• Air transport and airports – Rosário Macário, Eddy Van de Voorde and Wouter Dewulf

Globalization of aviation industry is changing markets and the power relationships between agents. Who will be the new winners and loosers ?
    Key words: aviation, markets, globalization, game strategy
Decarbonization of air transport needs Demo validation, but Demos need new evaluation methodologies
    Key words: air transport, technology, decarbonization, evaluation

• Maritime transport and ports – Christa Sys, Claudio Ferrari and Seraphim Kapros

• Inland navigation and ship building – Jeroen Pruyn, Alessio Tei and Edwin van Hassel

Keywords: future of shipbuilding; challenges for ship production and design, new IWW strategies
For the key points: The need for adapting to climate modifications and the introduction of alternative energy solutions represent key challenges for both shipbuilding and IWW companies; Shipbuilding will need to adapt to new technologies and exploit the possibility for using novel digital solutions; Data and data driven methods will be fundamental for guaranteeing and monitoring sustainability in design, shipbuilding, refits and recycling

• Passenger land transport – Stéphanie Souche, Eckhard Szimba and Amalia Polydoropoulou

• Rail and intermodality – Kay Mitusch, Florent Laroche and Thierry Vanelslander

• Land and Last-mile logistics – Athena Roumboutsos, Joris Beckers and Vasco Reis
