  • Conference - EESC, room JDE62 - Rue Belliard 99., 1040 Brussels, Belgium

    Conference. TRANSFORuM provides a platform for stakeholders of all areas of the European Transport sector to develop a common view and strategies of how four key goals of the 2011 White Paper on Transport can be achieved. Our underlying assumptions are that policy making should be based on an in-depth understanding of all stakeholders' positions and that co-ordinated action is more effective than solo attempts.

    This conference will look into what can be best done at EU level and propose priorities, strategies and an agenda for the years to come.
