On November 25 2022, an online kick-off meeting was held in the Green. Transport. Deal Project.

The purpose of the meeting was to introduce the partners involved in the project and to present its main objectives and research methodology.

In their statements, participants noted the need to disseminate knowledge on the assumptions of the Green Deal and the Sustainable& Smart Mobility Strategy.

Attention was paid to local climate policies, the development of electromobility as well as the special position of small and medium-sized enterprises.
