BOZAR and Buskerud County invite you to embark on an expedition into solutions for sustainable automated transport systems during the two-day conference Human Explorer, in the framework of the European Mobility Week.

Norway has a long-standing tradition of pushing human mobility to its limits through its historic polar explorers, using state-of-the-art technology. As a ‘house of change’ in the heart of the European Capital, BOZAR is the ideal platform to discuss and reflect upon solutions for future mobility systems.

Tuesday 17 September the notion of mobility is approached from a broader vantage point. Can we maintain our current level of mobility and at the same time support the climate actions and build new sustainable cities? How can autonomous technology play a role in the creation of sustainable industries, stimulate economic growth and cater to the quality of life of citizens.

Wednesday 18 September youth representatives from Belgium and Norway will give their policy advice for more sustainable communities and transport systems to decision makers (closed event)

Thursday 19 September we crossover into the future. Shedding more light on the latest developments on autonomous mobility at sea, inland waterways and in the city. How will they affect our transport systems, urban development and the way we organise our societies.

The event brings together stakeholders from the fields of technology, industry, research, design and politics, from the Buskerud and Greater Oslo region in Norway, Belgium and Europe. Come and be inspired by innovative projects, solutions and research, and broaden your network during a series of keynotes, panel discussions and project presentations.
