Founded in 2015, Autonomy & The Urban Mobility Summit annually brings together 8,000 visitors from all over the world to Paris to discuss mobility challenges and solutions.
Its goal is to support the transition to an intelligent and sustainable mobility by creating bridges between innovative companies that create mobility solutions adapted to contemporary challenges, and institutional and private decision-makers who are able to adopt and implement these solutions.
Smart City Expo World Congress exists in order to empower cities and collectivize urban innovation across the globe. Through promoting social innovation, establishing partnerships and identifying business opportunities, the event is dedicated to creating a better future for cities and their citizens worldwide.
With representatives from high profile companies already confirmed, attendees will have the opportunity to network and learn about the latest breakthroughs, innovations, challenges and solutions affecting the international public transport industry today.
A summary of the discussion on the Finnish Presidency priorities is now available.
The Transport Research Arena (TRA) is the largest European research and technology conference on transport and mobility. In 2020, TRA will take place in Helsinki, Finland and focus on the theme ‘Rethinking transport – towards clean and inclusive mobility’. It will bring together experts from around the world to discuss the newest innovations and future mobility and transport.
Once, they each had a dream to change the world with IT. Now, they’re working on it together. Technology and entrepreneurship fans Roman Prytkov and Tolga Varol met at the EIT Digital Master School, then jointly sowed the seeds for their startup DriveTrust during the Summer School. Before they had finished their master’s, they had already raised €1.5 million in funding when their Summer School project had become an EIT Digital Innovation Activity, seeing them partnering with big European companies.
This high-level seminar will present the findings and recommendations of a new CERRE study. The authors of the report will present their recommendations to fully and positively approach “Mobility as a Service”.
Automated vehicles will soon be a reality on our roads but their safe integration into a ‘mixed ability’ transport system will require careful attention. EU-funded research is addressing the challenges posed by specific traffic conditions and testing possible solutions.
The future of driverless cars depends on whether the industry can create reliable systems that make drivers feel safe. That is why an EU-funded project has been applying a human-centric approach to develop software that will reassure people using automated vehicles.
Digital technology that lets vehicles “talk” to each other and to the infrastructure (Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems, C-ITS) is key in moving towards a smart road transport sector. The European Commission, the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) and members of the C-ROADS platform met today in Eindhoven (The Netherlands), on the occasion of the ITS European Congress, to reinforce their commitment towards the deployment of C-ITS in Europe.
The conference attracts transport practitioners and researchers from all over Europe where they can find in-depth presentations on policy issues, best practice and research findings across the broad spectrum of transport. The range of topics and the multi-seminar approach makes ETC unique among transport conferences and it is well established as the premier event of its type. The conference programme covers supranational issues, national and local policy and the implementation of projects at a local level.
The Innovation in Freight Conference will take place on 18 June 2019 in Munich, and will cluster the results of seven projects (ARCC, FR8RAIL, FR8HUB, SMART, FFL4E, M2O, INNOWAG) running under Shift2Rail’s freight innovation programme, known as IP5. A wide spectrum of freight-related topics will be covered, ranging from new locomotive designs, longer and heavier trains, real time management of main lines and yards, intelligent freight wagon concepts, and automation and digitalisation of terminals to name but a few.
