ECA2030 – Electric, Connected and Automated Mobility for the 2030 customer
Research Priorities and Accelerators for Electric, Connected and Automated Mobility
Increasing levels of vehicle electrification and automation engender fundamental changes along the entire automotive value chain that require both a continuous prioritization of technical research topics and extensive networking between a progressively diverse stakeholder group. Thus the Mobility.E Lighthouse, a networking and collaboration platform of the ECSEL JU serves to connect stakeholders along and beyond the automotive value chain, bringing together the Electronic Components and Systems (ECS) and application side as well as non-technical experts to ensure European competitiveness for ECA mobility and to meet the demands of the 2030 customer.
The COSMOS project supports the Mobility.E Lighthouse with the continuous identification and prioritisation of technical and non-technical research topics within a strategy development process. Within a first step, research activities and strategies have been mapped to define the ECA mobility ecosystem and the corresponding R&D&I gaps have been analysed. Building upon these results, research priorities have been discussed and need to be further interactively validated and revised with experts of the field to finally derive an implementation plan, containing concrete actions to accelerate the implementation of ECA mobility solutions and to provide input to (updates of) European ECA strategies.
For this purpose, we invite all technical and non-technical ECA stakeholders to actively participate in the strategy development at the upcoming ECA2030 event and to shape the implementation of ECA mobility with your expertise.
This years’ program of the ECA 2030 will include keynotes from policy makers as well as stakeholders along the complete automotive value chain and non-technical experts. Furthermore, the event will comprise an interactive session on the ECA implementation plan.
