  • An FH Overview on the Future of EU Transport

    October 20, 2017

    The only certainty we have is that everything is uncertain. Of course, that applies to the EU transport sector as well. In times of confusion and lack of trust, it is important to plan ahead and try to minimise any risks. With dieselgate not being that far behind, manufacturers are trying to regain the trust of millions of EU citizens who are now sceptical towards other promises. Additionally, the industry is attempting to grasp the...

  • FH Brussels at the IAA2017: a politically charged edition

    October 3, 2017

    Last Monday 25 September, only two statistics mattered in Germany, an attendee at the International Motor Show (IAA) 2017 in Frankfurt told me: the outcome of the federal elections, which resulted in a substantial loss for the incumbent government, and the number of IAA visitors. The former may well bring Germany’s Greens into the government’s fold, a party that has pledged to ban combustion engines by 2030. The latter, if declining, would give a tacit...
