The recently opened £150m National Automotive Innovation Centre, located at Warwick University, is the largest automotive research and development facility in Europe and is a long-term partnership between Jaguar Land Rover, TATA and the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG).
The striking, all-encompassing centre is a beacon for automotive design and research, housing state-of-the-art facilities that develop future vehicle technologies and mobility solutions.
The research centre brings together academics, engineers and designers to innovate through collaborative research projects.
MIA members are invited to join us for a one-day Motorsport Showcase of Innovative Capability, where you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your latest technology innovations and solutions to the 1,000 engineers, academics and technicians onsite.
Jaguar Land Rover
Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. Jaguar’s Formula E programme will create tangible R&D benefits for the electrification of future Jaguar and Land Rover road cars and is real world test bed for innovative technologies. In 2018 Jaguar Racing launched the world’s first all-electric international series for production-based car – the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY – the official support series to Formula E. In 2019 Jaguar Racing will compete in season six of Formula E which promises to be the most competitive season ever against eleven teams racing from November to July across the globe. At ten races they will be joined by up to 20 Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY racecars based on the 2019 World Car of The Year – the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE.
Jaguar Land Rover has a mix of products, including extreme performance and extreme off-road as well as more conventional vehicles.
Motorsport technologies and delivery processes could become more and more relevant to JLR.
This event is an opportunity for the two communities to meet an understand where this would and would not work.
WMG is an academic department of the University of Warwick, with a particular focus on delivering research with direct industrial impact. The group specialises in electrified powertrains, lightweight structures, connected and autonomous vehicles, digital manufacturing and business transformation.
With hundreds of staff from industrial collaborators located on campus, WMG works directly with industrial organisations to deliver technology and business solutions straight to market. Facilities include full scale prototype manufacturing capability for battery cells, modules and packs, and for vehicle scale composite components, as well as state-of-the-art additive manufacturing and metrology.
Includes 2m x 1m showcase area with trestle table for display and entrance, lunch refreshments for 2 delegates.
