DiPP - "Smart mobility: has the revolution stalled?"
We would like to invite you to our next Digital in Practice Programme on:
'Smart mobility: has the revolution stalled?'
25 May 2018, 08:30 – 10:00, Brussels
On taking up this issue in March 2017, our experts made it clear that ICT is fast transforming the highly complex and critically important automotive business. The European Commission has spared no time or effort to help all key stakeholders produce the GEAR2030 report of November 2017 that paves the way for addressing the main challenges in a coordinated fashion.
Not only business will be disrupted well beyond the automotive sector as data ownership and liability call for innovative solutions in spare parts, insurance, road signaling, etc but our daily life will never be the same either: shared mobility makes owning a vehicle a goal of the past, safety concerns rise with every bump in road-testing autonomous cars, ethics lies in the back of everybody’s mind as AI gradually crowds humans out of decisions that used to be in their hands for more than a century.
Time to convene another debate to shed light on where smart mobility is taking us! These experts have kindly agreed to launch the conversation on 25 May:
- Eddy Hartog, Head of Unit, Smart Mobility & Living, DG CONNECT, European Commission
- Fazilet Cinaralp, Secretary General, European Tyre & Rubber Manufacturers’ Association (ETRMA)
- Joost Vantomme, Smart Mobility Director, European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA)
- Christoph Lütge, Professor of Business Ethics, Technische Universität München
- Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, Director General of DIGITALEUROPE
In keeping with the DiPP spirit, we are happy to invite you to contribute your thoughts and experience to this informal exchange of views that will fit the Chatham House rule.
Registration: The number of seats is limited. Please register online before 23 May.
The Digital in Practice Programme aims to make a case for the digital industry and to evidence the transformative impact of digital products and services. By fostering short, crisp and open debates between leading experts and interested guests, our workshops afford the industry, policy makers and other key stakeholders a powerful educational platform where to share information and discuss informally how a truly ICT-enabled Europe will look like.
We hope that you will be able to join!
