The European Automotive Noise Conference
The worldwide economical and geo-political developments in the last decennium, including the breakout of the COVID pandemic, have made clear that a change of course has become absolute priority. In order to assure stable and sustainable long-term growth, the new political strategies must be inclusive in the sense that they must reconcile economic, environmental and social goals.
A green circular economy that includes the eco-system and human well-being is also the focus of the European Commission for the coming years, a vision that is shared by VIRTUAL VEHICLE and reflected by the adapted structure of our research areas. The reduction of noise pollution due to ground transportation in urban environments, the development of competitive acoustical materials which are compatible with the recycling needs and the development of technologies which can assure better access and integration of all groups of the population to the new technologies are examples of the tasks awaiting the NVH community.
All these topics and more will be central at our upcoming congress.
