More specifically, IRF Deputy Director General, Gonzalo Alcaraz will be moderating the session “International Cooperation as a Tool for Progress on the Worldwide Deployment of Autonomous Mobility” together ERTICO (Belgium) Senior Manager, Nikolaos Tsampieris.

About the Session
One of the key fundamental aspects when it comes to the development of autonomous mobility is the cooperation and collaboration of all stakeholders involved. Starting from the vehicles, moving to the users, and finally to the environment that is around them. Despite the efforts of several organizations in putting forward the topics that would allow the safe and efficient deployment of autonomous mobility, there are still gaps that cannot be properly addressed and therefore make overall progress slower.
That’s where international cooperation can play a role and help move the transition of our sector towards autonomous mobility faster. Different situations and scenarios will bring inevitably new knowledge and lessons learned that can be leveraged by the whole community. We just need to put in place the mechanism that allows these exchanges of knowledge and experience to be available for everyone. This session will work on these latter aspects of cooperation. It will bring key organizations and stakeholders from different parts of the world already working on topics about autonomous mobility, and who are engaged in building liaisons, as well as twinning activities to promote and develop cooperation; a key and very important topic for the transport sector.
