MAYOR SUMMIT “HOW TO DO IT” GUIDES ON BIG AND OPEN DATA & GREENER TRANSPORT

“Earlier this year, as a part of the 12th European ITS Congress held in Strasbourg, ERTICO and the City Council organised the second Mayors’ Summit.  The aim was to have a mainly political, rather than technical, discussion on transport in cities.  We wanted to learn about cities’ biggest transport concerns and the policies they wanted to implement.  We asked them to identify where they had found efficient and effective solutions and generally share experiences so that we could match problems to solutions where they had been found and across Europe all cities could benefit.  And we wanted to compile a list of topics where solutions, or better or cheaper solutions, were needed so that we could talk to research and development agencies and the associated funders about starting work in these key areas.”
