We are delighted to welcome CCAM Association and EGVIAfor2Zero as strategic partners for The International Mobility Summit 2022.
On Wednesday 12th October at the summit, 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‘.
EU partnerships: technology meeting the users to support urban transitions
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 upmost importance.
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 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.
About CCAM Association: The Connected, Cooperative and Automated Mobility (CCAM) Partnership brings the European Commission and private and public partners together to accelerate the implementation of innovative CCAM technologies and services in Europe. It aims to exploit the full systemic benefits of new mobility solutions enabled by CCAM: increased safety, reduced environmental impacts, and inclusiveness. The Partnership will develop and implement a shared, coherent, and long-term R&I agenda towards “European leadership in safe and sustainable road transport through automation“.
About EGVIAfor2Zero: The Towards zero emission road transport (2Zero) is a co-programmed Partnership funded under the Horizon Europe programme and aiming at accelerating the transition towards zero tailpipe emission road mobility across Europe. It builds upon the successes of the European Green Cars Initiative (EGCI: 2009-2013) and the European Green Vehicles Initiative (EGVI: 2014-2020). The 2Zero partnership will implement an integrated system approach covering Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) by investigating new vehicles technologies and covering the integration of the zero tailpipe emission vehicles in their eco-system contributing to boost the EU competitiveness and technological leadership. By identifying the research needs contributing to achieve the targets set in European transport, energy and environmental policies, the 2Zero partnership helps to draft the path towards a climate-neutral European road transport system, in line with the European Green Deal.
