EuroBrake 2023 programme preview

This year's EuroBrake will be discussing the key topics for the braking industry.

The 2023 Strategy Panel will be discussing the "Effects of the EU7 regulation on brake system development and homologation".

Below are just some of the technical presentations that will feature in EuroBrake 2023. The full programme will be launched over the next few weeks.
