In the conference “FUTURE TRENDS IN THE MOTORSPORT SECTOR: technologies, materials and innovation”, analysts and experts from the sector will address the issues related to the transformation of racing in the short and medium term. During the morning, several speakers will discuss the evolution of different engines, the growth of electric power, innovative materials and the digitisation of production processes. The issues addressed will be approached from different points of view: from the manufacturers of chassis, single-seaters and components to the major car manufacturers, who are becoming increasingly more involved in sports competitions.

In the afternoon there will be a focus on “TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND BUSINESS – New business models for high-technology sectors”. During the conference, speakers will highlight the role that technologies (developed by the motorsport industry) can play in fostering the growth of other industrial sectors. An aspect that, for many analysts, may encourage a diversification of the business by companies in the sector. In this sense, short case studies of companies already operating in this field of activity will be explored in depth. Furthermore, ample space will also be given to representatives of Technology Clusters who can be at the service of companies wishing to follow this path.

Participation in the event is free. Full details and the registration form are available at
