As part of its policy of identifying new trends in the automotive industry, AIC-Automotive Intelligence Center has launched AIC Next to take a fresh approach to the problem of the future. AIC Next provides a platform where thinkers from a range of disciplines can exchange ideas and develop new concepts for creativity, innovation and values, looking for glimpses of what lies in store for an industry inextricably bound up with its milieu.
Taking part are philosophers, designers, architects, strategists, laboratory directors and R&D and marketing managers, plus entrepreneurs, university lecturers and engineering students.
AIC Next has arrived in two formats:
- A live forum, with interplay between speakers and attendees.
- An online forum, where the dialogue continues on the message boards for each lecture or talk.
The first AIC Next forum was held on 18-19 February 2010, and can be seen here.
