Drive Sweden Forum, 9 September
We are delighted to invite you to Drive Sweden Forum, which this time will be held online, on the 9th of September. Our exciting webinar will dive deeper into the developments within future mobility around the world, with speakers from Asia, Europe and the US. You will get the chance to hear international takes on the services and products of tomorrow, insights from Drive Sweden partners and projects and what is needed in order to keep pushing the boundaries.
