European Transport Conference 2022 (ETC)
September 7 - September 9
The European Transport Conference (ETC) is the annual conference of the Association for European Transport, attracting transport policy makers, practitioners and researchers from all over Europe and beyond. ETC offers in-depth presentations on policy issues, best practice and research findings across the broad spectrum of transport. ETC also provides an opportunity where delegates can enjoy networking opportunities, participate in technical visits, and explore the exhibition.
In the last two years of the Covid pandemic AET has organized two successful multi-stream online ETC conferences that were positively evaluated by the attendees. The events were attended by more than 500 people each and delivered a full three day programme with over 150 sessions in two years.
It is acknowledged that the real value of ETC is in the networking opportunities and the ability to make new connections and reaffirm old professional friendships. There is no substitute for those impromptu encounters during coffee breaks when discussion among delegates generates new ideas and contacts.
Therefore AET is aiming for a full three-day conference at the Bovisa Campus of Politecnico di Milano. We have a good feeling that this will be possible, and are looking forward to welcome you this year at our 50th conference.
The 2022 conference will be a special occasion – it will be the 50th to be held. ETC will take as its main theme:
“Behaviour Change – the impacts of the climate emergency and COVID-19 on long term travel patterns”.
There will be some reflection on the development of transport planning since the early 1970s but the main focus will be on the future and how the profession can respond to the challenges of climate change and of life post-Covid.
