CLEPA, the European Association of Automotive Suppliers, has opened the application period for the Innovation Awards 2020. In its 5th edition, organised in cooperation with Deloitte, this initiative is a prime competition in the automotive supply industry, celebrating outstanding achievements of mobility technology in the fields of Environment, Cooperation, Safety and Connectivity & Automation.

The automotive supply industry has a key role as a major innovation force in the mobility ecosystem. European automotive suppliers invest more than 25€ billion in R&D each year, contributing to new technologies and systems for an ever-higher performance in terms of safety, sustainability, connectivity, automation and seamless mobility. Innovation forms the backbone of the competitiveness of the European industry, and automotive suppliers are committed to remain global leaders in the  development of advanced mobility technologies, services and solutions that meet new societal challenges.

The CLEPA Innovation Awards celebrate the commitment towards making the future of mobility safer, smarter and more sustainable, as well as put the focus on the essential cooperation between companies and organisations in order to deliver these advancements.

Underlining the diversity and variety in the sector, this contest is now open to all companies–including SMEs and startups–, research centres, educational institutions, other organisations and stakeholders participating in the development of mobility technology.

Following the example of previous years, the Innovation Awards also contain a special prize for SMEs in each category, to acknowledge the role of small and mid-sized companies in the industry’s achievements.

Applications will be examined by a jury of international experts assessing the ambition, market relevance, impact and quality of the innovations submitted.

The winners will be announced during the CLEPA Innovation Awards ceremony on the 25th of November, which will take place in Brussels.

The deadline for applications is the 15th of June 2020.
