Ferrovial Participates in This Year's 2021 South Summit Event


South Summit

On October  5th , 6th  and 7th the largest event oriented to the entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem in Southern Europe will be held in Madrid: South Summit. 

Ten years ago, this event was born with a purpose, to be the reference hub that shapes the future via initiative, entrepreneurship, open innovation and business opportunities. And today it continues with that same purpose.

This edition will be in mixed format, and attendance at the event is allowed, although the capacity is reduced. Online attendance is still one of the options, so you will be able to attend the different presentations via streaming.​​​​​​​

Would you like to attend?

Ferrovial gives you the opportunity to attend this event and you will choose whether you prefer to do it virtually or in person. Ferrovial is offering nearly 200 tickets for free.

Please do not reserve an in-person ticket if you are not sure you will be able to attend due to the limited number of tickets available. You will be preventing another colleague from attending. See the following link for more information on what is included in each ticket.

What will you be able to see at this event?

Ferrovial has an extensive participation in the content of South Summit. Ferrovial colleagues are participating both as members of the jury in some of the verticals of the start-ups competition as well as in the different content sections planned in this new format.

On October 5, you will have the opportunity to listen to David Pocero, Director of Energy Efficiency at Ferrovial Construction, in a round table on innovation in the energy sector.

During the second day, October 6, you will be able to attend the panel discussion in which Dimitris Bountolos, CIIO of Ferrovial, Alberto Granados, President of Microsoft Spain, and Christopher Gehlen, co-founder and CEO of the start-up Neutroon, will talk about “connected corridors, AIVIA and how Ferrovial is preparing for the future of connected and autonomous vehicles”.

Also on the 6th, you will have the opportunity to attend the very interesting talk between Gonzalo Velasco, Director of Business Plan and Innovation at Ferrovial Airports, Alexander Assiely, Chief Strategy Officer at Lilium, and Gabriel Perdiguero, Chief Customer & Transformation Officer at Iberia, about the “present and future of Urban Air Mobility”.

On the same day, a prime-time conversation about ” mobility as a service (MaaS)” between Andrés Camacho, Director of Mobility at Ferrovial, and Sampo Hietanen, founder and CEO of the Finnish start-up Maas Global, which recently acquired Wondo, is also worth mentioning.

In addition, you will have the chance to hear details about the pilot of remotely operated vehicles that Ferrovial will carry out together with Zity, the Madrid City Council and the DGT using technology from Israeli start-up, Ottopia. The round table, which will be attended by representatives of all parties, will be presented and moderated by Javier Mateos, CEO of Zity.

Ferrovial will also have a stand at the South Summit marketplace.

We encourage all those of you who decide to attend in person to stop by and try out the NTE driving simulator that will be available there.

In addition to Ferrovial’s participation, South Summit offers a wide variety of activities. We encourage you to dive into the South Summit program and find and attend those activities of your interest.
