  Invitation: GO4SEM Webinar

  GO4SEM "Global Opportunities for SMEs in Electro - Mobility "

  Join us for a webinar on June 30, 2015 from 14:00 to 15:00

E-mobility technologies are key for European companies to compete successfully in fast evolving markets such as USA, South Korea, Japan and in the emerging markets including India, Brazil and China.

Promising markets for electric vehicles are evolving and many more emerging. This development provides opportunities for European Tier1s and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in global EV supply chains, especially since electric mobility requiring new technologies, services and business models changes the traditional automotive supply chain and opens it for new players.


EPE's 15 ECCE Europe, 8-10 September 2015 - Geneva, Switzerland Published:22.06.2015  

It is our pleasure to announce that the 17th Conference on Power Electronics and Applications,

EPE’15-ECCE Europe, will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from the 8th to 10th September 2015.

The conference follows previous successful conferences held in major university cities across Europe since 1985: Brussels, Grenoble, Aachen, Florence, Brighton, Seville, Trondheim, Lausanne, Graz, Toulouse, Dresden, Aalborg, Barcelona, Birmingham, Lille and Lappeenranta.

Geneva is an ideally located city in the centre of Europe, easily reachable by air, rail or road. It is close to both the Swiss and French Alps and lies at the end of the beautiful Lake Léman.

Besides its exceptional international nature, due to the numerous humanitarian and political organizations, Geneva is world famous for particle physics. The year 2012 was marked by one of the most significant events in this field: the experimental discovery of the Higgs Boson at CERN. Subsequently, the Nobel Prize in Physics 2013 was awarded jointly to François Englert and Peter W. Higgs. Their theoretical discovery of a mechanism for the origin of mass of subatomic particles was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The EPE’15 ECCE Europe conference will be hosted by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. Founded in 1954, laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 21 member states. At CERN, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter. Protons and lead ions are collided at close to the speed of light, giving the physicists clues about how the particles interact and providing insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Particle physicists and their accelerators have for decades required the design, development, construction, control and operation of high precision power converters.

Letter to EU-commissioners calls for focus on the transport sector Published:07.02.2015  
AVERE co-signs letter to urge the Commissioners for focus on the transport sector, which represents about a third of the EU’s overall energy consumption and is almost exclusively dependent on imported fossil fuels. The letter was sent by Transport & Environment and co-signed by Avere, Eurelectric, Polis, UITP, CER, Eurobat & EPIA.

 The World Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition (EVS) is one of the oldest world-wide symposiums. Since 1969, the EVS series has been held every 12-18 months rotating among North America, Europe and Asia. With a history spanning 5 decades, the EVS symposium has become the utmost academic forum for sharing experience and global networking. As electric drive technologies have progressed from the classroom and laboratories into the market place, the EVS exhibition has become the core program of the EVS symposium and premier showcase for all forms of technologies. Today, as the most highly acclaimed symposium in its field, the EVS28 is planning to attract academic, government and industry leaders from around the world interested in exploring and understanding the technical, policy and market challenges to the paradigm shift toward the use of electric transportation technologies.
