About ACE mobility

Developments in mobility are moving at lightning speed. The future of road traffic demands smart and green solutions. The Dutch automotive industry and automotive education play an important role in this. In this dynamic playing field, an important task is reserved for the Automotive Center of Expertise (ACE), a powerful network of a select group of prominent companies and organizations in the Dutch automotive industry and two higher education institutions. These are Fontys University of Applied Sciences and HAN University of Applied Sciences

Utilizing the strength of the network
Applied knowledge and research are central to ACE and it is this knowledge that helps the business community to be flexible and agile and to respond quickly to change. ACE uses the strength of the network as a knowledge institute for the automotive industry. An optimal connection of practice-oriented education and the developments in the daily professional practice of the industry are essential for this. The ambitions are high and the future needs of the automotive industry are leading in the course of ACE.

Knowledge institute with focus areas
