Launch of the Scan-Med Observatory
The City of Oslo and POLIS Network will launch the “Scan-Med Observatory” at the next European Week of Regions and Cities – an effort that is being undertaken as part of the MOVE21 project. Join the (online) discussion on integrating TEN-T and urban nodes at the EU policy level!
In the European Commission’s revised TEN-T regulation, the number of urban nodes in the network increased from 88 to 424, giving more importance to cities in TEN-T network development. This session will launch the Scan-Med Observatory – a new city-led initiative to pursue action on connected and climate-neutral cities and to ensure that local and regional perspectives are included in TEN-T priorities.
This new Observatory will facilitate dialogue across different administrative levels and stakeholders to make sure that the interfaces between the TEN-T network and metropolitan areas get necessary attention in new TEN-T regulations.
The Scan-Med Observatory and this launch event are part of the MOVE21 project; project partner cities include Oslo, Gothenburg, Hamburg, Munich, Bologna and Rome.
Who should attend?
- Everyone wishing to learn more about the role of urban nodes, cities and metropolitan areas in the revised Trans-European Transport (TEN-T) network.
- Everyone wishing to influence the work of the Scan-Med Observatory.
To join, register to the European Week of Regions and Cities, taking place on 10-13 October at this LINK.
