We’re delighted to announce that our Future of Technology Series is back in-person at the Royal Institution, London!


The Future of Technology Series aims to illuminate the challenges and opportunities facing the global automotive industry. Each event brings together key industry figures and leading academics to discuss, debate and challenge the way we think about a wide range of innovations.


Join us on 17 March 2022 as we explore how strategies developed by UK government departments align with the challenges faced by the industry in commercialising the latest technologies and support the transition to net zero in the transport sector.


Experts across government, the automotive industry and academia will debate questions such as:

  • How will infrastructure strategies need to be developed to balance policy drivers, the speed of roll-out and associated costs?
  • How will the challenges in rolling-out innovation be addressed through future legislative measures?
  • Can policymakers and technology developers work together to accelerate progress towards a cleaner, greener future?


Event agenda:

  • 12:00 – 13:00 Lunch and networking
  • 13:00 – 14:35 Keynote speaker followed by three shorter presentations and a panel debate
  • 14:35 – 15:10 Networking break
  • 15:10 – 16:45 Keynote speaker followed by three shorter presentations and a panel debate
