As part of Shell Eco-Marathon the main topic for this event was “Mobility – cleaner transport for a cleaner future”.

In Shell Eco-Marathon over 200 European student teams compete in designing, building and testing ultra-energy-efficient vehicles.
The program consisted of a lecture by Dick Benschop (Shell) and an insight into the vision for the energy supply of a sustainable transport system by Richard Smokers (TNO).
In an interactive round table discussion and a panel discussion by Henri Koolen (VDL), Richard Smokers (TNO) and Vincent Oomes (Deloitte), solutions to the question: “What do we need to do to accelerate the process for cleaner transport?” had been discussed, and concluded with networking, drinks and snacks.
