The FIA Smart Cities initiative was launched as a platform for knowledge generation and information exchange in the field of sustainable urban mobility. The initiative led by the FIA and supported by Formula E, Michelin, ENEL, Julius Bär, comprises three core pillars, notably the Forums, a Cities Award and a Start-up Contest. This multidimensional approach allows us to bring together actors from various fields, from young entrepreneurs to experienced policy-makers, and foster the process of knowledge sharing.
Built on the axes of Sport and Mobility, the initiative represents a true testimony of the FIA’s comparative advantage to play a role in defining the future of sustainable mobility. The FIA Formula E platform provides a unique arena to showcase innovations in motor sport that help identify potential synergies between technological development and mobility needs.
