We also had the famous urbanist Prof. Carlos Moreno from Sorbonne University participating in person (15 minute city concept) as well as the co-president of the Club of Rome Sandrine Dixson-Decleve who is an influential voice in sustainability related regulation development.

Alexander Kraus, CTO of the Mobility Division of TUEV Sued and Chairman of IAMTS provided a keynote.

The participants of the future mobility co-creation session had consensus on:

  • Mobility is a right.

  • Mobility needs to be designed with all generations and needs along the Human lifecycle in mind.

  • Mobility needs to be delivered in suitable public private partnerships.

  • Progress in sustainability aspects to be measured across the transportation sector through suitable and standardized impact assessment methods.

  • The correlation of business model change and technology change needs to be validated in consortium-based prototype projects including the impact contribution potential across the entire sector.

  • Cities are suitable ecosystems to validate new mobility methods and lifecycle Approaches.

  • Mobility needs to be considered in its entirety (automotive, rail, aerospace, maritime) and regulations/standard frameworks need to be simplified and Defragmented.
