09: Green Tech: Visions and Business of eco-mobility

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
in deutscher Sprache

Consistent research and development will transform “green” visions into innovative business models. Mobility is of special importance in the field of green tech research. The further development of mobility to eco-mobility – a viable, low-emission and affordable way of mobility in connection with regenerative sources of energy – will therefore be an essential challenge for society. Representatives of industry, research and the public authorities will discuss eco-mobility with regard to technology, resources and infrastructure, as well as economic and legal aspects.
