Awarded at World Tourism Forum Lucerne
EuroTube was invited to present its project and vision of vacuum transportation on an international stage at the World Tourism Forum Lucerne from 1st – 3rd May https://www.wtflucerne.org.
“Tourism is one of the most important drivers for the development of a country or a destination and strongly connects to many other industries” – says Prof. Martin Barth, President and CEO of the WTFL. However, the growing social and environmental impact of global tourism is increasing fast and the need for action and the call for alternatives is certain. Next to different other organizations who introduced their innovations, EuroTube presented its plans of fostering R&D of new technologies and its support for the emerging industry of vacuum transportation as a solution for a sustainable and fast alternative to flying https://wtfl2019.wtflucerne.org/webcasts. In fact, CO2 emissions from international air transport are increasing faster than from any other sector.
Finally, EuroTube won the 1st prize of the WTFL Start-Up Innovation Camp 2019 in the Mobility category. This makes the team feel honored and motivated to further innovate the future of sustainable mobility.
