Future of Transport 2021

The 6th Annual Future of Transport Conference

Event Overview

2020 has been a challenging year for the transport sector across Europe. The pandemic has impacted on the roll-out of infrastructure projects while operators and manufacturers have experienced significant impacts on revenues. The economic slowdown will further complicate the demand and supply of transport and mobility services.

However, the European Commission’s ambitious regulatory work continues, with the sustainable and smart mobility package announced in July 2020, alongside the broader European Green Deal project.

Forum Europe’s 6th Future of Transport conference will once again gather stakeholders to discuss and debate the critical pillars of EU transport policy and explore digital innovation, connectivity, safety and how the transport sector fits within the EU’s vision for an economy that is both green and digital.

Session 1: 5G in the Future of Connected Mobility

As the transport industry continues to undergo digital transformation, 5G will play an increasing role in the future of mobility. It is estimated that, as 5G networks are rolled out globally, over 700 million cellular IoT vehicles are forecast to be operational by the end of 2024, with a sizable portion of those destined for the automotive industry. This session will look at the opportunities and challenges brought by 5G in vehicle-to-everything (V2X) offerings and how data privacy and security is dealt with as the industry becomes increasingly interconnected.

 

Furthermore, developments in Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) are continuing apace and promise increased safety and more inclusive mobility solutions. This panel will look at some of the public and private projects seeking to provide connectivity along pan-European 5G corridors.

Session 2: Smart Mobility and Decarbonization for a Greener Transport Sector

The European Green Deal has set the key objective to deliver a 90% reduction in transport related greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to support the EU’s aim to become the first climate-neutral continent. This includes not only road transport but also rail, aviation and the maritime sectors. This session will explore the potential of digitalization, data sharing and innovative mobility platforms in achieving this goal. It will also look at how intelligent transport architectures, such as traffic management systems and automation can drive mobility and environmental efficiencies.

 

Investments in sustainable alternative fuels and clean technologies such as electric vehicles and associated charging/refueling infrastructures are essential in decarbonizing transport as set out in the European Green Deal. This panel will look at the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure for the transport sector and discuss how the revision of the TEN-T policy can move the industry forward.

15:15 - 16:30
Session 3: Road Safety – The Next Steps Towards Vision Zero

The European Commission remains committed to achieving ‘Vision Zero’, that is, to reduce road fatalities and serious injuries to almost zero by 2050. Each year, more than 25,000 people lose their lives while 135,000 are seriously injured on European roads.

 

According to the Road Safety Policy Framework 2021-2030, it has now set a new immediate target by halving these figures by 2030. This session will explore how priority measures such as the deployment of automated driving and Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) amongst others, will enhance road safety. Crucially, it will discuss the importance of standardization across systems and data sharing in ensuring improved transport safety.
