On the 16th of February 2021, the e-SMART partnership organized the second Transnational Living Lab under the title "The promotion of e-mobility in local public transport and last-mile-logistic from a territory's perspective". The main objective of the transnational living labs is to exchange on common challenges regarding regulation, implementation and policies of eletrified Local Public Transport (LPT) and Last-Mile Logstics (LML). The Living Labs are attended by stakeholders familiar with the project, but also new interested actors and external experts willing to give insights into their respective fields of action.

During this online meeting the 98 participants including e-SMART partners from different Alpine countries discovered what the e-SMART project has learned so far concerning the challenges for e-mobility in the fields of Last Mile Logistics and Local Public Transport.

The topics of the project were first adressed through a series of speeches from experts, and then after a quick online poll were discussed in smaller dedicated breakout sessions. The expert inputs were delivered by Martin Rheintaler, on a recent market study conducted in the city of Klagenfurt on joint electric charging infrastructure for LPT and LML. It was Christoph Möhring from the private form P3 Group who complemented his input from a private sector's perspective. Both presentations are available below.
