Hypermotion 2018

20.11.2018, Frankfurt, Germany

The boundaries between logistics, mobility, infrastructure and transport are falling. New, networked, integrated and inter-modal systems are being created. To reflect these changes and to discuss their impact on the economy and society, Messe Frankfurt launches the new trade fair Hypermotion. This event will be the first independent platform with digital transformation in the mobility and transport sector as the superordinate theme.

The key point of approach is via the already recognised concept of intelligent transport systems (ITS) which can be made future proof by looking at it from the point of view of digitalisation, and should be developed further.

The seven thematic areas – Connectivity (basically ITS as we know it to date), Monitoring & Transparency, Data Analytics & Security, Hypermodality, Sustainability, Synchronized & urban Logistics and Smart & digital Regions – are all interlinked and encompass the core elements of the transport systems of both today and tomorrow:

  • Infrastructure (different types of transport, including planning, financing)
  • Equipment (vehicles, including development and financing)
  • Services & applications (including research and start-ups)

Exploring women & transport at the nexus of research, policy & practice

Save the date and join the flone initiative on November 22nd – 23rd in Nairobi for this first annual conference with transport workers, researchers and policy makers on how to support women in public transportation in the region!

Freedom of movement is a human right, yet public transportation is notoriously dangerous for women, children, people living with disabilities and other vulnerable groups. We believe in empowering women to create a more equitable and sustainable public transportation system for everyone!

Building on the amazing momentum created at the WomenMobilizeWomen Conference in Leipzig, Germany, Flone Initiative and partners are organizing an international dialogue on issues affecting women in transportation in Eastern Africa.

COP 24, Katowice, Poland

03.12.2018, Katowice, Poland

COP24 is the informal name for the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The UNFCCC is a “Rio Convention”, one of three adopted at the “Rio Earth Summit” in 1992. The UNFCCC entered into force on 21 March 1994. Today, it has near-universal membership. The countries that have ratified the Convention are called Parties to the Convention. Preventing “dangerous” human interference with the climate system is the ultimate aim of the UNFCCC.  The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the supreme body of the UNFCCC Convention. It consists of the representatives of the Parties to the Convention. It holds its sessions every year.

The COP takes decisions which are necessary to ensure the effective implementation of the provisions of the Convention and regularly reviews the implementation of these provisions. In accordance with a decision of the 22nd Session of the Conference of the Parties to the Climate Convention (COP22) in Marrakesh in November 2016, the successive climate summit will be held in Poland. Poland was selected to host this event within the framework of the Eastern European Group (EEG). Poland will hold the Presidency of the Climate Convention for the third time and Prof. Jan Szyszko, its Minister of the Environment, will take the position of the COP President for the second time. COP24 will take place from 3-14 December 2018, in Katowice, Poland.
