On 17th and 18th September 2013, the first MOWE-IT workshops, dedicated to rail and road transport, took place in Brussels, Belgium. The events were a great success in terms of high-level participation, engagement of the public and stimulating ideas arising from the discussion.
MOWE-IT chose a participative approach to make the maximum out of the meetings: presentations and key studies from experts were spaced out by discussions in smaller groups and thematic round tables, calling an active participation of all attendees.
European and international experts, both from academic and business areas, brought their experience and perspectives from a variety of sectors, including economy, logistic, weathers forecast, and emergency management, proving that a successful strategy to mitigate weather events must count on a multi-disciplinary approach, collaboration among a large number of stakeholders, and overall coordination among different authorities.
