Research & Innovation

The European automotive manufacturers, EUCAR’s members, invest over €60bn per year in research and development in order to meet consumer demands, address societal challenges such as environmental protection and safety, and to secure European manufacturing competitiveness. These investments are made in a highly competitive commercial landscape.

Additionally, it is necessary for European manufacturers to collaborate in the pre-competitive research and innovation domain in order to pool resources and extract synergies, thereby leveraging additional value from their resources. This is where EUCAR acts as a platform for our members, to identify and share common priorities and to secure and participate in collaborative research and innovation projects.
