The swiss Center for Automotive Research (swiss CAR), founded in 2005, creates an environment that enables the conduct of relevant and empirical research in an industry that is innovative in its products, processes, and technologies, core to Europe’s economy, and broad enough to study from various perspectives and over a longer period of time. Establishing competence on the industry’s specifics and maintaining long-term relationships with companies in this industry has allowed for the identification and framing of research problems highly relevant to the industry as well as exceptional access to empirical data. A research team of doctoral students, guest researchers, interns, and partly temporary personnel constitutes the center which is concerned with Technology- and Innovation Management-related studies. The center is known to national and international companies and to industry and governmental associations. Also, it is part of the Program on Vehicle and Mobility Innovations (PVMI).
