But they also provide huge potential for innovation – in drive technology, in alternative fuels and in the way in which transportation is organized. Against this background, the panel explores how to achieve climate protection goals in the transport sector, particularly through ramp up of e-Mobility, and at the same time ensure competitiveness and a high level of employment in automotive and related industries. The panelists cover a wide range of perspectives from OEM over trade union to sustainability science.

Panel II: „Future Mobility – inspiring and user-centric“

Electromobility is a prime example of the strong interdependence between mobility supply, including innovative vehicles and suitable infrastructure, and user demand, e.g., for high range and fast charging. Successful interaction is crucial for a sustainable transformation of mobility. The panel will address the acceptance of electromobility among consumers and how people can be further enthused about it. In addition, approaches to overcoming barriers to building an adequate and economical charging infrastructure will be discussed. The panelists represent the provider and the user perspective.

Panel III: „Future Mobility – visionary, connected and safe“

Networking is a key feature of tomorrow’s mobility system. Vehicles are networked with other vehicles, with other road users and with the transport infrastructure. Autonomous shuttles complement public transport services. Mobility providers cooperate via digital platforms and create shared ecosystems of mobility data. How will this vision change the mobility economy, how can challenges in the digital transformation of the transport sector be overcome, and what role do field trials play in this? The panel with experts from public transport, OEMs and mobility service providers will shed light on these questions.
