Bent u actief in de automotive-industrie? En wilt u weten wat de ontwikkelingen zijn in Noord-Frankrijk op het gebied van schone en slimme voertuigen? Ga dan mee met de innovatiemissie voor de automotive-industrie in de Hauts-de-France regio van 14 t/m 16 september 2022.

Voor wie?

De missie richt zich met name op R&D managers, business development managers, CTO's en CEO's van geïnteresseerde bedrijven (mkb en grote bedrijven) en kennisinstellingen.

Waarom Noord-Frankrijk?

De regio Hauts-de-France in Noord-Frankrijk, op 2 uur rijden van Eindhoven, is de regio waar de meeste auto’s geproduceerd worden van Frankrijk. Met 3 originele onderdelenfabrikanten Renault, Stellantis en Toyota, op 7 productiesites vormt de regio hét centrum van de automotive-industrie.  Ook staat er de bouw van 3 batterijen-gigafactories gepland door de consortia Verkor met onder andere Renault en Plastic Omnium, ACC (Stellantis , SAFT en TotalEnergies) en Envision, AESC en Renault. Verder bezit de regio een rijk ecosysteem aan onderzoek-, test- en pilotcentra rond elektrificatie, batterijen en slimme voertuigen.

Hoofdthema's missie

Deze innovatiemissie richt zich op nieuwe technologieën in de automotive-industrie. De hoofdthema's van de missie zijn:

  • slimme voertuigen, zowel coöperatief als autonoom (exclusief infotainment en Mobility-as-a-Service);
  • schone voertuigen, met name gericht op aandrijftechnologie (zoals batterijen en power electronica) en lichtgewicht materialen;
  • batterijen (onder andere productie, recycling, testen, smart charging);
  • productietechnologie / manufacturing;
  • circular economy.

Programma opzet

Tijdens deze missie worden diverse bedrijven, kennisinstellingen en testcentra bezocht. Het conceptprogramma bestaat uit:

  • een bezoek aan een OEM-fabriek in de regio;
  • de Transalley Campus in Valenciennes met test- en demofaciliteiten;
  • een innovatief kennisinstiuut in de regio;
  • kennismaking met één van de consortia achter de batterijen-gigafactory projecten;
  • pitchen en matchmaking.

De komende periode zullen wij nader invulling geven aan het programma.
Hierbij houden wij rekening met specifieke wensen van de deelnemers.


Programma Details 

Een bezoek zal gebracht worden aan deze organisaties o.a. en aan een OEM:
CRITT M2A  (62700 Bruay-la-buissière)

Partner for the energy transition, CRITT M2A is an independent research center set on over 10.000 sqm, considered as a major player in testing and R&D.

For more than 20  years, CRITT M2A has offered its know-how to mobility players through high-tech test means. At the heart of optimizing energy management, the skills of CRITT M2A are organized into 4 major activities :

From its early years, CRITT M2A has been recognized for its engine testing and vibroacoustic testing activities. In 2009, it offered international visibility with its turbocharger testing center and thus completed its service offering to meet the needs of automobile manufacturers.

At the cutting edge of the latest technologies, CRITT M2A anticipates the energy transition and develops new skills in the electrification of vehicles. Since 2014, it has invested nearly € 20 million to support its clients in their developments around the management of energy storage or the electric powertrain. In 2015, it opened its battery testing center for electric and hybrid vehicles.

CRITT M2A's services now range from battery testing to their approval for marketing. Today, CRITT M2A has become a major player in electric mobility and continues to accelerate by consolidating its development in battery testing with new projects and investments (abuse test bench, battery recycling, training, etc.)

Concerning the Powertrain testing departement, CRITT M2A is now working on optimizing the overall powertrain thanks to its multimachine test bench, which is unique in Europe in terms of its power, which makes it possible to test an entire vehicle, whatever its engine, electric or hybrid.

On the strength of its R&D activity, CRITT M2A has developed solid skills recognized in France and internationally, as well as numerous excellent public and academic partnerships.

In a rapidly changing sector, the CRITT M2A brings its R&D brick to an ever more efficient, economical and ecological car.
