Over the next three and a half years, the MOBiNET project will develop the first Europe-wide ITS platform to connect business stakeholders such as transport data suppliers, fleet operators, network managers and service providers. This will open an ‘Internet of Mobility’ offering a wide range of enriched and innovative mobility applications for business users, commuters and travellers, and also, for service providers, a gateway to millions of potential customers.
Existing connected vehicle services are typically proprietary and few offer truly Europe-wide coverage or interoperability. So the real challenge is to simplify, (i) for end users, the discovery and experience of these services, and (ii) for providers, the access to a wider customer base. This interactive workshop brings together these key groups, giving you the perfect opportunity to shape MOBiNET as a platform, concept and solution that will truly transform your business.

The goal of this open workshop is to present results achieved by the FP7 project CRM_InnoNet on European industrial dependence on critical raw materials and to open a discussion for identification of next generation technologies which could act as substitutes. The focus is on three strategic sectors: Energy, Transport (Aerospace and Automotive) and ICT. Substituting or replacing critical raw materials for a less scarce resource, or a new technology or service, is one approach to reducing Europe´s dependence on imports, as well as creating opportunities for innovation.
The workshop will bring together stakeholders representing industries using critical raw materials, engineers involved in product development and material supply, recycling companies, scientists and decision makers. Stakeholders will discuss critical raw materials in the European value chain, give input into criteria for the choice of critical applications for which substitution is an appropriate solution and suggest potential substitution technologies.

The OPTIMISM Event is a place to present research results, practical experiences, real-world problems and to communicate and discuss between/beyond disciplines. It has the vision to raise awareness and, in parallel, to actively contribute to the shaping of a consensus among various stakeholders.
This leads to the most effective recommendations on strategies, technologies and methodologies for the integration and optimisation of the transport system for supporting the aim of sustainable mobility. The OPTIMISM Event highlights the scientifically documented insight of the transport system and people travel choices via the study of social behaviour and mobility patterns. It presents the OPTIMISM Consortium’s findings and allows stakeholders to discuss on developing strategies, technologies and methodologies for integrating and optimising transport systems for passengers, -both in urban and metropolitan transport and at regional and long-distance mobility, while determining the optimum balance of “trade-offs”.
