If you’re looking to gain an insight into current and future trends that are shaping UK and European transport and transport networks, then a forthcoming one-day conference will most certainly give you what you need.
The European Green Transport Conference (which takes place on May 5th at Enterprise Ireland’s offices at The Plaza, East Point, Dublin 3) will set the scene for the industry’s roadmap across the UK and EU over the next two decades. Features of the conference will highlight current and future opportunities and the challenges relating to all forms of vehicle and rail based technology (including, crucially, Intelligent Infrastructure trends).
The morning session will provide a platform for discussion around UK and European opportunities; focussed workshops in the afternoon will allow participants to engage in topical debate and have a Q&A session with a distinguished panel of experts. There will also be time for peer-to-peer networking between clients, academics, government and UK sector companies.
Some of the top transport companies and organisations confirmed as delegates include IBM, Bombardier Rail, Jaguar Land Rover, Alstom, Veolia, Irish Rail, the Rail Procurement Agency, National Roads Authority, and various industry-leading universities. High-profile industry speakers and OEMs will also be in attendance.
As can be gleaned from the above, this is a great opportunity to hear some of the world’s leading companies discuss automotive, rail and infrastructure trends, as well as gaining an insight into the challenges and opportunities around creating green sustainable transport initiatives. With the emergence of EU targets around CO2 emission reductions, all transport sectors will have to ensure compliance if they are to stay competitive, so this aspect of the conference is, clearly, very important.
Places for the conference are limited, and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Further details on the event (including conference overview, programme and speaker profiles) are available here. You can register for the event here.
