Automotive professionals in the Grande region will meet up in Luxembourg on the 7th of June for Automotive Day 2018.
Organized by the Luxembourg Automobility Cluster, managed by Luxinnovation, with the support of the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) network, and in partnership with Autoregion, the Grande region cluster and Goodyear, the theme for this year’s event is centralizing transport digitization. The activities will put a focus on e-transport, user experience, and intelligent production.
Across technical conferences, technology expositions, and roadway tests, industry experts in the Grande region will exchange ideas and tips gained through experience. The interaction between these parties will create a better understanding of how Luxembourgish and Grande region car companies and research institutes can attack the challenges associated with the numeric revolution.
“The gathering will also provide sessions to enrich B2B discussions with regards to the Grande region writ large, with the support of the EEN network.”
“By bringing together these participants to Luxembourg City, where the first part of the event will take place before heading to the Goodyear test track in Colmar-Berg, we also want to show that Luxembourg is at the head of green efforts in the public transportation field,” signaled Anthony Auert, manager of Luxembourg AutoMobility Cluster and coordinator of the 2018 edition. Transportation between the two will take place elsewhere in electric hybrid buses provided by the transport company Sales-Lentz.
Targeted B2B Meetups
“The gathering will also provide sessions to enrich B2B discussions with regards to the Grande region writ large, with the support of the EEN network,” added François Delé, president of Luxembourg AutoMobility Cluster. “This will allow our members to build their networks and professional ties, as well as find new technologies and new commercial partners on the backdrop of the targeted, individualized exchanges.”
“The Luxembourgish companies have expressed an interest in reinforcing links with the automobile industry in Wallonia.”
“Our number one goal for this year’s Automative Day is to facilitate the exchange of contacts and to set up new collaborations,” said Anthony Auert. “The Luxembourgish companies have expressed an interest in reinforcing links with the automobile industry in Wallonia. We have also invited Agora to present on the transformation of the Belgian automobile sector.”
The Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Economy Étienne Schneider will kick of the day with a special speech and will take stock of the cross-border project, which will connect transport authorities to cooperate on automated and connected driving between Luxembourg, France, and Germany.
