TRACY-Project in Brussels

06.09.2012
Society is increasingly ageing, in light of this what steps are being taken to organize mobility for the elderly?

The Transport and Spatial Planning Institute of the University of Applied Sciences in Erfurt would like to invite participants to the 1st international conference of the EU research project TRACY (Transport needs for an ageing society), which will take place at November 14th 2012 in Brussels.

TRACY is funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme and is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Matthias Gather. The project’s main aim is to develop an action plan that can help tackle the challenges of providing transport in an ageing society.

The researchers have analysed available national sources from each of the 29 European contries and undertaken interviews with some countries to discuss the literature search. The state of the analyses in EU27 and international sectors will be presented and discussed during the conference.

The results and the output of the conference are the preparatory steps for the development of an action plan including guidelines and recommendations for specific research topics and future transport strategies. Alongside the european perspective, experiences from Japan and Australia will be presented.

Under the patronage of Dr. Dieter-L. Koch (Member of the European Parliament) the conference will bring together members of the European Parliament, representatives of Governmental Organisations from about 20 member states, researchers from European, Australian and Japanese universities, representatives of European institutions and business organisations as well as NGOs.

The conference is being hosted by the committee of regions, Rue Belliard 101, 1040 Brussels. The working language of the conference is english. The conference day on 14 November is free and open to non–members especially represantives from politics and european institutions with an confirmed registration.

We would also like to invite interested institutions, associations and NGOs to present relevant projects and results relating to demographic chance and mobility in the exhibition area.

The second day of the conference on November, 15th, 2012 is aimed to invited experts and organisations to exchange the topic in detail.
