Share via:


Build a global network of university research teams to create solar based automated elevated mobility systems with support of MIT alumni



MIT alum Francis de Winter is sponsor and advisor to the Spartan Superway, winner of the 2013 Solar Skyways Challenge. He is reaching out to MIT alumni in solar energy, infrastructure development, automation, urban transport, economics, etc., to join the international Solar Skyways Network of universities which are building a global network of university research teams to create 100% solar powered automated elevated mobility systems.

What actions do you propose?

MIT alumni and other interested parties are encouraged to team with Francis de Winter (MIT '58) in accelerating the development of solar-based urban transit.

A teaming framework for elaboration of this proposal is in preparation.
