ALICE at EU Mobility & Transport Event

Thursday, March 7th, 2024

Two colleagues from the European Technology Platform ALICE, Andrea Annunziata and Laura Mata Garcia, took part in the conference “Moving forward together: what’s next for EU mobility & transport?” held in Brussels on 21 February 2024. This high-level event brought together industry leaders, policymakers, and academics to discuss the future of European transport and logistics, focusing on key challenges and opportunities for a more sustainable and resilient sector. The conference was a melting pot of ideas aimed at shaping the next European Commission’s priorities in the field of transport and mobility.

  • Completing the Trans-European Transport Network: The emphasis on mobilising resources to complete this core network by 2030 underlines the EU’s commitment to a robust infrastructure backbone, essential for seamless logistics and freight transport.
  • Green Transition and Competitiveness: Discussions on making the transport sector more competitive while managing the green transition highlight the balancing act between sustainability and economic viability.
  • System Integration and Resilience: The need for different transport modes and actors to function as a single system, coupled with a focus on infrastructure resilience, points towards a future where logistics operations are more interconnected and adaptable to challenges, such as climate change and geopolitical tensions.
  • Digitalisation and Automation: The potential and risks of AI and digital technologies in transport, from planning maintenance to enabling Mobility as a Service (MaaS).
  • Skills and Workforce Development: The future of logistics also lies in empowering the workforce to adapt to new technologies and processes.
