EUCAD2019: Registrations are now open
The European Commission, with the support of the EC-funded project ARCADE , is pleased to announce its Second European Conference on connected and automated driving: ‘Connected Automated Driving: Europe takes the lead’.
The deployment of Connected and Automated Driving (CAD) can contribute significantly to our policy goals of bringing down the number of road fatalities, reducing harmful emissions from transport and reducing congestion. At the same time, automated mobility has the potential to strengthen the competitiveness of European industry, create new jobs and boost economic growth.
It is the ambition of the European Commission to make Europe a world leader in the deployment of connected and automated mobility. Technological progress is very fast and the market for connected and automated vehicles is expected to grow exponentially.
The conference will be held at the EU Commission’s Charlemagne Building on 2 – 3 April 2019 with a social networking event taking place in Autoworld Museum in the evening of the 2nd.
Under the theme ‘Connected Automated Driving: Europe takes the lead’, the conference brings together political leaders from the European Commission and Member States with high-level representatives of industry and road authorities to discuss all the major challenges related to automated mobility.
Here is a preview of what you can expect at this year’s conference:
- Panel discussions including high-level speakers
- Strategic sessions discussing, among others, benefits, international cooperation and security of CAD
- Breakout sessions designed to deepen certain thematic areas
- A social networking event in Autoworld providing an opportunity to connect with different stakeholders and to visit the museum
- Exhibitions and live demonstrations
With the EUCAD 2019 conference, which comes almost one year after the publication of the Communication on automated mobility and two years after EUCAD 2017, the European Commission intends to take stock of the implementation of the different actions of the European agenda.
EUCAD 2019 is the only conference in Europe that brings together political leaders from the European Commission and Member States with high-level representatives of industry and road authorities to discuss all the major challenges related to automated mobility.
Taking place just one month before European elections, EUCAD 2019 will also convey a strong message to citizens: their acceptance is key to the success of CAD. Engaging different segments of society in the discussion helps to establish a sense of inclusiveness and shared ownership and will encourage this acceptance.
