Smart Societies in Focus at the Next Volvo Group Innovation Summit

 

Groundbreaking innovations will be presented at the Volvo Group’s next Innovation Summit in Berlin on September 12. The summit will have smart societies in focus with experts predicting the infrastructure and transport scenarios of the future. Speakers at the event include Andreas Scheuer, the German Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.

The Innovation Summit is designed to further the debate and discuss new concepts of mobility and the impact they have on society and environment. The event in Berlin in September is the fourth in a series of similar summits being held starting last year in London, Brussels and Beijing, all hosted by the Volvo Group.

“By bringing a diverse group of regional stakeholders together, for the Innovation Summit, we want to spark a dialogue on how to overcome transport challenges and ensure that society can reap benefits from innovations. By focusing on what we see as three key technology areas – automation, electromobility and connectivity we aim to contribute to improved traffic safety and transport efficiency as well as environmental sustainability, which will have greatly positive impacts for societies,” says Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO at Volvo Group.

The summit will also include exciting full scale live demonstrations of brand new innovative transport solutions from Volvo Group in the fields of autonomous driving and electric mobility.

Speakers at the event include politicians, officials and experts from the government, academia and associations.
