We are glad to open registrations and share a draft agenda of the workshop "Transport research & innovation to help shape the urban mobility of tomorrow", taking place on Friday 18 October in Paris. 
How can innovation help to solve cities' and regions' mobility challenges?

Interactive city-industry session
An interactive session with cities and new mobility service operators will explore the solutions that are likely to shape the city of tomorrow, with interventions from Lime, Uber, Airbus and Valeo and more. 
Identifying building blocks and gaps in transport R&I
Break-out sessions will aim to identify building blocks and gaps in transport research and innovation: how to move from research to deployment? How to scale up innovative solutions? What technical, policy, socio-economic research & innovation is required to help shape the urban mobility ecosystem of tomorrow?
