On October 6 and 7, this competition was held in which CIRCE was present as a jury and speaker before university students from 17 different countries

Last week the Motorland Technopark hosted the fifth edition of Motostudent, a biennial international competition aimed at university students, which aims to improve theoretical knowledge, but above all practical related to R & D & I in the automotive sector.

After a year and a half of work, the 74 teams and about 1,500 students, who have participated in MotoStudent, have submitted their prototypes for several days to the various tests and exams established by the event.

CIRCE has collaborated in the evaluation of these tests both in the technical specifications of the vehicle and in dynamic terms, focusing especially on the “Electric” mode, based on a prototype of a 100% electric vehicle. In addition, several researchers from the center were also part of the jury in the Technological Innovation section to evaluate the compliance of the prototypes presented to the requirements of the competition.

Additionally, CIRCE participated in the technical talks given on Saturday to discuss and discuss different aspects related to mobility. The CIRCE session, allowed to put on the table the characteristics of the inductive load and how it can suppose an impulse to the electric mobility.


MotoStudent is an international event promoted by Technopark Motorland and the Moto Engineerging Foundation, and aims to be a unique forum that brings together university students, teachers and professionals from different sectors of the industry, thus sharing knowledge and experiences of their work.
