eseia´s continuous effort, made in the past months to build up a strong consortium for the KIC proposal wemove2zero , has born its fruits. New organisations decided to join the Alliance. With their strong expertise in the field of urban mobility, they will contribute to expand the skills and knowledge of eseia´s Working Group on Smart Cities and Regions.
