Innovation Ecosystems and Public-Private Partnerships for Sustainable Mobility

September 21, 2016

Wednesday, September 21 | 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM UTC+0
EUREF Campus

Overview

EUREF CampusThe focus of this extension is on the future of technology and sustainability in the mobility sector. Driven by shifts in consumer demand, technology forcing by legislative bodies, and broader ecological concerns, traditional modes of transportation (i.e., private automobiles powered by internal combustion engines) are increasingly facing substitution by alternatives such as private automobiles powered by electric motors, car-sharing, ride-sharing, app-based transportation networks, mass transportation, and multi-mode travel. Even mass transportation options such as buses and trains are at risk of substitution, as consumers find that car sharing is a viable alternative.

Research in Strategic Management on Innovation Ecosystems provides a natural lens to understand how public and private entities will respond to incentives to innovate, and who will benefit from disruptions in the sector.

What is most interesting about current changes in the mobility sector is that, rather than wholesale substitution of older technologies by new ones, we see that new technologies are replacing various components of existing system architectures. For example, electric motors and fuel cells have the potential to eventually replace internal combustion engines in vehicles, and car sharing has the potential to eventually replace business models implied by the single ownership of vehicles. Still, both new and old technologies and business models are likely to be part of the overall mobility mix for many years to come. Advantage is likely to accrue to those actors (firms; entrepreneurs; city governments; regions) that can coordinate and collaborate most effectively to create the mobility ecosystem that provides the greatest value to its users.
