That’s one of the findings of a report released Tuesday by London-based automotive research firm Jato Dynamics. However, it found that Europe and the U.S. still have a few things to learn from China, the world’s biggest EV market, including prioritizing affordability, centralizing planning, and using data to better understand consumers.

Demand for cleaner and smarter cars is rising globally, particularly in Europe where the market has been bolstered by tighter emissions regulations along with an increasing awareness of climate change. EV sales in Europe in the first half exceeded China for the first time since 2015.

Although the coronavirus pandemic hurt all car sales, including EVs, which fell 15% globally in the second quarter, the market for electric vehicles is

This Is The New Transport Trend Sweeping Europe

Before the pandemic, the number of cycle lanes and on-demand bike share schemes were rocketing across Europe. Shared public transport–scooters, bikes, cars–worked on the assumption that people in modern cities wanted to jump on whatever transport was available nearby, using an application, and leave them at stations or spaces when finished.

But there is a new trend, fuelled by Covid-19 and the rise in popularity of e-bikes; in a pandemic, people don’t want to rub shoulders with anyone else, they don’t want to share transport with people they don’t know and they need to not be sweaty or out of breath when they arrive at their destination.

Now, as countries clear roads for cycle lanes, and investors pour money into new European transport, it seems the public is ready for a new transport model for cycling–that of longer-term bike

It was an appeal for help from a hospital at the epicenter of the outbreak in northern Italy. Its administrators direly needed faster internet connections and computers to deal with the flood of patients. Capitanio — who sits on parliament’s telecommunications committee — called the country’s phone companies to help out.

To Capitanio, the pandemic was a wake-up call to fix Italy’s creaking internet. Now Conte has stepped in with a plan to kick-start investment by merging the country’s two biggest landline networks.

“Some families still don’t own a computer,” said Capitanio. “The government has been forced to step in and tackle this social emergency.”

Europe’s internet infrastructure is riddled with gaps and bottlenecks, exposed over the past seven months

Over the long term, the goal is to turn forest management into a profitable activity that can also revive rural economies.

A Bet on Europe Is a Bet on Drugs, Against Tech

The skew toward tech giants in the U.S. stock market is well known. Less appreciated is that Europe’s markets are now dominated by drugmakers.

Healthcare accounts for a quarter of the Stoxx Europe 50 index—almost as much as the almost 28% represented by information technology in the S&P 500. Five of Europe’s top 10 companies by market value are now drug producers:

Novartis,

Roche,

AstraZeneca,

Sanofi

and Denmark’s

Novo Nordisk.

This trend isn’t new, but it has been turbocharged by this year’s pandemic-driven downturn, which has highlighted the social relevance of the drug industry as well as its typically recession-proof profit profile. A vaccine AstraZeneca has licensed from the University of Oxford is a front-runner in the battle against Covid-19.

The rise of health care is one result to emerge from an analysis of Europe’s largest companies and how they have shifted over the past decade and
