Event description
This two days conference will gather academia, researchers and professionals of the automotive cluster.

About this Event

The auto industry is facing tremendous challenges, not only brought by the crescent rise of electric powertrains and massive use of driving assisting systems progressing towards autonomous driving systems, but also in the factory floor, by the upcoming fourth industrial revolution (“Industrie 4.0”), the impact of digital technology on the value chain, and disruptive technologies such as 3D printing.

The two-days conference will explore these challenges bringing together car and car-part manufacturers, universities and research institutions, to sharing knowledge, discovering solutions and building relationships within the automotive cluster.

The program is organized in four thematic sessions, structured around four keynote presentations given by national and international experts from the industry and the scientific community, who will bring the state of the art in the diverse aspects related with the future of car industry, advanced materials and manufacturing processes and paradigms of mobility, including environmental concerns.

A space will be provided, around the technical sessions, for all those wanting to exhibit their most recent findings or to demonstrate innovative projects.

During the event we will give visibility, in the exhibition space, to the diverse projects carried out by the students and their sponsors as contributors for the academic formation, in the context of innovative learning methodologies.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION
