New CIVITAS e-course examines integration of urban nodes into TEN-T networks

Ten T Networks

The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) aims to create a Europe-wide network of railway lines, roads, inland waterways, maritime shipping routes, ports, airports and railroad terminals.

Given TEN-T's aim to close gaps and remove bottlenecks across this continent-wide transport network, the integration of urban nodes (utban areas) is vital.

This four-week CIVITAS e-course will look at how to go about doing so. Much of its knowledge will be drawn from the NUVit/Vital Nodes methodology. Concluding at the end of 2019, Vital Nodes worked to enable efficient, sustainable freight delivery across TEN-T urban nodes, and developed its own methodology to achieve this.

As they move through the course, learners will be supported by thematic experts and use a rich variety of learning materials to deepen their understanding of the topic.

A launch webinar on Monday 18 May, 13:00 - 14:00 CEST, will introduce the course and the methodology. Speakers include city representatives who participated in Vital Nodes workshops.

Register here to take part in the launch webinar and read more on the agenda. Enrol now for the the e-course.
