We would like to invite you to be our guest at NISTO’s conference on SMART MOBILITY PLANNING.




Best practices – Tools – Future challenges


taking place on

3rd of November 2014, 12:30 PM – 6:00 PM followed by an Evening Reception

at the Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU,

Rue Montoyer 21, 1000 Brussels, BE.


The mobility and transport planning will face major challenges: Urbanization, demographic change and new technologies. The Interreg IVB-Project “NISTO” (New Integrated Smart Transport Options) develops a new integrated evaluation methodology to support smart and sustainable mobility planning. This is the NISTO mid-term conference.

The conference will also provide the opportunity to network and discuss future development proposals in the areas of Mobility Planning, Logistics, Electro-Mobility, and Intelligent Transport Systems ahead of forthcoming H2020 and Interreg calls.


We are looking forward to your participation!

* Further Information on the Parallel Workshops in the Afternoon Session

Please choose one of the following Afternoon Workshops during registration.

The Parallel Workshops will give an overview on the future funding possibilities for projects with the following topics within several funding programmes as INTERREG, Horizon 2020 and CIVITAS. In addition the parallel workshops give an insight on the different topics and allow the participants to discuss and get to know potential project partners.


Workshop 1: Mobility Planning

Achieving sustainable urban mobility requires the adoption of new strategic transport planning approaches at the local level which cover passenger and freight transport in an integrated way. This workshop aims to develop collaboration for future projects for the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme and the upcoming calls of INTERREG IVB.


Workshop 2: Logistics

Freight transport accounts for around 30% of transport carbon emissions but often is a neglected area. Internet of things and cloud computing coupled with intelligent transport systems will have a significant impact on freight transport. Yet their application in improving supply chain performance, in particular in the context of global multimodal transport, is yet to be fully explored.


Workshop 3: Electro-Mobility

The limited driving range of electric vehicles is one of the biggest deployment challenges for electro-mobility. The European Commission through its flagship Horizon 2020 programme is requesting proposals that will meet this challenge. It is the objective of this workshop to discuss solutions and decide how to take these forward into a proposal submission.


Workshop 4: Intelligent Transport Systems

ITS aims to provide innovative services relating to different modes of transport and traffic management and enables various users to be better informed and make safer, more coordinated, and 'smarter' use of transport networks. The implementation and improvement of such intelligent systems will be only one topic to discuss in this workshop.
