What is Hyperconnected Europe?
The Hyperconnected Europe initiative is a community of cities and regions jointly creating a vision for the European hyperloop network. Together, we are designing the hyperloop system that radically improves connectivity while eliminating emissions, enabling the goal of net zero by 2050. The initiative is a part of the Hyperloop Development Program, the pan-European public-private collaboration dedicated to bringing hyperloop to reality.join us
What are we working on?
What is hyperloop and how can it serve out future needs?
How does it complement existing modalities, like rail, road and air?
How can it improve the way we travel and ship goods?
Who does it serve and how should it be priced?
What should be the layout of the network?
What should passenger stations and cargo hubs look like and where should they be located?
How does it connect to other modalities?
How do we smartly integrate the tubes into the existing built environment?
How does hyperloop help us achieve the Green Deal goals of zero-emission transport?
What is the economic impact of improved connectivity between European cities?
How does hyperloop relieve pressure on existing infrastructure like highways, railways and airports?
What is the impact be on the fabric and livability of cities?
Why do we need hyperloop?
Growing economy, more mobility, more emissions?
With a growing economy, so grows our need for transport of goods and passengers. The European Commission predicts that demand for transport will increase by 60% in the next 30 years. Does that mean more air travel, more highway congestion, more carbon emissions and more pressure on our living environment? It doesn’t have to.
Hyperloop enables direct city-to-city connectivity at aircraft speeds at zero emissions
With hyperloop, we can travel across Europe within hours, without any emissions. We can ship goods right into the heart of cities without congesting our roads. As hyperloop technology is coming to market, so is the future of a hyperconnected Europe where cities across the Union are connected within hours.
Join Hyperconnected Europe
Do you think that your city should be a part of the European hyperloop network and would you like to learn more about its potential? Participation in the Hyperconnected Europe initiative is open to any European city or region. Fill out the contact form and join us to receive all updates about progress and results, as well as invitations for webinars and surveys.
Cities that join will get an opportunity to sign a ‘letter of support’. By signing the letter this city will get the status of a Supporting City and will be eligible for an interactive webinar to introduce hyperloop and go into the specific mobility challenges of your city. There will of course be ample opportunity to ask questions to understand how hyperloop may change the way we travel and ship goods to, from and into your city.
