REPRESENTATIVES OF MIT MEET AT CENER WITH AGENTS FROM THE NAVARRE SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY GROUP

Representantes del MIT se reunen en CENER con los agentes de la Mesa de Movilidad Sostenible de Navarra

The purpose of this Working Group, part of the Third Navarre Technology Plan and made up of ANAIN, CITEAN, CENER, UPNA and UN-CEIT, is to detect possible business opportunities in relation to electric vehicles.

Kent Larson and Ryan Chin, from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology – MIT in Boston (USA), met today at the National Centre for Renewable Energies (CENER) in Sarriguren with members of the SIMSIG project (Integrated Sustainable Mobility Systems with Global Impact).

At the meeting, they talked about the objectives, business model, and current and future activities of the SIMSIG project, and reflected on the possibilities for collaboration between SIMSIG and MIT, which include the possibility of organising training courses for people affiliated with the SIMSIG project.

Initially, a senior industrial engineer from Navarre will be taking part in an internationally renowned specific training programme about comprehensive sustainable mobility delivered by MIT, so that, when he returns to Navarre, and over a period of two years, he can collaborate in designing specifications for industrial development in terms of systems, products and integration.

Both this individual and those who join SIMSIG in the future will develop their activities in one or several of the Technology Centres affiliated to the project: CENER (if the specifications are more to do with the production and distribution of energy) or CITEAN (if the business opportunities are more closely linked with the vehicle). However, research activity could well be required in the future in certain areas, so the location of the activities carried out might well fit in better in the university setting of the working group.

The aim is for the people involved in the SIMSIG project to ‘learn by doing’, gaining knowledge of the key aspects related with sustainable mobility, developing high potential contacts within different projects and networks that are already up and running, and facilitate contacts between SIMSIG agents and important figures from MIT.

Since last March, CENER, CITEAN, ANAIN, UPNA and the University of Navarre-CEIT have been working together, with the collaboration of the consultancy firm Davalor, around a particular strategic vision within the general and international scope of sustainable mobility. This working group, which will gradually incorporate industrial companies, came about through meetings of the Sustainable Vehicle Group working on the MODERNA plan.
