The digitalization and connectivity enables new possibilities for optimization the transport systems. The individual traffic could cooperate with the public transportation for persons and the logistic systems for transportation of goods. New ideas are obviously presented in many publications, but the realization is becoming more difficult in case of regulations and the well known old economy.

What will be the topics which have to be solved in the near future? How can the academia help to find new platforms for cooperation and to create the necessary environment for new system-thinking? What challenges we have to solve for the implementation of a wider electromobility?

In the presentation some experiences and actual trends in the automotive industry will be presented to show some possible ways for future research cooperation.

The event is free of charge but you must register to participate. Please register by 14th of September
