Prof. dr. Cathy Macharis is a curator of the Fast, Clean Mobility Challenge at Hack Belgium 2018. Topics that will be discussed are: Mobility-as-a-service, autonomous vehicles and the physical internet. Cathy invited several external experts to give a first inspirational pitch and then the participants will start working on how to tackle the challenges. Already confirmed are MOBI’s own prof. dr. Lieselot Vanhaverbeke, autonomous vehicle expert and Rob Roemers, Mobility-as-a-Service expert.
A full overview of the challenge and curators is available here.
“Together with 1000 participants, we’re going to tackle the societal challenges we feel aren’t being taken seriously enough. Twelve challenges, touching every facet of our lives and society. The 3-day program will take us from inspiration to building to launching our own projects. Projects that bring us new opportunities, new business and new perspectives.”
“Hack Belgium 2018 aims to solve 12 societal challenges. These were derived from the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At Hack Belgium 2018, each of the challenges and technologies will have a lead expert. This expert will define his or her sector and select other experts to work with them.”
Hack Belgium 2018 takes place from 26th until 28th of April at Tour & Taxis, Brussels.
