EuroCarBody 2016

18 th Global Car Body Benchmarking Conference

EuroCarBody Awards

Since 2002, the bestowal of the EuroCarBody Awards has been the annual climax of each EuroCarBody conference.

The awards are granted by Automotive Circle International for the most convincing OEM car body developments that have been presented at a given EuroCarBody conference, in terms of both product and process innovations.

 

The winners are determined in a competition of all car body presentations, based on the evaluation of five equal-weight technical criteria:

  1. Car body development and construction 
  2. Material development and application
  3. Production efficiency
  4. Car-body-implied customer value
  5. Quality and completeness of the presentation

 

The total ranking results from the evaluation of these categories by the members of the conference’s OEM Advisory Board on the one hand (accounts for 40% of the total result), and by the entire conference plenum of international car body engineers on the other (60%).

 

Through this unique procedure, the competition for the awards provides a very profound and valuable expert feedback on their developments for all participating OEM. Because of this, the EuroCarBody Awards since long have been regarded as the globally most important accolade in industrial car body engineering.
