The automotive sector is experiencing unprecedented levels of change.

This event offers presentations from leading industry experts on future trends in the automotive sector and how SMEs can position themselves within emerging supply chains.
Nissan UK have been pioneers in the electric vehicle market with the Nissan LEAF, Europe’s bestselling EV, manufactured at its Sunderland plant. Nissan will give a keynote speech outlining their vision that “the future car will be electric and autonomous” and will present detail of their investment plans for electric vehicles, vehicle-to-grid and domestic energy storage products.
The Transport Systems Catapult and the Advanced Propulsion Centre will present their work on the future transport technology revolution and emerging supply chains in both ‘hardware’ manufacture and diverse areas such as electric vehicle infrastructure, system software design, infotainment, data analytics, cyber security etc.
The event will showcase the LEVEL project recently established to promote skills training, knowledge transfer and business networking in the low emission vehicle sector. Details will be presented on the project's aims and its upcoming local event programme.
