Electric mobility and low-noise asphalts: the LIFE E-VIA project and other contributions

The European project LIFE E-VIA organizes the free of charge workshop titled “Electric mobility and low-noise asphalts: the LIFE E-VIA project and other contributions”, during which some project partners will illustrate the progress of some ongoing activities, related to the design of a new low-noise asphalt and to the implementation of the pilot case in the city of Florence, and will exchange views with other realities dealing with sounds of electric vehicles and use of end-of-life tyres for several useful applications (e.g. low-noise asphalts).

The workshop is sponsored by AIA and is realised in collaboration with Associazione Pescas, HEAD Acoustics, Ecopneus and the LIFE NEREIDE project.

The workshop will be held on Friday 14th May 2021 from 14:00 to 16:10 in digital mode on the Microsoft Teams platform.

The event will be included in the International Year of Sound (IYS) initiatives promoted by the International Commission for Acoustics (ICA) and is linked to the INAD 2021 Noise Awareness Day.
