As a French public-private partnership the VeDeCoM Institute is dedicated to research and training on carbon-free, sustainable individual mobility. Initiated by the Mov'eoTec foundation, and kicked-off in 2012 under the leadership of my predecessor Jérôme Perrin, VeDeCoM is now expanding since February 2014 when it was created as "Institute for the Energy Transition" by the French government. It is based on an unprecedented collaboration between industries of the automotive sector, infrastructure and services operators in the mobility eco-system, academic research institutions, and local communities in the Ile de France region. VeDeCoM aims at becoming a European innovation leader in the fields of electrified vehicles, autonomous and connected cars, and new infrastructure and services for shared mobility and energy.
