IndTech GTI Electro Mobility Event

Digital seminar · November 28

Welcome to our first IndTech GTI event with a focus on Electro Mobility!

Electric vehicles are anticipated to be a key future component of the world’s mobility system in 2030, helping reduce impacts on climate change and air quality. But is it necessarily better for the environment with electrical vehicles?

During this event we would like to discuss this topic from a holistic system perspective looking at the future of mobility (2030 perspective), and how global collaborations could be a key in building this future together.

This event is organized by Swedish IndTech and we are proud to co-host this first session on Electro Mobility together with the US organization Womanium and GTI - Sweden US Green Transition Initiative. 

Invited speakers – Linda Andrén, Robert Falck, Jennifer Gerbi, Elin Svanström, Henric Johnson, Catarina Berglund, Karin Olofsdotter, Andreas Follér, Alyssa Haerle and Prachi J. Vakharia

About the program

The IndTech Green Transition Initiative Program is a collaborative program created by Automation Region together with PiiA and GTI (Green Transition Initiative). The purpose is to accelerate the green transition in Swedish industry in collaboration with forefront tech companies in Silicon Valley. During the autumn, a series of talks will be held with selected organizations in Sweden and the USA to identify strategies and working methods.

The Green Transition Initiative is a joint initiative of Business Sweden, the Swedish Energy Agency, Vinnova and the Swedish Embassy in Washington. The objectives are to position Sweden as a key partner to the United States in its climate transition, connect Swedish and U.S. stakeholders within the green energy ecosystem, and to leverage opportunities in sectors such as electromobility, renewable energy, sustainable industry, and green buildings.
