CLEPA Innovation Awards 2018: Innovation in the Automotive Supply Industry
The CLEPA Innovation Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in the European automotive supply industry in the fields of Environment, Safety, Connectivity and Automation and Cooperation.
Innovation is key to shaping the mobility of the future, and the main trends of digitalisation and sustainability are transforming the automotive industry as well as the vehicle population on the roads.
The automotive parts suppliers are active right at the forefront of developments.
CLEPA (the European Association of Automotive Suppliers) represents over 3000 companies supplying state-of-the art technology solutions, as well as more than 20 national trade associations and European sector associations. The industry invests over 20 billion euro year on year in research & development to make road transport cleaner, safer and more efficient, as well as connected, cooperative, automated and thus more ‘smart’.
Selected by a distinguished jury of international experts, these innovations scored highest marks in terms of ambition, market relevance, impact and quality of their innovation.
For the first time, a special prize was awarded in each category to SMEs, acknowledging the important contribution of small and mid-sized companies to the industry’s resourcefulness, ingenuity and competitiveness.
CLEPA thanks the Innovation Awards partner Deloitte, Dutch member RAI which supported the Awards Gala, the members of the jury, and all entrants for taking part in this journey.
