Student Opportunities Programme


EuroBrake 2016 saw the second EuroBrake Student Innovation Competition, kindly sponsored by Daimler. Grand finalists came from around the world to present their ideas and vision on Autonomous Driving: Implications for Vehicle Braking Systems. Three top prizes were awarded during the Gala Dinner and the finalists enjoyed a Q&A session with industry and academia experts from Daimler, Toyota, FISITA and ZF TRW.

2017 promises to be an exciting year with a new Student Opportunities Programme being developed. Students are offered an opportunity to attend EuroBrake via a sponsorship package which will offer strong networking opportunities, a CV check/one to one career advice, access to the designated Students Lounge and much more. There will also be a student-focussed introductory lecture, access to the EuroBrake Dinner and invitation to attend the Strategy Panel.

The deadline for applications has now closed - thanks to all those who applied.

Thanks to all those who have sponsored the EuroBrake Student Opportunities Programme 2017:


Do you want to engage with and advise engineering and technology students who could become the mobility talent of tomorrow?
Could you help to guide and support students who have a passion for automotive to join our international community?

As the mobility sector looks to the future and embraces the challenges and opportunities of technology changes and trends so too do we at EuroBrake especially when it comes to inspiring the next generation of automotive engineers and technologists.

As part of our continuing development we are offering students an opportunity to attend EuroBrake 2017. You have an opportunity to engage with students at EuroBrake, through being a sponsor of the Student Opportunity Programme. Your participation in this innovative activity will offer you and your company an opportunity to meet students looking to develop and expand their knowledge of the world of braking.

You will be involved from the outset to support students to enter the world of automotive technologies and to guide them in their future development. You will join FISITA, Daimler and other sponsors in promoting this international community. Sponsorship opportunities start at EUR 1,000.
