Human Explorer – European Mobility Week Day 1 – Opening event
Kl. 14:00 - 16:30
As part of European Mobility Week, BOZAR and Buskerud County are exploring solutions for sustainable automated transport.
On Tuesday the 17th of September, the concept of mobility is approached from a broader vantage point. Can we maintain our current level of mobility and at the same time support climate actions and build new sustainable cities? How can autonomous technology play a role in creating sustainable industries, stimulating economic growth and improving citizens’ quality of life?
The event brings together stakeholders from the fields of technology, industry, research, design and politics, from the Buskerud and Greater Oslo region in Norway, as well as Belgium and Europe.
