The CISB 3rd Annual Meeting gathered the Members of the Center and several actors from Government, Industry and Academia from Sweden and Brazil. Two workshops were held, Attractive Cities and Transport & Logistics. At this time we could discuss challenges, share experiences and propose solutions. From these discussions, 29 ideas were generated, which already have a schedule of continuity over the next year. Technical missions were organized and were connected to the discussions in the workshops, thus contributing to the direction of solutions.

The Center also celebrates the strengthening of the partnership with Lindholmen Science Park (LSP), and the new partnership with CILIP (Center for Innovation in Logistics and Port Infrastructure) of USP (University of São Paulo), which were co-organizers of Transport & Logistics Workshop.
