COVID-19 and its aftermath are bringing both threats and opportunities to urban mobility - from a massive return to the private car as a safety bubble to a boost for active travel and the redesign of cities for people. How can innovation contribute to tackling both old and new mobility challenges as well as enabling cities to capitalise on this unique opportunity to have a drastic shift towards a more sustainable urban mobility ecosystem?

This webinar will look at how disruptive urban transport solutions are emerging out of the crisis and will reflect on their possible contribution to making cities’ mobility systems bounce back from COVID-19 in a resilient and sustainable way.

Which innovations, from shared mobility and MaaS to e-commerce, automation, or air mobility, will be accelerated by the coronavirus and which ones may be suffering from it? Which other solutions are needed to move forward in the right direction? This and more will be discussed with a distinguished panel:

  • Krista Huhtala-Jenks, Head of Ecosystem & Sustainability, MaaS Global
  • Vassilis Agouridas, Head of EU Public Co-Creation & Regulatory Ecosystem Outreach, AIRBUS Urban Mobility
  • Kristian Yde Agerbo, Head of Public Policy and Market Development, VOI Technology
  • Jean-Luc di Paola Galloni, Corporate Vice-President Sustainability and External Affairs, Valeo Group (TBC)
  • Philippe Crist, Advisor Innovation & Foresight, International Transport Forum at the OECD
  • Malin Broqvist Andersson, Head of Development & International Affairs, Urban Transport Administration, City of Gothenburg

The panel will be moderated by Karen Vancluysen, POLIS Secretary General.
