International Conference on Mobility Challenges

Ecole CentraleSupélec Université Paris Saclay
6 décembre 2018 to 7 décembre 2018 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Land transportation for passengers and merchandises is one of the major sources of CO2 emissions worldwide and urban toxic particles (NOx, fine particles…). Emissions are barely declining in OCDE countries and bound to grow in emerging countries due to the increase in standards of living and urbanization. This situation creates an important challenge for the mitigation of climate change and the preservation of human health: new technologies have been launched, a set of complementary policies has been designed both national and local, and consuming habits are changing.

Coordinators: Jean-Pierre Ponssard (Chair Energy and Prosperity) and Yannick Perez (Chair Armand Peugeot)
