Spurring Sustainable Mobility

11/28/2018 |<img src="http://www.ik4.es/upload/noticias/img/noticia_web_mobility.jpg" data-link="" /> The management of smarter, less contaminating transport, the most advanced solutions to electric mobility and the uses of artificial intelligence in automated driving were some of the subjects dealt with at the Go Mobility encounter, the first industrial fair in southern Europe devoted to the sustainable mobility of the future, which was held on 27 and 28 November at the Ficoba premises in Irun.

The IK4 technological alliance, with its long experience in developing advanced solutions for electromobillity and energy storage, had a noteworthy participation in this encounter, with its own exhibition space featuring the CEIT, LORTEK and TEKNIKER centres.

In the meantime, IKERLAN shared space with the lift manufacturer Orona and Mondragon University.

“We highly appreciate this forum for a sector in clear expansion, which drives the development of new technologies where our centres hold a broad range of capacities. The first edition of Go Mobility has brought together all the Basque stakeholders working in this field, combining a programme of highly interesting expositions and presentations and receiving a broad response from a high-quality professional audience,“ alliance sources pointed out.

The forum, which managed to assemble over 2,100 professionals from the sector, enjoyed the emphatic support of both the Regional Council of Gipuzkoa and the Basque Government. The general representative of Gipuzkoa, Markel Olano, and the councillor for Economic Development and Infrastructures, Arantxa Tapia, attended the event and visited the stands occupied by IK4 members.

The programme of presentations focused on aspects such as rapid charging systems for electric vehicles, measures to promote electromobility in Europe, collaborative transport resources and smart solutions for electrical safety applied to transport.

In a word, the first Go Mobility edition has made it possible to visualise details of the enormous variety of products, projects, initiatives and stakeholders striving to develop this sector of the future – a sphere of activity where the participation of Gipuzkoa in particular and the Basque Country in general are at the international forefront, with IK4 centres as significant actors.
