Mobility Platform
Europe’s Transport Commissioner, Violeta Bulc, today officially launched a new Europe-wide platform to create a marketplace for smart electromobility solutions.
The platform, known as EV4SCC, is led by Urban Foresight and represents 59 partners from 17 countries. EV4SCC brings together 15 cities and regions with start-ups, SMEs, research organisation, large companies and NGOs. It spans the sectors of transport, energy and ICT.
The launch took place at the Transport for Smart Cities Conference at the iconic Trainworld Railway Museum in Brussels. The event was organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG-MOVE) and brought together 150 selected practitioners and leaders from public and private sectors recognised as supporters of Smart Electromobility and New Mobility Services. This included Urban Foresight’s David Beeton and Karine Sbirrazzuoli, who was given the honour of presenting EV4SCC to the Conference delegates.
