The Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India has a flagship initiative called Urban Mobility India, an annual conference and expo that brings together leading policy makers, key decision makers, and top industry leaders with technology experts in the fields of sustainable urban transport including rail and road transport.
This is the 3rd Annual Conference and Expo will be held from Dec 3rd - Dec 5th 2010 in New Delhi.
The theme for UMI 2010 is “Sustainable Urban Transport : Accessible and Inclusive Cities”
To encourage the interest of budding young professionals and students in the fields of urban transport, a fellowship program is being run to financially sponsor the participation of 350 fellows from various technical and non technical backgrounds.
Fellows will get the chance to directly interface with world leaders in urban transport such as Peter Hendy, Commissioner, Transport for London, and other such movers and shakers in the field.
The aim of this program is to bring together a multi disciplinary student and youth body to engage with various stakeholders such as the government, industry and civic societies to publicly discuss the challenges that face India’s cities today. Applications for the UHF fellows program can be accessed online on the event site: www.urbanmobility2010.org
