ECA2030 Conference Announcement 2019


ECA2030 – Networking and Collaboration to strengthen the ECAD ecosystem

Join a vibrant discussion on urgent research priorities for electric, connected, automated driving (ECAD) at the interface of the automotive and ECS sectors and get in contact with the right people to solve current and future implementation challenges.

Increasing levels of vehicle electrification and automation engender fundamental changes along the entire automotive value chain that require both a continuous prioritisation of technical research topics and extensive networking between a progressively diverse stakeholder group. TheMobility.E Lighthouse of the ECSEL JU is the networking and collaboration platform to connect stakeholders along and beyond the automotive value chain, bringing together the ECS and application sides as well as non-technical experts to ensure European competitiveness in the ECAD field and meet the demands of the 2030 customer.

The ECA2030 Networking Event therefore aims to:

1. Strengthen the European ECAD ecosystem:

The ECA2030 networking event will bring together public authorities and both industrial and academic stakeholders covering the entire automotive value chain from components to vehicles and mobility solutions and will serve to align strategical and R&D perspectives.

2. Prioritise research topics:

The identification of burning research topics will guide future R&D activities and accelerate progress toward the realisation of future mobility visions.
