HARMONY participed with a very active role at POLIS 21 through various partners of the project. UCL MaasLab and Rotterdam presented the development and experiences of the project at the event.
What is POLIS?
POLIS is the leading network of Euopean cities and regions working together to develop innovative technologies and policies for local transport. POLIS supports the exchange of experiences and the transfer of knowledge between European local and regional authorities. They also facilitate the dialogue between local and regional authorities and other mobility stakeholders such as industry, research centres and universities, and NGOs.
The POLIS Annual Conference provides an opportunity for cities and regions to showcase their transport achievements to a large audience of mobility experts, practitioners and decision makers.
Why did HARMONY participate?
HARMONY participated in POLIS21 as an innovative H2020 research and innovation project providing decision makers with the necessary information and tools for making sustainable mobility a reality.
UCL presented HARMONY on Day 1 during the Parallel Session 1C “The vertical dimension” with a presentation on urban air mobility, focusing on the co-creation experience in Trikala and GZM. Also, UCL participated in Parallel Session 4B “Vehicle automation” on Day 2 with a presentation on the project holistic impact evaluation framework for autonomous vehicles and drone demonstrations, focusing on the case study of Oxfordshire.
Finally, the city of Rotterdam explained the role HARMONY is playing in their city both in Parallel Session 3F “Urban frieght: zooming on zero” and Parallel Session 4G “Future scenarios for urban freight: data, modelling, and simulation zero”.
