Next week is a big week for dbyhundred. In our contract with Productiv we are facilitating events that will boost the Innovation capability of the UK in Low Carbon automotive technologies.
We’ve put together a great programme specifically designed to get the network of large and small businesses properly interconnected.
On Tuesday 23rd it’s “Meet the Engineer” (MtE); a large industry event for which I’ve planned Pecha Kuchas and Speed dating to break down the barriers (see the Press Release Below). Who’s taking part? Jaguar, Toyota, Nissan, Ford, Williams, Lotus, Morgan plus more than 50 other auto manufacturers and key suppliers… and some highly innovative technologists!
Then on Wednesday 24th the select members of Productiv’s Radar Club will convene to build on the MtE stimulus and new Sensor and Big Data technologies. We’ll be working out what all this means in our industry and help our members make the right investments in Low Carbon technologies. Guests include IBM, Plessey and McLaren (of F1 fame) and a host of sensor tech companies.
NEWS FROM MILLBROOK PROVING GROUND
MILLBROOK PROVING GROUND HOSTS MEET THE ENGINEER EVENT
Millbrook Proving Ground are hosting the third annual ‘Meet the Engineer’ on 23 April on behalf of the joint Government and industry body, the Automotive Council UK. Developing a stronger and more competitive supply chain is one of the Automotive Council’s key priorities.
Following the success of last year’s event, which saw over 30 technology development companies represented and more than 100 requests for follow ups made by vehicle manufacturers and other large companies in the automotive supply chain.
The ‘Meet the Engineer’ day will see technology developers present opportunities for development, investment and involvement in the latest low carbon automotive technologies, and hopes to encourage interaction and collaboration between engineers of large companies and small UK-based technology development companies.
Presentations will be grouped under the Automotive Council’s strategic technologies, which include ‘Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) Efficiency’, ‘Energy Storage & Management’, ‘Electric Machines & Power Electronics’ and ‘Lightweight Materials & Structures’.
The feedback from last year’s event was very positive and the event led to a number of collaborations and advancements. Engineers from several UK automotive companies will be among the 60 OEMs, engineers and influencers attending ‘Meet the Engineer’. Technology developers will have the perfect opportunity to promote their innovative technologies to the automotive engineering industry.
Productiv, a business dedicated to industrialising Low Carbon technologies, is facilitating this innovative event to optimise networking opportunities between technologists and the established automotive manufacturers and suppliers.
Peter Stoker, group head of vehicle engineering at Millbrook Proving Ground explains: “As the UK’s leading location for the testing and development of low carbon vehicles, working with many vehicle manufacturers across a variety of markets, from motorcycles and passenger cars to buses and trucks, Millbrook is the ideal location to hold this year’s ‘Meet the Engineer’ event.”
“We are looking forward to welcoming engineers and technology companies on site at Millbrook for another successful event organised and held by the Automotive Council.”
