VINVOX attends 2013 Canadian Innovation Day at Ford Motor Company

Canadian Innovation Day at Ford Motor Company

March 1, 2013 in Dearborn, Michigan

The Canadian Consulate General in Detroit has initiated the next Canadian Innovation Day with Ford Motor Company.  We are pleased to extend an invitation to Canadian suppliers and Canadian researchers (university and government) to participate in the Innovation Day program on Friday March 1, 2013 hosted in Ford’s Product Development Centre Showroom in Dearborn, Michigan.

This Ford Innovation Day has been scheduled for the morning after the Canada-US Automotive Dinner that will be held February 28 at the Dearborn Inn.  This year’s keynote will be provided by Joe Hinrichs, Ford Motor Company President of the Americas.  The back-to-back timing of these events should provide added convenience to suppliers and researchers planning to attend both events.

This year Ford is interested in supplier and research presentations / displays that focus on the following technology list:

  • Weight Reduction
  • Electrification  (powertrain electrification including motors, controllers, inverters)
  • Customer Surprise / Delight Features
  • Electronic Connectivity / Communication including HMI
  • Interiors –  Creative, Packaging
  • Advanced Materials
  • Fuel Efficiency Technologies
  • Cognitive Functionality
  • Vehicle Safety
  • Battery Technologies
  • Renewable / Sustainable Materials – Vehicle Recyclability
  • Cost Reduction

This opportunity is being offered to Canadian suppliers and research institutions seeking to gain exposure and access to Ford Motor Company.   Ford participants will include:  purchasing, engineering, advanced engineering, and R&D.  Consideration should be given especially if you can offer a new product, process, material, or other innovation. This can be a future product or future application of an existing product, technology or material.
