Supporting the driver in conserving energy and reducing emissions

2013 EUCAR Reception and Conference

- Brussels, Belgium


EUCAR, the European Council for automotive R&D, organised the Conference “Ready for Horizon 2020! The strategic pillars of automotive research & innovation” at the Autoworld in Brussels.

At the Conference, after an introduction from the EUCAR Chairman, three sessions focused on the EUCAR Strategic Pillars: “Safe & Integrated Mobility”; “Sustainable Propulsion”; and “Affordability & Competitiveness”. Each Pillar was illustrated by an overview of the challenges and opportunities from a EUCAR Council member, presentation of a key R&I project, followed by discussion of the future framework and strategies for research with senior policymakers and stakeholders in European R&I. These were followed by a panel discussion on Horizon 2020.  

The draft programme can be downloaded here.

Samantha Jamson, presented the ecoDriver project in the morning session of the conference on 6 November under the theme "Strategic Pillar Safe & Integrated Mobility". Dr Jamson presentation can be found here.
