Stations, energy, and inclusion - subjects to be debated at inOut
The station of the future, energy for new mobilities, and inclusive mobility; the inOut programme is set to examine the key present and future challenges of mobility. Here we provide an overview of new speakers and an outline of the subjects to be debated during the professional part of inOut.
A few weeks ago, in earlier articles we announced inOut's first speakers and took a look at open innovation, data in all its states, autonomous mobility and the world of new mobilities. Now discover some of the other mobility topics to be covered during inOut.
Draw me the station of the future
More and more living and service areas, just like intermodal hubs and many stations (such as Rennes, and Gare du Nord) are undergoing spectacular changes. Patrick Ropert, CEO SNCF Gares & Connexions and author of the book 'City Booster - The station at the dawn of a revolution', will give us his vision of the station of the future and its strategic role in the transport of the future.
Mobilities fill up with (new) energies
New mobilities go hand in hand with new energy needs. Whether electric or hydrogen, they are certainly set to revolutionise the type of energy and equipment used in transport. To discuss this, digital and energy stakeholders will be meeting Gérard Le Bihan, director of the Images & Réseaux competitive cluster and president of the ‘Smart Energy French Clusters' alliance. For his part, Ovarith Troeung, director of Engie's Green Mobility, will be talking about clean technologies and solutions to urban congestion.
Mobility will be inclusive (or it won't ‘be’ at all)
New technologies promise greater mobility for all types of users, but is this really the case? Will they introduce greater equality or, on the contrary, widen the gap between users who are 'hyper-mobile' and those who are vulnerable or mobility-impaired? In the context of the French mobilities framework act (Loi d'orientation des mobilités, or LOM), these are questions that Valérie Dreyfuss, general delegate of the inclusive mobility laboratory, Sandrine De Boras, innovation manager at Transdev, and Gérard Hernja, training manager at Ecole française de conduite and teacher of the inter-university diploma 'Conseiller mobilité insertion' (Mobility and insertion advisor) will try to answer.
