2Zero and CCAM @ The 7th International Mobility Summit
Cities all around Europe have defined ambitious objectives in terms of sustainability, inclusiveness and safety; efforts to achieve these objectives are supported by the European Union via the recently launched “Cities mission”, in which the mobility pillar will be of utmost importance.
On Wednesday 12th October at the International Mobility Summit 2022, Wiebke Pankauke, Deputy Head of Unit for Future Urban and Mobility Systems at the European Commission, Jean-Luc di Paola-Galloni, Group Corporate Vice-President Sustainable Development and External Affairs at Valeo and Vice-Chairman at EGVIAfor2Zero, and Armin Gräter, Director of Digitalisation and Automated Driving at BMW Group and Chair at CCAM Association, will take part in a panel discussion entitled ‘EU partnerships: technology meeting the users to support urban transitions‘.
By mobilising public and private resources, EU partnerships 2Zero (Towards zero emission road transport) and CCAM (Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility) can speed up the development of innovative technologies and help cities accelerate their transition towards a more desirable future.
During the panel discussion, partnerships and public authorities representatives will share their views on how the two partnerships support the urban transition by contributing to decarbonization, air quality improvement, more efficient traffic and parking management and use of urban spaces, as well as defining the infrastructure requirements that should be met to ensure a successful deployment of innovations.
