XXII SIDT National Scientific Seminar

XXII Seminario Scientifico Nazionale SIDT – Società Italiana dei Docenti di Trasporti

POLITECNICO DI BARI – Aula magna “Attilio Alto” 14 – 15 SETTEMBRE 2017






On September 2015 the Heads of State and Government and High Representatives, meeting at United Nations Headquarters, have agreed on new global Sustainable Development Goals that constitute the so-called 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The agenda is based on 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets that are integrated and indivisible and which balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.

Most of the 17 goals of the 2030 agenda depend on targets directly or indirectly related to Transport Systems, such as the Goal 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities” that aims at:

  • providing access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all, improving road safety, notably by expanding public transport;
  • supporting positive economic, social and environmental links between urban, peri-urban and rural areas by strengthening national and regional development planning.

As a matter of fact, transport systems are relevant to foster many other targets such as the use of new technologies and methodologies for sustainable mobility and logistics, to increase accessibility to social and health services, facilities and work opportunities, to empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion, to support economic growth by innovative and greener logistic patterns.

Therefore, methods and technologies can contribute to innovate transport systems by providing good solutions in line with the 2030 Agenda, by improving safety and efficiency of vehicles so as of traffic flows, fostering a systems engineering approach, allowing diffusion new and greener propulsion systems, smart shared mobility patterns, green intermodal freight transport and city logistics, even by means of ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems), by developing transport systems which can be sustainable through their whole life-cycle (LCC).

The main issues of this scientific seminar is to set the advanced of research in transport systems, services and solutions, taking into particular account the issues related to the mobility and logistics for the sustainability of the cities in the near future.

The research contributions could be focused on both methodological and technological innovative solutions looking at their environmental, social and economic issues.

A. Methods and models for greener transportation systems
