Connected Transport Summit 2018: The future of mobility in the digital era

16 October, 2018

Traditional means of transport have entered the digital realm at an exponential rate – redefining modern mobility. Digital connectivity is not only a solution for new efficiency, safety and sustainability standards, but also a regulatory reality. Theory is turning into practice: so how will the authorities of today build the future of tomorrow?

The EU’s third and final installment of its ‘Europe on the Move’ mobility package was announced in May, the EU budget post-2021 is subject to intense negotiations and there have been agreements on key digital files, so lawmakers are grappling with the nuts and bolts of intelligent transport systems, autonomous vehicles, data management, research spending priorities, smart cities and multi-modal networks.

  • What are the most promising real-world applications of technology in connected transport from vehicle to vehicle communication to satellite technology, platooning and mobility services?
  • What are the key regulatory challenges to multimodal networks ?
  • How will lawmakers mitigate the risks to connected transport systems while simultaneously protecting consumers and allowing innovation?
  • Where should resources be concentrated in research, application and infrastructure of alternative fuels?
  • How should the next multi annual financial framework be configured to fund transport projects?
  • How will key decision makers use the building blocks of connected transport – data(AI, 5G and all things digital); power (alternative fuels and decarbonization); money (financing and funding challenges) – to shape the future of mobility that is cooperative, connected, automated and intelligent ?

Join over 120 policymakers, experts, regulators and disruptors cross-cutting sectors such as transport, tech, telecommunications, energy and more for a full-day, highly-interactive summit in Brussels. POLITICO’s journalists will lead high-level interviews, dynamic discussions and breakout sessions.
