Alliance for Mobility of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia
"Mobility of people and goods is constantly changing and is in increasing demand. Digitization opens up new mobility options for society and the economy, but also opportunities for quality improvements, effective and efficient processes, and reduced environmental and climate impact. Mobility is equally a prerequisite for social participation and for economic success, growth, prosperity and employment. Mobility must be thought of from the user's perspective."
Really well connected
„We, communes, states and federal government, have a joint goal: sustainable, climate-friendly mobility in the countryside and city.
In the national competence-network for sustainable mobility, short NaKoMo, we are going for it together. Here we connect, here we are in exchange.“

OCA Open Traffic Systems City Association e.V.
“The Open Traffic Systems City Association (OCA) represents the interests of public road network authorities and operators of transport control technology and transport management systems. Our members are responsible for ensuring all modes of transport within urban areas function smoothly. Aligning day-to-day business operations with modern and future-oriented technologies and processes is a particular challenge that can only succeed with well networked partners. Networking in mobility is the challenging organisational task that we set ourselves. polisMOBILITY is the perfect platform for learning from applied best practices and discovering new solutions and approaches.”
Anton Bauer, Chairman of the Executive Board, OCA (City of Munich)
"The mobility of the future opens up many opportunities if the associated challenges are solved step by step. Automation and networking offer great potential to meet these challenges.

The polisMOBILITY offers the perfect platform to bring stakeholders together and promote dialogue. That's why innocam.NRW is pleased to be part of the trade fair and to stimulate this dialogue with interactive formats."
