The fulfilment of the European CO2 reduction targets until 2050 needs realistic technical solutions including backwards compatible approaches for existing vehicle fleet. An economic and sustainable development towards climate neutral mobility requires a holistic view on base of life cycle assessments for the different mobility approaches including the economic impact as well as the financing model. A synergetic discussion of solutions for future fuels and powertrain technologies is needed to develop an economic pathway to a sustainable and affordable mobility of tomorrow. The challenging target for mobility can only be achieved by an international cooperation of universities, the vehicle producers, the mineral oil industry, the energy producer and the legislative bodies. The international colloquium aims to contribute to the development into a climate neutral mobility by the exchange and the discussion of all aspects connected with the system “powertrain/fuel/environment” including the needed political regulations.
