Innovation projects to move the city today and tomorrow

Friday, September 16, 2022 - 14:18

Barcelona will again be celebrating European Mobility Week, held this year from 16 to 22 September and promoting intermodal transport with the theme "Better connections".

A broad programme of over one hundred activities is planned for the week, organised by Barcelona City Council and by various organisations and associations linked to mobility. The goal is to underline the importance of getting around sustainably to improve air quality, regain public space and promote road safety.

By taking part in the event, Barcelona seeks to raise public awareness of the benefits of a friendly and traffic-calmed city, and of other uses of public space usually given over to private motor vehicles. The idea is also to raise awareness about the need to reduce the use of private motor vehicles and achieve a city with less pollution, and to promote more sustainable means of travel (on foot, by bike and public transport).

The IMI is taking part in a conference on innovation in mobility, to be held on 22 September from 9 am to 7.30 pm at the Institut d’Estudis Catalans (Carrer del Carme, 47, 08001 Barcelona), with a talk about innovative projects, discussing the European project Celeste. The talk will be given by Jordi Ortuño, Coordinator of Innovative Projects with the Office for Knowledge Society at the IMI.

During the conference, present and future mobility projects will be discussed and presented, with their promoters and users. The event will address topics such as innovation in active mobility and micromobility, along with shared mobility, electric mobility, mobility and urban goods distribution, plus innovation in data management.
