Flanders as catalyst for a mature hyperloop ecosystem

In June 2021 VIL was appointed “Theme Manager” Hyperloop. This new form of cargo transport offers major opportunities to create a faster, safer and more resilient transport mode.

VIL connected with all major global hyperloop developers and has laid the foundation for Flanders’ innovators to effectively contribute to a mature hyperloop ecosystem that will change the transport paradigm.

During this event the objectives for Flanders to integrate hyperloop as a research domain will be underlined as well as the reasons highlighted why Flanders is an innovation hotspot. The state of play talk will focus on the fact that hyperloop is gravitating towards cargo. 

Don’t wait to register for this unique event. Places are limited.  This is a free event but registration is required.
