Meet Carlo van de Weijer

Future of Mobility and "Stupid" Cities: Where are the self-driving cars?

Digitization has entered the mobility arena. The car has evolved from a mechanical device into a “data producing embedded software platform”, and the internet is quickly linking the supply and demand to effectively fulfil our transport needs. And just like every industry that is confronted with digitization, the changes come faster than most traditional players can prepare for. Yet, with all the unpredictability that comes along with disruption there are some fixed rules that one can prepare for. This makes mobility a real example of an industry in the midst of disruption.

Carlo van de Weijer will highlight the most important future trends within mobility, from biking to self-driving vehicles, electrification and the impact on cities and society, with a clear focus on lessons to be learned from that for any other industry.

Future of Energy: the Pathway to Abundance

Energy is the fundamental force that drives all processes and phenomena in the universe. It is the essence that powers civilization, sustains life, and underpins every aspect of existence. As we navigate the challenges of climate change in a world where enrgy demand will sharply rise in the decades to come, the conversation around energy has never been more critical. In this session, we will explore the exciting prospects and technology breakthroughs that could redefine how we harness, distribute, and utilize energy in the coming years. From advancements in renewable energy technologies to distribute, store and apply energy.
