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!

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.
