Part 3 | Future Mobility: The technologies, innovations and industries we choose to support and scale will change the way we move for decades to come
Wednesday, 18th November 2020
2:30pm – 5:30pm CET
Disruption caused by the pandemic has impacted every industry, but none more so than the mobility and transport sectors. Region-wide lockdowns, thousands of grounded flights, restricted public transport and housebound citizens have changed the way people move.
Transport underpins our society. It connects people, cities, countries and economies, fostering growth and employment. As we reshape post-pandemic life, supporting the right technologies, creating digitally smart and connected systems and investing in low carbon infrastructure, we can choose to accelerate the transition to a digitally integrated and mobility system of the future.
Day Three explores how effective policy intervention combined with accelerated financing and investment in emerging technologies and alternative transportation modes could fundamentally redesign urban and long-distance travel.
- The future of transportation: connected, digital, low-carbon
- The impact of electrification on long-distance travel
- Investing and financing an EV infrastructure revolution
- Integrated, multi-modal transportation strategies for urban environments
- Leveraging connectivity and digital technologies to rethink urban mobility
- Rethinking urban transport: ownership or sharing, public transport, or micro-mobility
