Tomorrow Mobility shines light on the new driving forces for more liveable and sustainable cities. Over 400 speakers, 20.776 attendants onsite and 21,000 online from 134 countries gathered together last week in Barcelona (and online) to discuss about the latest trends in urban mobility.
Over 80 speakers such as Kelly Larson, director of the Road Safety Programme at Bloomberg Philanthropies; Karen Vancluysen, secretary general of POLIS; Marco te Brömmelstroet, professor of Future of Urban Mobility at the University of Amsterdam; Mikael Colville-Andersen, Urban Design Expert and Thomas Geier, head of research and policy at the European Metropolitan Transport Authorities, Maria Tsavachidis, CEO of EIT Urban Mobility, participated in the more than 20 congress and innovation zone sessions of Tomorrow.Mobility.
Start-ups from our portfolio, innovation projects developed in close collaboration with our partners and cities gathered together to fine tune in looking the best solutions for urban mobility. Our booth also attracted a lot of visitors eager to learn more about urban mobility and the solutions we are bringing to the market. City leaders also gathered together in a side event to share best practices and create synergies to make cities more liveable all across Europe and beyond
At this year’s edition, two studies produced by EIT Urban Mobility were unveiled. The first of the two focuses on the 15-minute city approach, an urban planning trend that aims at reorganising neighbourhoods in such a way that all citizens have every basic service accessible within 15 minutes at the most. The second study analyses the development of urban air mobility, a disruptive air transport system for both passengers and last-mile logistics in urban environments. You can check the two studies below.
Our partners also gathered together at the conference, and we had the opportunity to interview some of them live during these 3 intense days:
Interview with Anaïs Enrico, from Karos Mobility
Interview with Elias Pajares, from Plan4Better
Interview with Hendrik Fischer, from Social Tech Projects
Interview with Yoann Le Petit, from EIT Urban Mobility
In addition to the conference sessions, for those not able to attend the event on-site, TMWC22 also offered a 6-hour live programme that everyone all over the world could follow online (live from 10 am to 4 pm, and broadcasted from 4 pm to 10 pm) no matter the part of the world they are in. The recordings of the sessions and the live programme will be available soon here.
