Tomorrow.Mobility World Congress: The ultimate global event on sustainable and intelligent urban mobility (Graphic: EIT Urban Mobility)

EIT Urban Mobility is the largest European initiative for the transformation of urban mobility, created by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union. This European initiative benefits of the strategic partnership with Fira de Barcelona by increasing the impact of its European partnership and jointly reaching to a wider audience globally in the mobility scene. Tomorrow.Mobility represents EIT Urban Mobility’s flagship event 2021, showcasing its most promising innovation projects, results, demonstrations, and supported start-ups.

TMWC will bring insights from the global mobility ecosystem gathered under one roof. Being aware of the strong ties that mobility has with other sectors, the event is co-located with Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC). More than 350 speakers will be joining alongside hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees. Twelve inspiring congress sessions featuring high-level speakers from both the public and private sector will take place under the umbrella of Tomorrow.Mobility. Speakers include Maria Tsavachidis, CEO of EIT Urban Mobility & President of the Board of Tomorrow.Mobility; Matthew Baldwin, Deputy Director-General for DG MOVE, European Commission; Mark Major, Senior Advisor to the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT); Carlos Moreno, Scientific director of the Chair Entrepreneurship Territory Innovation, University Panthéon Sorbonne – IAE Paris; and Anna Lisa Boni, Secretary General at Eurocities.

Dr. Maria Tsavachidis, CEO of EIT Urban Mobility & President of the Advisory Board of TMWC stated that “our collaboration with Fira de Barcelona will help expand the network of innovation for urban mobility in Europe and beyond. Our goal is to foster innovation and transformation towards sustainable mobility, to decarbonise mobility, improve people’s quality of life, and make Europe’s economy more competitive. Bringing together the world´s leaders and frontrunners in sustainable mobility under the umbrella of Tomorrow.Mobility is an important steppingstone towards this goal. It will inspire and create new opportunities for our partners, cities, startups, and their innovations”.

Numerous start-ups supported by EIT Urban Mobility will be showcasing their high-tech solutions at their booths and demo areas, such as: Bia Power (Autonomous Vehicles/Spain), BlockCity (Mobility Services/Hungary), Dashfactory Gmbh (Sensors & Training Data/Germany), Delivers.ai (Last Mile Delivery/Turkey), Vianova (Sensors Data/France), and SmartMonkey (Green Logistics/Spain).

Several EIT Urban Mobility supported innovation projects will be featured at the Central Agora during two different sessions. One session focusing on managing shared public space, and another on how to put Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions into practice. Among the EIT Urban Mobility supported projects presented are, FURNISH, which promotes the redesign of public spaces to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Another notable project is HALLO, which creates shared urban consolidation and distribution centres through a series of pilots in Barcelona and Stockholm.

Tomorrow.Mobility, held with the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC), a leading tradeshow & congress on smart cities, has the initial support of over a hundred global companies and trusted institutions amongst which feature the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, Microsoft, Mastercard, ADP (Airports of Paris), the International Association of Ports and Harbours, the Port of Barcelona, Moventia, the RACC and Social Car. The event seeks to tackle the future challenges facing mobility, an industry that will be one of the main drivers of future growth, with a market volume of 60,000 million euros in 2027.

The new event, which will include a congress and exhibition area, will hold a first pilot edition in November and again in 2022. It will address current mobility challenge areas such as micromobility (electric scooters, bicycles), active mobility and the public realm, public transport, mobility providers (car sharing, air taxis), the car industry (electric, connected, and autonomous cars), last mile logistics (e-commerce deliveries, delivery drones), smart infrastructures (fleet management, geolocation, and payment systems), the energy transition towards carbon neutrality and digitisation.

The objective of Tomorrow.Mobility is to go beyond being just an event. The launch of the new show will be accompanied by the creation of a digital content platform with a global reach operating 365 days a year, turning it into the go-to global stage for urban, sustainable, and smart mobility. This platform will allow access to both live events and à la carte contents divided into themes with the aim of facilitating knowledge transfer, training & network.

NielsenIQ Rises to the Omnichannel Measurement Challenge8.12.2021 15:01:00 EET | Press release

The shopper journey continually evolves as consumers have more control over what they do, see, and hear. That means the tools used to measure and analyze sales, market share and consumer behavior must also change. In an environment that continues to experience seismic shifts, measuring when, where and how consumers are buying is imperative. This allows fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) manufacturers and retailers to anticipate trends and react faster to consumers’ needs and expectations. Although the fastest growing channel in Western Europe and North America is online, e-commerce measurement tools are largely fragmented. Users must combine data from multiple sources to get a full picture of the market. NielsenIQ is transforming the FMCG and retail industry with its innovative solutions and precise insights, which offer an integrated, accurate, complete, and more granular view of the offline and online marketplace—making it easier to analyze trends across channels. Our latest acquisiti

Proposed “European AI Act” and “Machinery Product Regulation” Will Hamper Innovation, Stifle Small Businesses and Disrupt Manufacturing, Global Robotics Leaders Warn8.12.2021 15:00:00 EET | Press release

The European Commission’s proposed AI Act and updated regulations on machinery products will cause severe damage to European small businesses, robotics companies and innovation, according to four of the most influential voices in robotics and automation. Together, the International Federation of Robotics, the VDMA Robotics + Automation Association, EUnited Robotics and REInvest Robotics urgently call on European policymakers to revisit and amend the proposals. While all four organizations embrace the European Commission’s vision to maintain safety, protect human rights and create a harmonized framework for artificial intelligence and robotics, the collective sees the following primary issues with the proposed regulations as currently drafted: The mandatory third-party certification requirements will slow tech innovation across Europe. The restrictions will hinder artificial intelligence adoption and put European companies, especially SMEs and startups, at a competitive disadvantage glo
