How can the data economy unlock the full potential of European Transport?

The Digital Single Market strategy is very high on the European political agenda. Data is widely used across sectors in an increasingly connected world. The transport sector is no exception. The potential of data use is huge to maximize transport efficiency. But what is needed to ensure a responsible use of data? What legal frame is needed? Whose responsibility is it? Will we soon talk about digital mobility?

Top policy-makers and stakeholders will gather at the European Transport Forum in Brussels to tackle these issues at a high-level debate on the future of the European Transport system.
