On 7 July 2020, companies and research institutes from the mobility cluster Electric Mobility South-West and the French partner cluster Mov'eo (Île-de-France and Normandy) took the opportunity to network internationally.
The innovation cluster Electric Mobility South-West, coordinated by e-mobil BW, and the French partner cluster Mov'eo, which have been in close exchange for years, offered the approximately twenty participants from both countries a virtual pitch event on the three topics of Electronic components for vehicles and their production, Power electronics and Autonomous and connected driving in cross-border traffic.
After the presentation of the organising cluster associations and relevant funding opportunities for future joint projects, the participating companies and research institutes from Baden-Württemberg and France had the opportunity to present their organisation and exchange ideas with innovative players from the Automotive Cluster with regard to joint project initiatives.
The online pitch session is part of a long-term exchange between the innovation networks on future mobility solutions in France (Île-de-France, Normandy) and Baden-Württemberg. A follow-up pitch session is planned to present concrete joint project initiatives. A Franco-German expert panel will provide the consortia with advice and support. The date for this follow-up session will be announced.
