CEA is hosting several webinars in 2021. These webinars are part of the Transportation Series; which will include our sponsors from CEA’s upcoming Transportation Connects Alberta Conference, March 13-15, 2022.

TransPod Ultra-High-Speed Transportation: A Canadian Breakthrough

Breakthrough innovation is only possible by combining leading research, strategy and vision. This talk features the inventor of TransPod, a new Canadian technology for 1000 km/h transportation. TransPod is being developed to carry passengers between cities, faster than flying, and with the convenience of a high-speed train. The TransPod vehicle is a cross between an aircraft and a train, and is being developed in Canada and Europe, based on new breakthroughs in physics and engineering. You will learn about the TransPod story, international development, science, and the TransPod project in Alberta to connect Calgary and Edmonton.
