ECCENTRIC was represented by different partners in numerous sessions and the project also hosted a stand including newly produced fact sheets about some of the most progressed mobility measures. In addition to the presentations, Mr. Martin Schreiner from Munich represented the CIVITAS ECCENTRIC PAG in the CIVITAS Politicians Forum and brought in goals, relevant topics and outcomes of the PAG and the project. The meeting outcomes are also part of the official PAC statement 2018 which is delivering policy recommendations to the European Commission.

Finally, during the closing session of the Forum, the ECCENTRIC project received acknowledgement by the EU Deputy Director General for Mobility and Transport, Matthew Baldwin.

The next CIVITAS Forum 2019 will take place in the city of Graz, Austria.
