FISITA’s ESOP initiative supports 50 international students at EuroBrake 2021

  • ESOP, the EuroBrake Student Opportunities Programme, returns to EuroBrake 2021 in a virtual capacity

  • 50 international students invited to participate in student sessions alongside main EuroBrake 2021 sessions

  • Support the initiative by sponsoring ESOP

  • EuroBrake runs from 17-21 May 2021

As part of its commitment to supporting the next generation of mobility engineers and lifelong learning for all, FISITA delivers a Student Opportunities Programme at each of its events throughout the year, and EuroBrake is no exception. The EuroBrake Student Opportunities Programme (“ESOP”) invites 50 students worldwide from a range of disciplines, from 35 universities, to join dedicated student sessions throughout the week of the EuroBrake conference. As well as Introductory and Q&A Sessions, Round Table and Surgery Sessions, the invited students receive CV and career advice, and more.

ESOP 2021 will once again offer students with a passion for mobility the unique chance to network with and learn from international braking experts in industry and academia, as well as their peers. Along with the ESOP sessions, students will have full delegate access to all EuroBrake 2021.

FISITA is grateful to the ESOP Working Group members from Audi, ZF, Continental, Volkswagen, IDIADA, University of Leeds, TU Braunschweig and the EuroBrake Steering Committee for their support with the ESOP initiative. In addition, we thank braking experts from Brembo, Bosch Chassis Systems Control, and Link Engineering, along with Dr Martin Haigh from Lattitude7 who will join and lead ESOP sessions.

Registration is open - for just £200 a full delegate ticket can be purchased; this includes access to over 425 technical papers from 2021-2020.
