Invecpro – Research for a new generation of professional electric vehicle.

Project Description:

The INVECPRO project (Industrial and transversal research for a new generation of high added value professional VEC), brings together a group of 14 entities of high international and national prestige , headed by Fagor Electrónica, and supported by 3 national Technology Centers, to promote Industrial Research in Cooperation and high added value. It has an budget of 14.9 Million Euros, 50.68% of which is destined to SMEs, and an execution period of 30 months.

Project Resolution Objectives:

The objective of INVECPRO is to research new technologies for the electric and connected vehicle; and it is formed by 7 primary Industrial Research projects, in which technologies beyond the state of the art will be reached and validated by testing of concept of the same, and covering the total of the 9 blocks established in the call.

Since the consortium has significant industrial skills and VEC manufacturing and its components, it is at this point, the investment in Industrial Research that allows to generate higher added value, competitiveness in the medium and long term, and, therefore, generation of sustainable employment. Also, this allows for greater synergies between the primary projects and the different participants.

In addition, INVECPRO includes a primary training project, which acts in a transversal and supportive , to promote technological excellence, professional recycling and the creation of long term employment.

Finally, it should be noted that INVECPRO focuses its research activity on the application to professional vehicles for three reasons:

  • Professional vehicles represent a very significant market segment, which represents 20% of national production.
  • They require high performance, which sets ambitious research objectives.
  • Production is on a smaller scale than privates cars, which allows for lower risk when incorporating research results.
