26 March 2020: 5th Rural Mobility Seminar becomes a webinar!
Due to the latest developments regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have taken the decision to cancel the physical seminar and we are instead moving it into the digital realm by hosting a webinar.
The 5th and last Rural Mobility Seminar organised by the MAMBA consortium will focus on digitalisation and new technology that can improve rural mobility. The event will take take place on 26 March 2020, at 12:30 CET.
New innovative mobility solutions based on innovative technologies represent a crucial element for the development of rural areas. Also, digitalisation has been more and more present in rural areas, one example being how the agricultural landscape is becoming more autonomous. With agriculture becoming more automatised, could self-driving vehicles and electrical technologies also be part of the solution to challenges connected to mobility and service in rural areas?
While some countries of the Baltic Sea Region are more digitally advanced, others still struggle to ensure basic network coverage, threatening the development of their rural areas. The situation begs the question – is it possible for countries who are more developed to inspire and support other regions? And what basic knowledge and governance is necessary for technology to be implemented?
