Design for Future: Dream your 2025 FSAE Italy Car - Car Design Contest

The technological transition of the automotive industry in name of electrification and digitalization, up to the development of the connected and self-driving vehicle and of new models of human-machine interaction, requires a reflection also on the transformation of the most creative aspects, related to car design, style and ergonomics of vehicles, as well as the future of professionalisms and skills that are changing and seeing the entry of new figures, such as digital designers.

This reflection implies the need to put in play new ideas, also through the contamination among different disciplines and the aggregation of several complementary skills, leaving the right space for creativity in the design phase - where engineering innovation and originality can be particularly rewarding in the orientation towards the future - as well as in product development phase.

A jury made of car design, style and engineering experts, coming from the companies affiliated to ANFIA Car Coachbuilders and Designers Group, the FSAE Italy Judges of the Design Commission and from some other partner companies will evaluate the proposals and award a prize to the first 3 classified teams.
