A total of 20 British companies will be attending the Japanese Society of Automotive Engineers 2016 Annual Congress in Pacifico, Yokohama, on Wednesday 25 May to Friday 27 May. The UK companies will showcase the best of British on the UK Pavilion, with the aim to attract inward investment into the UK, trade with Japanese OEMs and form collaborative partnerships with Japanese R&D organisations.
The UK Pavilion will also include some of the UK’s key support organisations such as The Advanced Propulsion Centre, Innovate UK, Niche Vehicle Network, North East Automotive Alliance, and MAKE it Sunderland. A range of exciting UK companies will also form the UK Pavilion.
The UK has a half day seminar within the JSAE Technical Congress entitled “Innovation in the UK.” This will give the chance for 9 of the UK companies attending JSAE to explain their technologies and why the UK is a thriving place to develop low carbon technology. The Advanced Propulsion Centre, Innovate UK, Magnomatics, Hyperdrive, Johnson Mattthey Battery Systems, McLaren Applied Technologies, Avid Technology Ltd, Niche Vehicle Network and Saietta will all present at the Forum.
