Annual Science Fair


Offered each fall both onsite in Silicon Valley and online in Autotech Council's Portal

Autotech Council's Annual Science Fair is a once-a-year opportunity for any technology company to introduce their innovations to strategy, R&D, scouting, and partnership executives from across the mobility industry. Every year, 100s of participants share dozens of technologies and thousands of ideas at our Annual Science Fair. 

Companies leading the automotive, transportation, and mobility industries into the future are committed to innovation - both to innovating themselves and to partnering with the best innovations available whether those are found in their existing supply chain, a venture funded startup, or a university lab.  While the layout may be reminiscent of a High School Science Fair, the technology is not!
