5th International Advanced Mobility Forum (IAMF): 7 8 March 2012

IAMF was created five years ago to bring together scientists and key actors from the motor industry to exchange knowledge and accelerate development. IAMF is also the occasion for a large public to learn more about individual mobility of today and tomorrow. Taking place alongside the International Geneva Motor Show, the forum has been the ideal discussion platform for many renowned experts from its first edition on and has been providing worldwide visibility to numerous highly specialised start-ups.

Philippe Dietrich
