Wistrand hosts webinar at Gothenburg Tech Week 2020

Wistrand Law Firm will host the webinar Transformation of the mobility landscape – legal challenges and opportunities on 1 September 2020 at 3.00-4.00 p.m. CET.

For the sixth year in a row, Gothenburg Tech Week is being held, which is aimed at everyone who is interested in learning more about technology and entrepreneurship. It’s a place for networking, collaboration, sharing and spreading ideas and knowledge. Wistrand is the proud organizer of the webinar “Transformation of the mobility landscape – legal challenges and opportunities” to be held on 1 September 2020 at 3.00-4.00 p.m. CET.

Autonomous Vehicles and different types of Mobility-as-a-Services are fundamentally going to change our society and create prerequisites for more efficient resource utilization with reduced climate impact. It is an exciting and positive development, where new technology and new business models create opportunities for companies to enter the market, but also challenges both existing players and the current legal framework.

During the webinar, Hendrik Kangasmuukko and Jeanette Jönsson from Wistrand will, together with Kristina Andersson from RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden), go through a number of challenges and opportunities regarding the regulatory framework surrounding Autonomous Vehicles and Mobility-as-a-Service. What does it take for Sweden to be at the very forefront of this technological evolution? Will changes be required to the technology and business models or in the legal framework? Or is a combination thereof required? What is your opinion?

For further information and to register to the webinar, please refer to Gothenburg Tech Week’s website. We look forward to your participation and hope to receive many questions.
