Steen Christiansen, Mayor, Albertslund Municipality


Christina Melvang, CEO, WE BUILD DENMARK


Teddy Sibbern Axelsen, Head of DOLL Living Lab



How can we support the future of mobility? What are the needs of tomorrow and how can a living lab help address some of these needs and the challenges that lies ahead, both for cities, suppliers and advisors? Should cities, suppliers and advisors rethink how we address mobility today and if so, can DOLL Living Lab be a place where we activate this ecosystem to support e.g. systems thinking, coordination across road authorities? These are some of the questions that this section will explore. We will involve key actors from the mobility ecosystem, addressing their perspectives, needs, challenges and opportunities for the future of mobility.


13.15 Mobility Design & Hype Wars

Jens Martin Skibsted, Global Partner, VP Foresight & Mobility at Manyone


Mobility design is in a transition phase. The preconditions for effective Urban Mobility have fundamentally changed. Urban planning, infrastructure seem to be the du jour answer, but traditional design is a big part of the answer. New transitional transportation typologies for cities are on the rise. However, new typologies seem to be guided more by hype than real needs and desirable lifestyles.


13.30 Introducing Design Thinking into Future Mobility Planning

Robert Martin, Architect & PhD in future urban mobility, Head of Mobility, JAJA Architects


Discussions surrounding the future of mobility allow society to pose new questions as to how we should use our urban streets. Should streets merely be storage areas for privately owned cars? Or do advancements in active, micro, shared, and collective mobility technologies allow society to reclaim streets as new spaces for social and economic opportunities? And what new infrastructures and partnerships are required to support these new mobility systems? This presentation will provide an overview of JAJA Architects’ work with the future of mobility, showcasing our designerly approach to projects that range from future visions of cities to pilot projects that tests these ideas at the human scale.


13.45 Panel Debate: How Can The Ecosystem of Partners Utilize a Testing and Experimentation Facility as DOLL Living Lab to Advance the Future of Traffic and Mobility?
How can a Living Lab be used as an instrument to support development, innovation and collaboration for the ecosystem’s partners? What are the expectations to utilizing a Living Lab facility? How do we ensure that a Living Lab are a relevant innovation platform? What areas of ITS is particularly relevant for the future of ITS and mobility? What key challenges and opportunities is to be foreseen? This panel debate will highlight how to best utilize a Living Lab facility by and for the ITS partner ecosystem.

Networking, drinks & snacks



When governing smart sustainable cities, intelligent and flexible mobility management is argued to be a key instrument. With the help from city representatives and other experts we discuss main barriers and opportunities to for utilizing data-based and demand-driven instruments.


16.45 Panel Debate: Demand-driven Approaches for Cites of Tomorrow; Opportunities and Barriers
How we can create a more demand-driven infrastructure based on different data sources from our city environment such as public transport, shared mobility services, micro-mobility and bicycles? Demand-driven infrastructure that are customized to the needs of the city and its citizens is possible to a much higher degree than what is seen today. Together with key industry actors we will during this panel debate explore the different possibilities of using mobility, transport and infrastructure data as input and knowledge in intelligent traffic systems and smart infrastructure. What are the needs from ITS suppliers, mobility operators and road authorities? How can we support the needs and solve challenges from the city’s perspective? What points of awareness should cities have when creating tenders for their infrastructure? Join us when we explore some of these questions during the panel debate.

Sustainable Mobilities in Liveable and Intelligent Cities

Cities transport challenges are rapidly growing. They invest in Intelligent Transport Systems to help solve transport challenges. Learn from cities committing to public transportation, cycling, and walking investing in improved bus prioritization systems and prioritize certain modes of transport suitable for urban areas. Hear from leading cities investing in significant traffic management systems to optimizing traffic flow and enhance safety on existing road infrastructure. The move from traffic management to mobility management is evident. Last, we will have political decision-makers to discuss a shift towards more sustainable modes and possibilities for cross-city traffic management.

The session is targeted at:

  • City planners, traffic planners, smart city consultants within municipalities
  • Public transport authorities and operators
  • Policymakers and regulatory bodies
  • Technology, service and equipment providers
  • Data architecture and IT system firms
  • Research and development organisations
  • Specialized European institutes/networks into Mobility and city planning


Tech & AI: How to Work with the Next Level of Flexibility in ITS

How to build for more intelligence and flexibility? How to understand the system architecture when building e.g. an intelligent traffic light. An architecture that not only optimize the flow of traffic, but also manage input/data from third party vendors for greater flexibility, prioritization of certain modes of transport, multimodality, serve environmental goals, and more.

When integrating and making use of data such as floating car data, data from busses, bikes, car sharing platforms, weather data, environmental data, or the like, what is then the building blocks available to build a flexible and intelligent infrastructure securing better mobility? How to interact with different modes of transport, road authorities, etc.?

And not least, what role does AI have in the future, where data is shared openly ready to be used more intelligently? What challenges does it present and what opportunities are just around the corner?

These are some of the pressing questions that we will explore together with industry experts and other specialists in the field.

The session is targeted at:

  • Traffic engineers
  • Traffic operators
  • Utility companies
  • ITS suppliers
  • Consultants and other professionals working with traffic.

Green mode: Creating Value from Mobility as a Service

Mobility is both growing and changing. Growth in urban population and online goods consumption is placing new demands on our mobility networks.

Environmental sustainability has become top priority for our cities, yet they still need to be accessible without compromising residents’ quality of life or freedom of mobility. Cities need to redefine the mobility network of the future around people rather than cars.

Mobility data is crucial to understand how people use a city and get around both before, during and after reshaping the urban mobility ecosystem.

In this session we will explore how to enable freedom of mobility using Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and what the challenges are to get there, can a Living Lab facility as DOLL be a catalyzer for testing open mobility and what will it require of authorities, mobility actors, ITS vendors, consultancies etc.?

The session is targeted at:

  • Municipal, regional and national mobility authorities
  • Specialists and decision makers
  • Researchers
  • Suppliers of ITS and digital mobility data
  • Mobility service actors and consultants
  • MaaS agents etc.
