Making Waves: Pushing the Boat out on Waterborne Mobility

My list

Historically for many cities, their growth and economic exchanges were built on and around inland and coastal waterways. These same waterways could now be key to solving contemporary mobility challenges. However, operational costs, lack of infrastructure, and environmental concerns remain barriers to the development of this alternative to road and rail. This session will explore what can be done to unlock the full potential of waterborne transport.

The session will be divided into two blocks:

Solution talks, from 16:45 to 17:15
Bjorn Utgard (Hyke)
Erik Dyrkonen (Zeabuz)

Thematic roundtable, from 17:15 to 18:00
Minna Torppa (Forum Virium Helsinki)
Sven Verstrepen (Ghent University)
Najmeh Masoudi (Future Mobility Europe)
Johan de Haas (Damen Shipyard)
