From October to December 2021, ATCT challenged students from Belgium and abroad to reconsider their travel experiences on and to their campus and make them futureproof. Very necessary, according to our own research. More than 100 students worked on this challenge with FACES (For everyone, Autonomous, Connected, Electric, Shared) as a thread through their ideas. 20 teams submitted an idea. From a shortlist of 10 teams, 4 teams were chosen by our team and 1 team by a public vote who could join us for the final event.
“Without sharing, the future with autonomous vehicles will be even worse” – Mpact interviews Cathy Macharis (VUB)
Cathy Macharis is a teaching professor in Sustainable Mobility and Logistics at the University of Brussels (VUB), coordinator of the research group MOBI and a writer. We interviewed her about the impact of Covid-19 on our travel behaviour, the rise of autonomous vehicles and the recipe for a future-proof mobility system.

From the 22nd until the 24th of February a gathering of smart and creative people took place in Groot-Bijgaarden, near Brussels. More than 2.000 people joined the event Mobility of the Future. Besides the conference program, there was a hackathon to brainstorm about mobility challenges in Belgium. Read about the results of the #SocialCar challenge.
