HARMONY project - public launch event

07/06/2019

Access to key activity hubs has deteriorated and private vehicle reliance has grown, largely due to expanding urban sprawl where distances between functional destinations (workplaces/shops etc.) have increased.

Widespread congestion has become the norm in many cities, reducing people’s quality of life through negative externalities, such as pollution or increased travel times. Today, new mobility services and technologies present a possible solution.

However, authorities face several challenges when it comes to harmoniously integrating these developments into spatial and transport plans. How can traditional and new transport modes therefore be integrated in harmony?

An event organised by the new CIVITAS project HARMONY will examine this crucial question.

Taking place in London on 7 June, it will gather transport and spatial planning professionals, public authorities and policy makers, mobility technology developers, autonomous vehicles and drone manufacturers, and researchers to discuss the spatial and transport planning challenges metropolitan areas face in terms of integrating traditional and new transport modes.
