About this event


The automotive industry is going through one of the biggest transformations in its history. Alongside digitisation and automation, electrification is now an inevitable underpinning industrial strategy of most European automakers. But are we on track to lead the global transition to zero emissions? How can EU regulations help automotive accelerate and win the race to zero?

As the European Commission is finalising its long awaited Fit-for-55 package, including measures on automotive industry, T&E is convening leading politicians and industry experts to discuss the future of the automotive sector and its regulation.

The webinar will look into EU progress and policies around vehicle emissions, electric vehicle supply, infrastructure and jobs to answer the key question on everyone’s minds: when can we go to zero? And what do we need to get there timely & effectively?
