New Mobility Means Business:A Panel on Emerging Markets in Sustainable Urban Transportation
Wednesday June 11, 2008, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Welcome: Mary Sue Coleman, President of the University of Michigan
William Clay Ford Junior,, Executive Chairman, Ford Motor Company
Panelists are asked the question: How does New Mobility / sustainable transportation mean business for you, and how do you envision the future of the New Mobility industry globally?
The good news is that innovation is flourishing around the world. It is evolving beyond the quest for silver bullet solutions and technical fixes towards more multi-faceted, connected, customized, practical, affordable, and systems-based solutions, opening up entirely new solution spaces and related business and employment opportunities.
“New Mobility Means Business” will take a journey into the near and not so near future, profiling how new services, products, transport modes, energy sources, technologies, and designs are converging to provide urban transportation portfolios that work for people, the planet, and the economy.
The panel is part of a two-day workshop hosted by SMART / CARSS at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. It will bring together scholars, business leaders, entrepreneurs, transportation professionals, and public officials from around the world to share knowledge and experience, to support collaborative research, and to build a business and innovation network with the aim of accelerating sustainable urban transportation implementation in cities around the world.
