We gratefully acknowledge the ministry for science and culture for funding the European Hyperloop Symposium

The Symposium:

Transportation is heavily challenged by global phenomena such as population growth, urbanization and climate change which lead to contrasting needs of providing more frequent and faster connections while reducing emissions. Among the new transport modes proposed, the Hyperloop is an emerging concept for mid/long-distance travels as a carbon-free alternative to airplanes and as a complement to the railway network both in preserving investments already completed and planned and in unlocking the full economic and social development of the areas not yet served by premium transport modes. The Hyperloop is a guided mode of transport that operates magnetically levitating vehicles running at sonic speed (at their maximum speed) within a low-pressure tube. Such a concept is set to rely exclusively on renewable sources like solar energy also leveraging the extension of the linear infrastructure as a whole. We invite you to submit an abstract to the First European Hyperloop Symposium 2020. The symposium will include invited keynotes and give a chance to focus on European potentials for the next generation of transportation.
