The Future of Mobility and Urban Living

The future of mobility and urban living is a major issue that companies need to focus on today to plan tomorrow. Indeed, in 2050 almost 6 billion people will live in an urban area. The growth of the population will multiply the number of transportation modes and housing in the cities. To fulfill the increasing need for transportation mode and housing the offer has to change. Besides, the environmental crisis makes necessary to use cleaner alternative to fossil energies and pollutant activities within the cities.

Will the wind of change blow through the EIC?
