The Future of Mobility – Navigating a revolution

As the world changes, so does our means of getting around in it. When we look back on this time, we will realize that we are currently in the midst of a technological transport revolution - a revolution moving at a pace that is hard to grasp. New products and services that in the coming decades will drastically impact how we move, live and work are being developed - perhaps at an even higher pace after the COVID pandemic - and predicting where that may lead us is not an easy task. We are therefore pleased to welcome you to an exciting AIJA Half-Year Conference (HYC) on The Future of Mobility.

Gothenburg will be the perfect spot to feel the pulse of the technological developments. The city has already clearly established itself as a global hub for innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at improving mobility, particularly within the automotive sector, and always with a dedicated focus on safety and sustainability. Gothenburg is also the hometown of the largest port in Scandinavia, where some 70% of industry and the population of Scandinavia fall within a radius of 500 km, including the three capitals- Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo. 

The May 2022 HYC will be divided into three academic tracks, respectively organised by the AIJA IP/TMT Commission,  the AIJA Corporate and M&A commission and the AIJA Transport Law Commission. The academic programme is also supported by several other commissions, enabling us to offer attractive and diverse sessions to all participants.  

The IP/TMT track will focus on both the automotive and drone industries, which are offering innovative products and services, such as autonomous vehicles. These new technologies come with a broad range of legal challenges, such as data privacy, advertising claims, co-branding, licensing, use of software, management of trade secrets, insurance and liability, the regulatory framework and import and export control.

The Corporate and M&A track will guide participants through several core topics related to M&A in general and to mobility, for example venture capital in the world of mobility start-ups, the role of the banking and financing sector for mobility of payments and the relevance for M&A deals, the old and new fuel of mobility – energy and data – as well as issues on antitrust, cross-border restrictions and appropriate regulatory regimes.

During the Transport Law track, we will investigate how the transport industry is impacted by pandemics. Amongst others, we will focus on the impact on the progress of projects, measures and regulations with relation to environmental issues and digitalisation- still one of the biggest challenges we face today.

Besides a great scientific programme, the Organising Committee will make you discover a lovely city known for its warm relaxed attitude and friendliness, great seafood and (hopefully) long and light midsummer nights.

Come and join us!

Academic programme overview

TRACK #1 - IP & tech: The Future of Automation
The IP / IT track will focus on a broad range of fascinating topics, from advertising, to data protection and the FRAND licensing of new technologies – and everything in between. We will look at manufacturing claims related to AVs and EVs, and how these claims can make manufacturers liable for loss. We will also look at the development and standardisation of FRAND equipment and how different competing but networked systems work in competition with each other.
There’s a lot changing in the automotive industry. Our cars will be able to drive us, and sensors and cameras will play a major role, so we will be faced with nuanced data protection and security challenges. Similarly, the recent increase of the use of drones in a commercial and recreational capacity will give rise to nuanced data protection issues which we will look at. The legal and regulatory framework surrounding drone transactions will also be on the agenda. From an employment perspective we will be looking at home working and the topical employment issues that it brings, as well as the trade secret issues arising as a result of remote working, in these strange times.
Topics to be discussed
• Selling the future - Claims and liability for AVs and EVs
• Antitrust - Navigating automotive competition issues
• Data protection and car tech of the future
• Data protection and drone tech of the future
• Import and export with and of drones
• The Future of Employees´ Mobility
• The gig economy
• Patenting the future of automation
 
TRACK #2 - M&A on the move: Surfing the challenges and catching the waves in a mobility sector under disruption
Sweden is a hot spot for innovation, especially in the fields of mobility – whether it’s seamless payments, self-driving vehicles and other automotive advances, logistics and infrastructure innovation. The presence of international interests in the Scandinavian region in general and the greater Gothenburg region in particular have both seen a huge increase in the last 30 years. The Corporate and M&A track will address several hot topics related to M&A and mobility. The topics will be relevant to delegates who work in corporate law, whether in a global or more local environment, focusing on legal issues and providing insight on challenges, opportunities and best practices. 
Topics to be discussed
• Joint ventures – Corporate and M&A aspects of setting up innovative and viable business partnerships
• Start-up and venture capital world - a fast track to do business in the mobility sector. Corporate, legal and practical aspects
• The MaaS revolution - Mobility as a service and its impact on the transportation industry.
• Digital and smart payments - Legal project management in product launches
• Distressed M&A in the mobility industry – The impact of COVID-19 on transportation
• The old and new fuels of mobility – Data and energy, aspects to consider from a corporate and M&A perspective
 
TRACK #3 - Mobility and digitalisation: In time of crisis, how resilient and sustainable can the transport industry be?
Never in recent history has the world been impacted so heavily and so globally by a virus. Due to that, the Transport Industry is also facing enormous challenges. How will it deal with these challenges and will it be able to come out of this
stronger? Throughout the transport law track we will investigate how the transport industry is impacted by pandemics. Amongst others, we will focus on the impact on the progress of projects, measures and regulations with relation to
environmental issues and digitalisation, still one of the biggest challenges we face today.
Topics to be discussed
• EU Mobility Package
• The use of digital twins in the port and aviation industry
• The influence of COVID on rail transport
• Environmental issues and the impact on the transport industry
• Update on digitalisation in the legal industry
• An insurance perspective
• Is corruption still an issue in the transport sector?
 
HUMAN RIGHTS COMMITTEE PLENARY SESSION - Migration. Moral Obligation of Society
Russia's invasion of Ukraine has once more put issues of refugee rights on the political agenda. Europe responded to the last major displacement crisis in 2015 with reinforced border controls and restrictive migration policies, but seems now to have opened its borders to refugees fleeing the war and declared their readiness to protect them - at least temporarily. Does this reaction constitute a fundamental shift in the EU's attitudes to refugees and its readiness to protect their human rights? This panel discussion offers an analysis of the current displacement crisis and how temporariness is in fact a long-standing feature of refugee governance. We ask, how does this temporariness impact the observance of human rights and adherence to the rule of law in refugee policy?
 
AIJAWOMEN NETWORK + SCILL PLENARY SESSION -  Working Parents Making It Work: Overcoming Maternal and Paternal Bias
Parenthood often triggers the false assumption that young parents are less committed to their careers – or even less competent. As a result, young parents or those who will (or might aspire to) become parents are often considered less for job opportunities, promotions, interesting projects etc. Bias can be overcome if people call out false assumptions, decide to no longer tolerate them and act on that decision. It helps if others follow this example and encourage more to do so.
During this session of the AIJA Women’s Network we will explore the many angles to maternal and paternal bias and how both affect professionals around the world. Join us for a practical workshop, where we will focus on ways to overcome bias by offering tools law firms and lawyers can work with to empower young parents.

CLARION HOTEL POST 

 

The Clarion Hotel Post is a contemporary design hotel in central Gothenburg. The stunning architecture of the old post office building, Posthuset, has been beautifully preserved with modern amenities. Warm, dark colours combined with modern furnishings provide a cosy and homely atmosphere. Combined with the award-winning restaurants, popular bar, spa and rooftop pool, this makes the Clarion Post Hotel stand out as a vibrant meeting place and an arena for a creative Gothenburg. 
Boasting the best location in the city, on Drottningtorget square and just steps from Gothenburg Central Station, bus stops and trams, the expression "staying right in the thick of things" couldn't be more apt.
