  • Provide solutions for safe, smart and sustainable mobility

Roberto Vavassori, CLEPA President, said: “The EU needs to maintain a world-class car industry, producing the safest, smartest and most sustainable vehicles globally and providing high-skilled jobs to millions. Our partnership with FISITA underlines our shared passion for future mobility solutions and enables us to connect, network, share technological advancements and collaborate in a pre-competitive environment.”

Kelly Williams, Director of Member Services at FISITA, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with CLEPA. Supporting research, innovation and development in the automotive and mobility sector is central to the FISITA mission: ‘promoting excellence in mobility engineering’.  We anticipate that this partnership will prove to be a valuable resource as we continue to develop initiatives such as the FISITA Roadmap to 2020, Engineer 2030 and the FISITA Eco-System mapping project.”
