The road to 2040: Driving Franco-British collaboration


Delivering the technology & supply chain for ULEVs

The UK and France have made an ambitious commitment to withdraw diesel and petrol fueled cars by 2040 and make the shift to Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs). How do we drive towards 2040; what are the research, regulation, business and policy challenges we need to address along the road? This event is an opportunity, through a programme of panel discussions, break-out groups and networking activities, for French and UK actors in the ULEV sector – government, academia and business – to share best practice, discuss the challenges and identify areas for collaboration.

The objective of this event is to bring together the key actors in this area in France and the UK, with a view to encouraging commercial and research partnerships and identify ways we can collaborate to address the challenges going forward.
