You are invited to join us at our next quarterly series of Cluster Meetings on May 17th at the La Kretz Innovation Campus. This upcoming round of cluster meetings will include updates on programming in the respective clusters, industry briefings, and presentations from LACI portfolio companies.
Additionally, we are mixing things up this Spring! To encourage cross-collaboration, we will be linking up the Built Environment and Transportation cluster meetings through a thought-provoking lunch panel discussion on the impact on infrastructure from the fast approaching shift to self-driving vehicles.
11:00a – 12:00p Built Environment Cluster Meeting
12:00p – 1:00p Joint Panel: “The fast approaching shift to self-driving cars is an opportunity to re-imagine this relationship between transportation and the built environment.”
1:00p – 2:00p Transportation Cluster Meeting
Feel free to come for any or all of the programming that interests you and stay tuned for updates on speakers!
For the last hundred years cities have been built around the use and storage of the automobile, but the fast approaching shift to self-driving cars is an opportunity to re-imagine this relationship between transportation and the built environment. As policymakers, program managers, designers, and planners begin to wrestle with crafting visions of what may soon be possible, how do we ensure that the decisions we make and the infrastructure we build today don’t lock us into a sub-optimal, or even dystopian, future?
