InnoTrans Podcast: Simply Stay on Track

Feb. 9, 2021
Episode 1 features a conversation with Dr. Ben Möbius, Managing Director of the German Railway Industry Association (VDB).

The InnoTrans Podcast is all about the future of mobility. We take you on an exciting journey and talk to international industry representatives about current developments, trends and challenges. Additionally, the team presents exclusive insights about the upcoming InnoTrans 2022.

Monthly presented by Kerstin Schulz, director of InnoTrans and Tim Benedict Wegner, InnoTrans press officer.

The first podcast’s guest will be Dr. Ben Möbius, managing director of the German Railway Industry Association. In the interview he talks about how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted the rail industry. The focus will also be on ambitious mobility solutions in response to the wide-ranging challenges of a green recovery and the opportunities that digitalization offers. Other topics will include innovative mobility concepts at InnoTrans 2022.

“The green recovery needs forward-looking mobility concepts and therefore it needs InnoTrans. The focus is on two things simultaneously: restarting growth and protecting the environment. In a fossil-fuel transport environment the two usually contradict other. Rail 4.0 means we can combine both. Creating new services instead of imposing bans is the path to an emissions-free future in the mobility sector. A one-hundred per cent travel experience, a one-hundred per cent pioneering spirit and zero emissions – InnoTrans is the forum for that," said Möbius.
