The European Transport Conference (ETC) is the annual conference of the Association for European Transport (AET), attracting transport policy makers, practitioners and researchers from all over Europe and beyond. ETC offers in-depth presentations on policy issues, best practice and research findings across the broad spectrum of transport.
The range of topics with the multi-seminar approach makes ETC unique among transport conferences and it has established itself as the premier event of its type. The conference programme covers supranational issues, national and local policy and the planning and implementation of projects at a local level.
As transport policy makers, practitioners and researchers throughout Europe respond to the challenges of climate change, social and demographic change, economic growth, equality issues, and the impacts of future technology such as connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), ETC provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of robust and affordable responses.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AET organized in 2021 a successful multi-stream online ETC conference that was attended by more than 500 people between 7 and 15 September.
