For many cities and municipalities, mobility represents a whimsical, confusing and unpredictable challenge. Because of the many disruptions that arrive at a racing rate it’s almost impossible to see the wood for the trees. Where can we situate the problems? Which solutions exist? How can we already adapt to future innovations? To get an answer to the various questions, cities challenge the mobility sector.

On November 30, 2017, Smart Mobility, a knowledge center of Antwerp Management School, organizes an informative and interactive session in which cities are brought into contact with providers of mobility solutions and sector organizations.

During table discussions the cities submit their specific problems. This gives the industry a clearer view on the real needs of urban environments and helps them to play into the cities’ cards.

Available, affordable and relevant data is the first step in making the right decision. Cities and municipalities don’t always have the means to capture these data.
