Green mobility network
Transport 2.0 – Network for Green Mobility is a collaboration established on the basis of the need for conversion to a more sustainable transport system. Since 2014, the network has collaborated on establishing innovation projects, contributing to relevant research and competence development. It is an open network for anyone who wishes to contribute to conversion to more sustainable mobility.
The network facilitates participation by public administration, industry, research and education institutions and voluntary organizations. The geographical center of gravity for projects and activities is in the municipalities west of Oslo.
The background for the conference:
In its new Transport 2025 program, the Research Council of Norway emphasizes that ongoing planning and development work has to be supplemented with a heavier focus on research, innovation and competence. The EU’s Flagship for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020, now establishes “Smart, Green and Integrated Transport” as a new program.
We took the opportunity to highlight the importance of innovation, research and expertise in the development of tomorrow’s transport solutions: Transport 2.0. Through exciting current projects, we showed the opportunity to engage in the development of smarter solutions. The conference was therefore also aimed at developing ideas for actions in their own business. Parts of the conference served as a workshop.

Vestregionen is a regional cooperative body for 16 municipalities west of Oslo, together with the municipalities in Akershus and Buskerud. The west region has three priority areas: Regional development where land use and transport are a key focus area, health and culture.
