European Transport Conference 2020 – online
Each year the annual European Transport Conference (ETC) presents the opportunity to interact with a range of speakers across the Transport Industry. The range of topics, the multi-seminar approach and the networking environment make ETC unique among transport conferences.
The conference brings together researchers, policymakers and practitioners around ideas and visions of transport at European, national, regional and local levels. The ETC 2020 will be held from 9 to 11 September 2020 in an online format.
The conference will keep its unique identity of a multi-disciplinary, multi-seminar format but in an online environment. There will be a choice of up to 10 simultaneous seminars per day plus plenary sessions on the first and second days.

- Climate change.
