ACEM 2015 Annual Conference


L-category vehicles? Today’s smart choice for the future

acem-conference-2015-250ACEM’s annual conference will take place on 24 September 2015 at the Renaissance Hotel, 19, Rue du Parnasse, Brussels.

The conference, which will run from 12:30 to 17:00, will be split in two sessions.

The place of L-category vehicles in the European Union

The first session will set the scene of the conference. Policy-makers, industry representatives and key stakeholders will exchange views on three main areas of importance to the L-category vehicle industry (i.e. powered-two and three wheelers, and quadricycles).

  • Current European transport policy and the revision of the White Paper on Transport
  • Recent economic developments and trends in the sector
  • The impact of legislation on the European L-category vehicle market

The panel debate will be followed by a Q&A session with attendees and the press.

Unlocking the potential of innovation for L-category vehicles

The second session will specifically look at how European research policy can support companies to develop innovative and advanced vehicles and technologies for the transport of the future.

This part of the conference will feature thought-provoking presentations from leading industry experts on ongoing research projects funded by the EU through the European Green Vehicles Initiative (2014-2020).
