On 29 October, EU transport ministers met for a Virtual Informal Meeting chaired by Federal Minister of Transport Andreas Scheuer. The Passau Declaration - the “Smart Deal for Mobility” - aims to make mobility in Europe sustainable, safe and efficient.
Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer:
Our European Meeting of Transport Ministers is overcoming the corona restrictions as we are taking Passau to Berlin and bringing Europe’s capitals together. On the occasion of today’s Informal Council of Transport Ministers, we are presenting Passau to the whole of Europe as an attractive location for innovative businesses. Passau is home to innovative research, excellent research centres and also provides an ideal breeding ground for start-ups. Therefore we will take you on a virtual tour of the “Opportunities presented by the Digital Revolution” exhibition at Passau University. Other insights will be given by astronaut Dr Alexander Gerst and Professor Matthias Nießner from the Munich University of Technology on artificial intelligence.
