Hosting a delegation: Dutch organizations visit the Powertrain ecosystem

June 22, 2023

Connecting members, exchanging best practices and providing them with international support: these are just some of NextMove's ambitions, and a range of actions are proposed to cluster members to achieve them. On this occasion, we had the opportunity to present the Powertrain ecosystem of our territories to a delegation from the Netherlands interested in the topic.

Following on from the strong partnership between NextMove and the RAI Automotive Industry NL, a Dutch delegation was organized for a second edition from June 13 to 15, 2023. Once again, the theme was Powertrain, and the event was held in the Paris Region.

Over the three days of the program, RAI member organizations were able to visit sites, take part in events and exchange ideas, with the aim of enabling participants to discover the Powertrain ecosystem and forge links with members of the NextMove network to identify potential areas for collaboration.


On the first day, the delegation had the opportunity to visit the AVL LMM site in Palaiseau, with a presentation of the test plant.

The second day took place at the SIA Powertrain fair in Port-Marly. It was an opportunity for the group to meet and exchange ideas with NextMove members such as Vitesco and the CEA.


The day was punctuated by a presentation of the NextCar, a collaborative demonstrator of NextMove innovations.


The program finally came to a close with two further presentations and visits hosted by Valeo and UTAC le troisième jour.


Enriching exchanges and great potential for collaboration, all fueled by curiosity and the desire to share the experiences of the various participating organizations. Similar opportunities will be offered to NextMove members throughout the year, don't hesitate to contact us with your interests!

Many thanks again to all participants!
