The first online event of the "Conference Series on European Hyperloop Technology" took place on February 23rd. 2021. It was organized by the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer, Germany. [...]

The University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer in cooperation with the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg introduce the Conference Series dedicated to European Hyperloop Technology and future implementations in transportation systems on a European scale. The first conference focusses on the development of Large-Scale Research Infrastructure to foster the Hyperloop Technology and its realization. As a collaborative effort both universities are active in the project EU HyTeC (European Hyperloop Technology Center) funded by the state of Lower Saxony, which evaluates the evolution of the existing 32km MagLev test track in Lathen, Germany, towards a European Hyperloop Research Facility. The universities are closely collaborating with the INTIS GmbH and the ministries of lower saxony to make a European Hyperloop Development Center in Lathen, Germany a reality.

Björn Thümler, Minister of Science and Culture of Lower Saxony, will introduce the conference auditory by a welcoming address. Keynote presentations will emphasize on Hyperloop challenges from different perspectives. The point of views of economy, science, teaching and last but not least operating facilities will be presented. A workshop session will then gather these aspects and pave the way towards a contribution in the new research framework program Horizon Europe.
