During this mission to the Basque Country, the cluster took part in the Go Mobility trade show organized by Mubil, "The present and future of mobility", a trade show bringing together professionals from southern Europe to discuss sustainable mobility. To combine business and innovation, we also discussed two Horizon Europe Cluster 5 calls for smart city projects. The afternoon was devoted to a presentation and e-bus tour by Irizar, as well as B2B meetings with Mubil strategy, IBIL, Dinycion and Innventa Energia.
The second day saw a presentation by the municipality of San Sebastian of the city's smart city challenges, reflected in the bus network, described by the director of San Sebastian's bus operator, D.Bus.
Bilbao, the capital of Spain's Basque Country, was the scene of the third day of the mission, as a metropolis heavily involved in European smart city and smart mobility projects, thanks to its topography similar to that of San Sebastian. We discovered projects presented by the city council (Bilbao zero2, Biotip, Bilbao wifi), the city's bus operator, Bilboko Hiribus, and Ibilkari, the city's car-sharing operator.
