Mobility challenges are a worldwide priority. Mobility means access to jobs, education, culture, leisure, health care and quality of life. Mobility is also a political necessity, since it is so closely connected to social inclusion. The whole world is undergoing an industrial revolution, and for the transport industry, digitalization means a revolution in mobility services. Society is changing, and we can see new ways of consuming mobility services. Main megalopolis are all working, in ways specific to their context, on jointly optimizing high speed network and heavy transit systems as well as promoting multimodality, HOV lane, managed lane, renewable energy, clean infrastructure, and connected and autonomous vehicles…Through that lens, worldwide experts will share their ideas that work as well as failures, experiences, solutions to provide new options to boost mobility services with equal access to all users. New skills and knowledge for the future of the European economy are also crucial. Speaker of the sessions will present a set of approaches and solutions applied, in addition to focusing on urbanization trends within major metropolitan worldwide with example of implementation as well as to provide answers on training and education to prepare ourselves for future transport challenges.
The session will allow discussion with European Commission representative, presenters from other part of the world as well as corridors representatives from Arc Atlantique, Medtis with the EIP platform to deal with the issue of mobility challenges (traffic management services, dedicated lanes for autonomous vehicle, shared mobility, new concepts of mobility plan…...).
