FISITA, the international organisation for the automotive mobility engineering profession, is to establish an exclusive Industry Committee that will comprise of corporate members from FISITA’s Honorary Committee.
Now in its twentieth year, the FISITA Honorary Committee is a select group of industry leaders from the world’s top automakers, suppliers and technology providers. The work of the Industry Committee will drive collaboration among FISITA’s Honorary Committee community and support the global automotive industry in its transition to the mobility sector.
FISITA CEO Chris Mason said: “The FISITA Honorary Committee is an incredibly well connected group, with influential leadership, a mass of expertise in many different areas and a global footprint like no other group of technologists as far as we can see.
“The members of our new Industry Committee will therefore be very well placed to collaborate and develop initiatives and processes to support the development of mobility solutions for today and the future.”
The Industry Committee will set its own objectives, however there are two projects to which the group will provide immediate support:
A project being developed with the FISITA Academic Advisory Board (AAB) to evaluate the skill profile and technical need of industry via creation of a ‘skills map’ stretching out 5, 10 and 20 years. This project requires the input of industry and further development collaboration between the Industry Committee and AAB.
Work Experience Project
Supporting the development of FISITA’s Inspire to Aspire, international marketing campaign, geared at creating an international pipeline of young engineering talent from academia through to FISITA Honorary Committee members.
