The "Silesia Automotive Platform" is an initiative of the Katowice Special Economic Zone, InnoCo and Landster Business Development that is being delevoped with and for the purpose of automotive industries and their cooperatives. Our vision is to establish the silesian and opole region as the mideuropean centre of automotive competence. The main target of "Silesia Automotive" is to build along with our partners a strong platform of exchange and cooperation between companies, science and education institutions.

In 2013 we will focus our actions on two key theme groups: (1) human resources and labour market and (2) new materials and engineering development. We plan to publish cyclical analysis, conduct workshops involving HR managers, Production Managers, Technicians and outside specialists, organize information exchange and problem solving meetings, and to support developing projects.
