Additional Information

Like many other sectors, the automotive industry is facing a radical transformation. Electrification, autonomous driving, shared mobility, connectivity, Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Big Data, artificial intelligence, blockchain, Digital Twins…

Technological developments but also user behaviour and the demand for sustainable mobility are bringing the automotive industry to a tipping point.

The Covid-19 crisis has only accentuated these changes by questioning in depth our relationship to mobility.

It is in this context and within the framework of the European PAE project that the white paper “FUTURE MOVE”, produced by the University of Liège, was published. It gives an overview of the way in which the automotive industry can or must evolve under the combined pressure of the various elements that position it on a path of disruption.

This conference-meeting, which will bring together a panel of speakers with varied skills, will be an opportunity, based on the findings of the “FUTURE MOVE” white paper, to share the megatrends and innovations of the automotive industry, while pointing out the technological and societal challenges facing the sector.

The focus of the evening will be on autonomous driving and mobility as a service and their multiple implications.
