The Steering Committee provides guidance, support and direction to the Electric Vehicle Collaborative Center for Research and Learning. Experts who sit on the board of the Committee are elected from our most committed members based on their expertise and experience as well as willingness to contribute their time and energy to help the Center grow bigger, better and stronger.
The Committee’s Board Members meet on a weekly basis to discuss a variety of issues concerning the Center’s activities and plans, with an emphasis on:
Research projects. In order to keep the public well-informed and promote EVs as more economic, clean and sustainable alternative to fossil fuel vehicles, our Center is continuously conducting research and analyzing the results of studies/projects by other research centers and organizations. When approved by the Steering Committee, the findings of our research and analyses are made available to the public without any limitations or fees.
Publications and reports. Issued mostly in electronic form, our publications and reports don’t only provide access to the results of various research projects. They also provide a wealth of other useful information related to the EVs in general as well as activities and events of our Center. The Steering Committee doesn’t directly interfere with the selection of articles/content in publications/reports but it plays the key role in ensuring that they continue to provide high value to the readers by offering support, advice and guidance to editors.
Meetings and special events. The Electric Vehicle Collaborative Center for Research and Learning regularly organizes meetings and special events, the majority of which are open to both members and non-members alike. But no matter if intended for members-only or general public, all meetings and special events are organized and directed by our Steering Committee.
Future goals and projects. Each year, the work of our Center is evaluated by the Steering Committee with an aim to determine if and which goals have been met as well as to determine their results. Based on the past work and projects, and above all, their outcomes, the Steering Committee develops guidelines for the upcoming year as well as an outline of goals and projects our Center should focus its attention over a longer period of time. This outline isn’t created based on our Center’s work alone but it also considers the overall trends in the EV industry, forecasts for the future of electric cars and other factors that could influence the sector such as legislation, government incentives, etc.
