Smart Mobility & Smart Logistics matchmaking event

Welcome to

Smart Mobility and Smart Logistics

Matchmaking event for Dutch and Belgian companies looking to collaborate in research and development projects.
New ICT applications for mobility of people and goods.

On October 18th 2018 the Enterprise Europe Network and the public funding agencies from Belgium and the Netherlands will bring together entrepreneurs and researchers from both countries interested in the topic of smart mobility and smart logistics. Entrepreneurs that have an interest in new applications of ICT, such as big data, 5G or artificial Intelligence, for the mobility of people or goods are encouraged to attend the event and meet potential collaborators.

Belgium and the Netherlands are densely populated countries and large parts of both countries can be considered as urban areas. This provides both challenges and opportunities. The main challenges are accessibility, air quality and traffic safety. The opportunities include new ways of providing services, for instance in city logistics or mobility as a service. The application of ICT plays a central role in developing new services and products. Big data, 5G and artificial intelligence are examples of technologies that offer new possibilities for smart mobility and smart logistics. These can lead to breakthroughs in areas such as connected and automated driving, truck platooning and mobility as a service, urban logistics and smart charging.


Matchmaking


On October 18th, we invite smart logistics and smart mobility stakeholders who have an interest in developing new services and products to engage with one another in a matchmaking event. This event will be a great opportunity to receive information on funding opportunities for cross border research projects in Eurostars and Horizon2020.

This is a unique opportunity to generate new business contacts and contracts.

Meetings will take place in a dedicated area and will be organised in advance through this website.

Visit the HOW IT WORKS page to learn how to participate.


Keynote speech


“2030. Smart Mobility in Smart Cities. Challenges and examples in innovative ecosystems” - Dr. ir. Bart Wolput -

Smart mobility covers more than only technology. A systemic approach is essential : change is made possible within a strong context of collaboration between all stakeholders ; with a specific focus on the role of citizens.

A mental shift, engagement via co-creation and added value for the end user need to be at the center in order for the technology to be successful. Bart will show how the predicted trends such as Mobility-as-a-Service, self-driving cars, C-ITS and shifting from ownership to usage can become reality.
