The European Commission, together with the ARCADE project, is pleased to announce the third European Conference on Connected and Automated Driving, which will be held virtually from 20 to 22 April 2021.
It is now time to make Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) a reality together. The European Commission intends to establish a new European Partnership on Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility under Horizon Europe. The partnership aims to align better public and private efforts through a common and long-term R&I agenda. It will accelerate the implementation of smart, innovative and sustainable mobility solutions for all.
EUCAD 2021 will be a high-level, evidence-based conference where policy challenges meet innovative solutions to deliver on societal benefits. This unique event in Europe will bring together political leaders from the European Commission and Member States with high-level representatives of industry, knowledge institutes and road authorities to exchange knowledge and experience on the most recent technological developments and policies in the area of CCAM.
The conference consists of a series of plenary sessions complemented by several thematic breakout discussions as well as a virtual exhibition available throughout the event. The first two days of the programme are primarily policy-oriented while the third day is fully dedicated to break-out sessions discussing specific R&I challenges. All break-out sessions feature interactive panel discussions on specific R&I questions, combined with active audience participation. The virtual exhibition features R&I projects active in the field of automated mobility, including their presentation, documentation and contact information. The exhibition could also feature virtual demonstrations by some large-scale pilot projects.
