The transport sector is facing huge challenges in the coming decades: Rising congestion every year, unresolved local emissions from transport and an ever increasing demand make it a challenge to tackle the impeding climate crisis. Still, concrete goals have been formulated and the direction is clear: we need to go for more awareness, avoidance of unnecessary kilometres, a shift towards the more active and environmentally friendly modes and an anticipation of new technologies! But how can we close the gap between where we are now and the goals that are put forward? The upcoming MOBI Seminar on November 14th, 2019 titled ‘Closing the gap in mobility: from objectives towards reality’ will offer insights into the state-of-the-art in research and tackle three prominent themes which all struggle with the same question: How can we close the gap?

  • Towards an electric, connected and self-driving future
  • Towards a zero-emission city distribution
  • Towards the digitalization of the transport system

Discover our program with a keynote by Olivier Vanden Eynde , CEO of Close the gap, Prof. Dr. Cathy Macharis on how to close the gap towards climate neutral transport, Prof. Lieselot Vanhaverbeke on how to close the gap towards autonomous, electric and connected mobility, Dr. Sara Verlinde on how to close the gap towards zero emission city distribution, Prof. Tias Guns on how to close the digitalization gap and closing remarks from Prof. Michael Browne , University of Gothenborg.
