Programme details

We will start of the first session with a deep dive into some of the new technologies and innovation trends that are currently driving the transport sector. From autonomous driving to innovation in multi-modal transportation, micro-mobility and electrification of trucks. What’s new and promising technology wise?
But we will also try to assess what are the key factors for success of these new forms of technology and mobility innovations. How does politics and the regulatory regime impact success stories in the transport sector? What is necessary to persuade the end consumer and are customers' needs still the same or are they diversifying?
Finally, we want to venture a look into the future and assess the megatrends and innovations. We want to consider how certain innovations will change our everyday lives, our mobility habits and thus eventually the automotive industry. What are the future challenges for corporate leaders, and what should forward-thinking fund managers invest in?

The internal combustion engine has been the dominant drive system in Europe over the last century and has helped to shape and reconfigure the urban landscape. The coming decades will see a dramatic shift in transportation in the face of competing forms of mobility and increasingly stringent environmental regulations. Massive infrastructure investment will be necessary to take account of the needs of these alternative forms of mobility and to establish integrated transport networks of people and goods. This will have a dramatic impact both on urban planning and on the regulatory framework in which these services are provided. The aim of this session is to look at:

  • the longer-term opportunities for transforming the urban landscape from the launch of the self-driving car to the integration of micro-mobility as a significant contributor to transport ecosystems
  • Some of the social and economic challenges
  • Politics of mobility

Programme details

This session will shed light on the digital features modern connected vehicles offer and the framework regarding data collection, access and use under data protection and privacy laws. We will be looking at the essential questions of the ownership and protection of relevant data (and type of data) from the perspective of the various stakeholders such a manufacturers, service providers and users. This includes identifying where, when and how data is collected and who can use and access, and for what commercial goals. The EU has provided a draft for a EU Data Act regarding the use of and access to data (e.g. telemetric data) and this session will also discuss how it is expected to affect the approach in the market. Furthermore, we will discuss the ways individuals consent to or reject the collection of data relating to the vehicle, the operator (and other passenger) and when data once collected is to be deleted (privacy by design/default).

Programme details

The session will take the form of a workshop with moderators facilitating round table discussions on some of the legal hot topics in the mobility services industry, including current legislative development, data ownership, opportunities and challenges for autonomous vehicles and more. 

  • The Road to Autonomous Vehicles – discussing the regulatory framework for autonomous vehicles in Europe including recent legislative developments on the EU and national level.
  • Opportunities and challenges with data from autonomous vehicles - contemplating questions about who is the owner and who has right to access the different sorts for data generated from the connected vehicle and whether the current regulatory framework is sufficient for what is coming. The session will further elaborate about future aspects we need to be aware of (the known unknowns) with regard to data from connected vehicles.
  • Liability in situations concerning autonomous vehicles – discussing the upcoming liability shift, i.e., from driver/holder liability for human driving errors to the liability of OEMs/suppliers for AI/machine driving errors.

A look at some of the critical challenges for the in-house legal team working in new mobility services.
The automotive and mobility service industries are facing disruptive changes arising from new technologies and services. Technological and sustainability challenges affect all operators in every sector, from manufacturers and traditional ancillary service providers to new providers of mobility and connectivity services. The way in which main market players look and operate is changing, and these changes also influence the manifold legal implications to consider in supporting the business. In this scenario, the role of in-house legal teams in “connecting the dots” amongst different legislative frameworks in many different areas and jurisdictions is becoming more and more strategic for the business success and often requires innovative approaches and a forward-looking mindset. The session will discuss several of these challenges and whether, in this disruptive landscape, some of the 'dots' are still missing or unsuitable
