Why the Connected Mobility Summit, and why now?

Making the future of mobility work
A well-functioning mobility system is essential for the economic health of the EU and the prosperity of its businesses and citizens. Being able to move goods and people across the EU is crucial for the success of the internal market. The challenges for EU mobility policy involve linking up different forms of transport ranging from air to rail, road and waterways. At the same time, the EU needs to make progress in decarbonizing transport so that it makes its contribution to tackling climate change while improving the quality of life in cities.
In this transition year, POLITICO brings its third annual Connected Mobility Summit to Amsterdam, the mobility lab of Europe. From self-driving buses to autonomous boats, the city is very enthusiastic about mobility technology.

Join us on October 8 in the Dutch capital and meet policymakers, regulators, disruptors and experts, cross-cutting sectors including mobility, energy and technology for a day of dynamic and interactive programming with interview, panel discussions and breakout sessions. Our POLITICO’s journalists will address the following questions:

  • How do mobility, connectivity and sustainability interact with one another?
  • Does Europe have the right mobility framework in place to meet the Paris goals?
  • Is the European industry able to compete in energy technology with the U.S. and China?
  • How can manufacturers and recyclers deal with worn out batteries?
  • How can consumers afford the costs of the mobility of tomorrow?
  • What needs to be done to integrate bicycles, urban transport, railways, airports and cars?
  • Electrifying mobility creates e-waste issues; how can manufacturers and recyclers deal with worn out batteries?
