[Webinar 1st February] Smart Mobility 4 Autonomous Driving Going International

The INTonomous project and the opportunities for European SMEs

SMEs engaged in the autonomous driving challenge are now working on multiple fronts. From solutions to improve the quality of driving such as cruise control, on-board radar and lane assist, to driver monitoring, human-machine interface, Vehicle-Driver and Vehicle-Environment interactions, V2V, V2X.

But what do companies need to successfully approach international markets outside the EU?

Why is it so important to be part of a European network created for this new sector?

What are the tools available to SMEs and startups?

The meeting will present the opportunities of the INTonomous project and will officially launch the International Call for SMEs interested to participate in a qualified path of acceleration and internationalization towards Canada/USA. The INTonomous project is co-funded by COSME programme of the European Union.
