Breakfast event: Connected and Automated Driving: Is Europe going in the right direction?

  • Renaissance Brussels Hotel 19 Rue du Parnasse Bruxelles, Bruxelles, 1050 Belgium (map)

On 17 May 2018, the European Commission came forward with a strategy on connected and automated mobility as part of the third and final “’Europe on the Move” legislative package. This event will allow for policy makers and stakeholders to give their initial reactions to the proposed strategy whilst also allowing for debate and discussion on the wider measures being rolled out across Europe. The meeting aims to assess how Europe is performing on connected and automated mobility and to debate whether the EU and Member States are acting decisively enough from an industry, consumer and societal perspective. The event also follows on from the Resolution adopted by the European Parliament in March this year on a European strategy on Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems.
