Driving Europe Forward: The Future of Mobility
As part of the Digital Single Market and the Single Market Strategies and the Union’s general move towards the electrification of mobility, EU policies towards adapting to and accommodating for new advances in mobility have become extremely topical, in particular for drivers and other consumers. The purpose of this event is to engage policymakers and citizens in the debates surrounding the future of auto mobility, namely new electric and autonomous vehicles.
This conference will focus on the two main areas that are defining and transforming cars as we know them - data-driven and environmentally sustainable vehicles. Innovation and research into both of these sectors of auto mobility are already underway, and EU legislators are beginning to work on and consider how Europe will adapt and contribute to these new realities. Although great advances are being made in both areas, they are rarely discussed in conjunction with one another. This conference would therefore look into both these areas, and then more generally at the larger picture of where we are headed with these new technological advancements, how consumers can fully benefit of the new developments and how the EU could and should play a role.
This conference will furthermore have a concrete example on display of how an industry, in this instance the Formula E race car industry, has adapted to this future.
