Guy Fournier, Prof. at Pforzheim University in Germany and CentraleSupélec in Paris

Guy Fournier is Professor affiliated to Pforzheim University in Germany and CentraleSupélec in Paris. He is an expert in sustainable mobility and system innovation which serves general interest. French born and equipped with a German Doctorate Degree, he has worked primarily in the technology sector in several countries in Europe prior to joining academia. His core interest and expertise, honed by many projects, rests within international economy, sustainable development and new innovative business models with electric vehicles, automated vehicles, MaaS (Mobilty as a Service), self-learning ITS (Intelligent Transport System) etc. Here he has guided municipalities, companies of German industry and the European Union towards more eco-friendly and sustainable approaches to energy consumption and mobility, engaging stakeholders to make mobility truly citizen centric, inclusive, sustainable, economically viable, safe and resilient. He is currently working on a Horizon project to design and carry out full scale demonstrations of urban transport automation by deploying, for the first time worldwide, fleets of automated  mini-buses in low to medium demand areas of 4 European demonstrator cities: Geneva, Lyon, Copenhagen and Luxembourg, and 2 replicator cities. In 2012 he got the Award of excellence in teaching from the engineering faculty and the University of Applied Sciences in Pforzheim and in 1994 the Award of best PhD in Germany from SEL-Alcatel Stiftung für Kommunikationsforschung (Stuttgart). He is responsible for international development of the Engineering faculty and author of many contributions to journals and books.
