Save the date for the MORE Final Event, “Better streets for better cities”

The MORE final event, “Better streets for better cities”, will take place in Brussels, Belgium on 17-18 February 2022. Save the date!

As the MORE project draws to a close, the experts and practitioners who have contributed to shape innovative concepts and tools for the reallocation of road space will gather in Brussels to present their experience and findings.

Over the past three years, MORE has worked to identify existing and future pressures on busy roads connecting five European cities with the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). Such pressures include factors such as demographic change, technological advances, economic growth, and the evolution of lifestyles.

On 17 February, the event will address the concepts, context and challenges of street design, and will provide participants an opportunity to discuss topics such as bringing life back to streets post-COVID19, the advances in technologies that are and will be shaping our streets, and the ongoing revision of the EU TEN-T guidelines.

New process and tools to design the city of places

On the second day, Friday 18 February, participants will have the opportunity to get familiar with the tools developed within MORE to generate and assess design options, engage stakeholders in street design development and to simulate street behaviour.

Urban policy objectives are evolving. European cities are pursuing bold visions to transform from car-oriented cities to cities that promote sustainable urban mobility and better and more resilient urban environments, favouring street activities and social interactions. The tools and processes developed by MORE will guide transport and planning authorities in this process by engaging residents and stakeholders and considering the needs of all users.
