"The future transport system: a public-private enterprise embracing infrastructure and vehicles across all modes"

The FEHRL Infrastructure Research Meeting 2017 (FIRM17), held every two years and now in the fourth edition of its current format, is for the second time open to all transport modes with speakers and participants from the logistics sector. This key event will be held in English and costs only 190 Euros per person (for three days conference, exhibition entrance and cocktail).
FIRM17 aims to gather around 100 transport infrastructure innovation and research experts, including European and national policy makers, leading industry and SMEs, standardisation agencies and the media.
The main highlights of FIRM17 will be:
 1.  The presentation of various strategic programmes from FEHRL, the European Commission, CEDR, PIARC, ERTRAC, ECTP and ALICE;
 2.  A round table about "Automated connected vehicles, car-sharing and electrification: How to tackle the imminent disruption to mobility their combined deployment will bring?";
 3.  The final conferences of the two Horizon 2020 projects USE-iT and REFINET, and
 4.  A workshop about training and knowledge transfer for transport stakeholders supported by the SKILLFUL project.

FIRM17 will also include a session about the ERA-NET Plus INFRAVATION programme and a mini-exhibition.
