– About the future of the aviation industry through Advanced Digitalisation and the transformative project Air Mobility

Welcome to participate for 45 minutes to learn more about the Air Mobility project, which is
funded by one of Sweden’s largest research and innovation programs, Advanced Digitalisation.
Advanced Digitalisation is currently an ongoing and significant billion-dollar investment in Sweden.
One of the major projects being funded is Advanced Air Mobility, which aims to explore how,
through broad collaboration and modern technology, we can develop a more digitized future with
unmanned flight in combination with the conventional.

During the seminar, a panel will discuss how Air Mobility contributes to increased automation with
increased sustainability in the transport sector through digitization, automation and artificial
intelligence. How will a developed combined airspace work, what will future airports look like and
what challenges are there to enable door-to-door transport?

The seminar begins with a presentation on Advanced Digitization and then focuses on Air Mobility
and its importance for the aviation infrastructure of the future.

Welcome to participate and listen to the seminar’s discussions about the aviation industry and its
role in the global transport sector.

Cities hold significant importance in achieving climate goals. Here, actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change need to be taken while simultaneously attending to social justice and inclusion. Innovative partnerships between research and practice can help guide and realize just climate transitions.

Actions aimed at mitigating and adapting to climate change encompass a diverse array of approaches. Urban development is intricate and context-specific, involving multiple stakeholders with diverse interests, operating across various sectors and levels of governance. In this complexity, efforts to address climate change must be coupled with the pursuit of equally momentous societal goals related to justice, equality, and inclusion. Merely addressing climate change without considering these factors will not yield sustainable outcomes.

Participants of this session will witness firsthand how capacity for just climate transitions need to be built at local and urban levels. The focus is on the capability of public organisations to facilitate such change. Partners of an innovative research school will give voice to how just climate transitions can be accelerated through close collaboration between research and practice. You will hear examples of how it responds to concrete dilemmas and needs in the urban context, and of the process of conducting research that responds to actual challenges and fit directly into a practice-based context. The aim is to build integrated knowledge and capacity that can transform our cities and communities in a sustainable manner.

Join AI Sweden’s side event during Sweden Innovation Days, where we delve into projects that may reshape industries and mindsets to drive innovation forward. Our webinar brings together thought leaders and experts to explore the intersection of technology, healthcare, climate and societal impact.

Two Key Topics:

AI for Deep Green Transition: Explore how AI can catalyze a global shift towards sustainability

We’ll showcase a groundbreaking project led by AI Sweden and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) aimed at identifying how to accelerate the world’s mindset towards green transition. Learn why it’s important to investigate how AI can catalyze a global shift towards sustainability and how it can change behaviors in society to really address environmental challenges on a deep systemic level and drive impactful change.

During this part of the session we will interact with the audience through the webinar chat function to give the attendees the opportunity to give input to the project on how AI can catalyze a global shift towards sustainability and e.g. share suggestions for experts that can share valuable input knowledge. We are eager to give the attendees a chance to interact and influence the project.

Speakers :

International Collaboration in Healthcare

What are the opportunities with global collaborations on healthcare? How can cross-border partnerships foster innovation, driving knowledge exchange, and ultimately benefiting society at large. We’ll spotlight a recent collaboration with the aim to accelerate the adoption of AI in healthcare in Sweden and Canada.  Together, AI Sweden, Swedish hospitals and Unity Health aims at accelerating AI adoption in healthcare in both countries as well as serving as a global role model on international collaboration and the positive impact of AI in healthcare.
