Event Details

The CIVITAS Forum Conference 2021 is taking place in Aachen, Germany, on 20 and 21 October. Over the course of its two days, it will continue the tradition of offering interactive workshops, intriguing sessions, and interesting site visits, whilst introducing exciting new programme elements.

This year’s edition will utilise a hybrid format, combining online and onsite activities, and focuses on “Smart routes towards climate-neutral cities”. This builds on the European Commission’s mission to create 100 climate-neutral cities by 2030, with urban transport and mobility being key elements.

EIT Urban Mobility will be present in CIVITAS Forum Conference 2021 with two sessions:

  • Maria Tsavachidis, CEO of EIT Urban Mobility, participates at the panel discussion of the Opening Plenary, taking place on 20 October at 11.00-12.30 CET. This session will discuss the ambition and opportunities offered by the Horizon Europe Smart and Climate Neutral Cities mission to reach 100 climate-neutral cities by 2030, a strategy which is fully anchored on the European Green Deal to make Europe climate neutral by 2050.
  • Bernadette Bergsma, Director of Communications and EU Affairs, participates at Session 10 Beyond funding – new initiatives and opportunities for synergies, taking place on 21 October at 13.45-15.15 CET (parallel session 4).
