Summary

A big thank you to the over 100 delegates who attended The 4th Annual Future of Transport Conference! A selection of photos from the day are available here

 

Forum Europe’s 4th Future of Transport Conference focussed on the technological innovations revolutionising the transport sector and redefining Europe’s mobility systems. On 4 December in Brussels, participants debated the best ways to truly realise the opportunities offered by connected and autonomous vehicles, what can be done to realise a sustainable and multi-modal European transport system and to implement future-proof intelligent infrastructure based on secure 5G connectivity.

 

The Future of Transport conference gathered a wide-range of high-level experts who looked at how Europe can play a leading role in the development and implementation of transport innovation. The thread that will permeate the day is the creation of smart, sustainable and connected European transport systems.
