Faurecia says it has formed a Scientific Council to strengthen its ability to understand, analyse and anticipate new technology applications.

The Council is composed of high-level representatives of scientific institutions such as the Collège de France, the CNRS (French National Research Centre) and the CEA (Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission).

The work of its members is to provide a global and comprehensive overview on technology and science developments, propose new areas for investigation, make global assessments and define different scenarios to help in technology deployment.

Scientific Council members include: Marc Fontecave, Professeur at the Collège de France and president of Collège de France Foundation, Yves Samson, scientific director at CEA Tech, Jean-Luc Moullet, chief innovation officer at CNRS, Eric Moulines, Professor at Ecole Polytechnique, alongside Christophe Aufrère, Faurecia’s Group CTO and Patrick Koller, CEO.

“Faurecia is working with an increasing number of new and emerging technologies with huge potential,” said Aufrère.

“Teaming up with experts from these prestigious institutions will allow us to master and integrate new technologies to support our Cockpit of the Future and Sustainable Mobility pillars.”
