He has worked in Cardiff University since 1988. In terms of academic disciplines his work has ranged across spatial industrial development, economics, organisational theory, industrial ecology, technological change, socio-technical transitions theory, business model innovation and sustainability. His research and consulting on the global automotive industry has involved companies throughout the value chain, national and international government bodies, and NGOs. His latest books are: ‘The automotive industry in an era of eco-austerity’ (Edward Elgar, 2010), ‘Business models for sustainability’ (Edward Elgar, 2013) and ‘The global automotive industry’ (edited with Paul Nieuwenhuis; Wiley, 2015).
  • Matthias Weber
    Roben Automotive
    Biography: Matthias started his career as a Research Associate at Technische Universität Darmstadt, where he developed Simulation and Measurement Methodologies for Vehicles and Combustion Engines. After a short period at AVL in Graz he joined Continental Engineering Services in 2006, where he directed multiple projects in the area of Passenger Cars and Commercial Vehicle Powertrains. This also included alternative solutions like Electrical Drivetrains for Cars and Trucks. He successfully delivered these products complying with On Board Diagnostics, State of the Art quality phase gate processes and according to newest safety standards. Matthias left Continental in 2015 to start his own Company Roben Automotive based in Równe, Poland.
  • Nick Molden
    Emissions Analytics
    Biography: Nick founded Emissions Analytics in 2011 in order to understand real-world fuel economy and emissions from vehicles. The concept was to find a way to characterise vehicles in a relatively short test, and be able to conduct a large number of comparable tests. The solution was to use Portable Emissions Measurement Systems to source real on-road raw data efficiently across many vehicles. This database is now a platform for analysing and modelling this data, from which are created the EQUA Air Quality Index in Europe and Real MPG in the USA, as well as extensive testing of heavy and light duty commercial vehicles. Nick is a specialist in data analytics, particularly in the automotive market, through his prior work at Oxford Indices Ltd, a data specialist, United Business plc and Haymarket Media Group. He is a graduate of the University of Oxford, with an MA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
  • Andrea De Filippo
    Adam Opel GmbH
    Biography: Dr. Andrea De Filippo is currently based at Opel Automobile GmbH, in Rüsselsheim am Main (Germany), and he is the Engineering Group Manager of the Diesel Calibration Aftertreatment Systems team. He has a deep knowledge of aftertreatment technologies and relative management gained during his former professional experience at GM Powertrain Europe (2008-2017) where he lead several activities in the area of diesel aftertreatment (Lean NOx Trap, SCR/F, Diesel Particulate Filter, Passive NOx Adsorber) for the Diesel Engine New Product Group & Advanced Technology Development. In 2011, he has been awarded with the prize “Opel Inventor of the Year” for an invention related to LNT+SCRF management. He is also internationally well-recognized for his former research activities (2004-2013) in the area of particulate emissions with focus on Particle Number and relative measurements devices. He holds a Master Degree and PhD in Chemical Engineering from Università Federico II of Naples and, in 2007, he was a Fulbright Program Winner for the research on combustion-based nanoparticles, at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkley (California, USA). He is co-author of 20 Technical papers and articles in the field of SI & CI combustion, fuels, emissions, fuel economy and engine engineering. Andrea is also co-author of 18 patents for the aftertreatment developmet issued in Europe, USA and China.
  • Carloandrea Malvicino
    FCA Italy S.p.A
    Biography: Carloandrea Malvicino, graduated in Physics at the Turin University, after having spent 23 years at \\\"Centro Ricerche Fiat\\\" on thermal system innovation and technologies to improve the efficiency of automotive systems is now leading the CO2 emissions reduction strategies department in FCA Italy S.pA. Carloandrea is a member of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps Technical Options Committee (RTOC) of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and author of several international patents papers in the domain of thermal systems and fuel consumption and CO2 emission reduction.
  • Antonio Multari
    Maschinenbau Haldenwang & Co. KG (MAHA)
    Antonio Multari is the Director International Sales for Maschinenbau Haldenwang & Co. KG (MAHA), in Haldenwang, Germany. Since 2007 Antonio has worked in several international working groups, to realize emission projects. In Germany he is one of the members of the sub group from the ministry of transport for the current emission testing legislation. At the German ASA (equipment manufacturer) association he is the vice chairman of the emission and diagnostic working group. Currently he is working in the German project “Emission Check 2020” and at CITA’s international SET II (Sustainable Emission Testing) Study. At CITA he is a technical expert for emissions. He has also worked at the Californian pilot program with CARB, SCAQMD and FCCC for PM emission testing from tailpipe. Today he is giving support and advices to different countries and organizations related towards how to measure and control emission from tailpipe as CO, CO2, HC, NOx, NO, NO2, PM, Opacity and other pollutants. Also the question of how OBD can support the emission control he has considered in different performed studies.
