European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc, in cooperation with the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU, has the pleasure to announce the Digital Transport Days 2019.

The event will offer a European viewpoint to digital solutions for transport and mobility.

Participants will get a chance to learn about the latest developments in the field, and help define and implement enabling policies, as well as developing customer-oriented services.

Here are just some of the questions that will be addressed over the 3 days, during 2 plenary and 24 parallel sessions:

  • What is the key to making key data available in a reusable format?
  • How will the move to digital freight look? • What do passengers expect from new mobility services?
  • Where can technologies such as 5G, AI, IoT, big data and blockchain enable innovative solutions for each transport mode?
  • Will the societal impact always be positive?
  • Can digitalisation really contribute to decarbonisation?

Council of the European Union (Council)

In the Council, government ministers from each EU country meet to discuss, amend and adopt laws, and coordinate policies. The ministers have the authority to commit their governments to the actions agreed on in the meetings.

Together with the European Parliament , the Council is the main decision-making body of the EU.

Not to be confused with:

  • European Council - quarterly summits, where EU leaders meet to set the broad direction of EU policy making
