Smart mobility: is the EU in pole position in the global race?

30 Mar 2020
Webinar - (Link to the webinar will be shared after registration)

An expert report released by the Commission had this to say about Smart Mobility:

“Digitisation is currently reshaping the sector. Traditional automotive, public and private transport models are being challenged as new players are emerging with disruptive service offerings while new models are blurring traditional demarcations between public transport and private mobility. Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) will increasingly catalyse the public-private co-development and co-delivery of mobility and transport systems and services, as well as shared and open use of public space, data and infrastructure.”

They went on to say:

“So far, policy and innovation efforts remain overwhelmingly focused on incrementally optimising existing private motorisation modes (‘default car’) and automobile technologies rather than on leveraging integrated transport and mobility strategies. Breaking this path-dependency is a key innovation challenge.”

As a new Commission is betting the Union on a European Green Deal and on digitisation, DIGITALEUROPE wants to take up this challenge, with a DiPP-style debate.
