Tomorrow.Mobility charts a path to a better future with green and smart transportation

Is a shared mobility data space the ultimate enabler of a revolution in global transportation? How can zero-emission vehicles spearhead the fight against climate change? Will public autonomous mobility lead us to the future? These are some of the questions that over 100 international experts will address in Barcelona from November 7 to 9 at Tomorrow.Mobility World Congress (TMWC), an event jointly organized by Fira de Barcelona and EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union.

The conference program is structured around 8 themes – Data Spaces, Inclusivity, Affordability & Fairness; Connected, Cooperative & Automated Mobility; Sustainable Urban Logistics; Multimodality; Urban Air Mobility; Energy Transition; and Active Mobility – and will focus on some of the key topics, including strategies to support public transport as a crucial element to make cities more liveable and meet ambitious emission reduction targets, the creation of a shared mobility data space to deploy extensive multimodal travel, and overcoming the challenges to fully implement autonomous vehicles.

Among the more than 100 speakers are Timothy Papandreou, former Chief Innovation Officer at San Francisco MTA and advisor for X (Alphabet’s Moonshot Factory); Karima Delli, Chair of the Committee on Transport and Tourism at the European Parliament; Seleta Reynolds, Chief Innovation Officer at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority; Jacob Bangsgaard, Secretary General for Automobile Mobility and Tourism at the FIA; and Jill Warren, CEO of the European Cyclists’ Federation.

Maria Tsavachidis, President of Tomorrow.Mobility World Congress and CEO of EIT Urban Mobility, said: “As we prepare for the event, we are constantly reminded of the urgency to create more sustainable urban mobility solutions. The mobility sector is a strategic one as it acts as a connector to all economic activities. As cities strive towards climate neutrality, we can see that technological innovations alone will not be enough to reach this goal, but working in collaboration across sectors and geographies will be key to our mutual success. This third edition of Tomorrow.Mobility will act as an opportunity to share knowledge and solutions, leading us to a smarter, cleaner, and more interconnected future of mobility.

Tomorrow.Mobility World Congress will also feature an exhibition space where 130 companies including BSM, Deloitte, KIA, Moventis, PTV Group, PWC, Racc, Renfe, and Sener will showcase their latest products. In addition, many institutions such as Alamys, AMB, FGC, TMB, CARNET, ETRA, and International Road Federation, Polis, will also take part in TMWC.
