European Transport Research and Innovation Week

Brno, Czech Republic – May 11-15, 2009

The ETRIW event was hosted by ECTRI member CDV, in the frame of the EU-Czech Presidency. This event was a follow- up of the EU-French Presidency event of 8-12 December 2008, which took place in Lyon, France. ETRIW gathered the signatories of the Lyon Declaration, representatives of the European Commission, key European transport research associations, networks of excellence and technology platforms, including the meeting of the FP7 Transport Program Committee. In particular, ECTRI held its General Assembly and Board meetings and the Thematic Working Groups (TWGs) on Freight Transport, on Safety and Security and on Urban Mobility met during that week. The central theme of this European event was «Urban mobility in the light of Lisbon strategy», which resulted in the signature of the ‘Brno Declaration’. ECTRI TWG on Urban Mobility participated to this related Conference with a presentation by the group moderator Nadine Mordant along the implementation of the EC Green Paper “Towards a New Urban Mobility Culture”. Following the initiative of the ‘Lyon Declaration’, the ‘Brno Declaration’ focusing on mobility research and policy, was signed on May 13 by ECTRI, EURNEX, FEHRL, FERSI and HUMANIST.
