On February 23, the 9th Annual Global Automotive & Mobility Innovation Challenge (GAMIC) completed the semi-final round at NextEnergy and NEF played a significant role in the event. Our Stew Nelson was one of the judges, and several teams moving on to the finals were mentored by NEF Board Members. GAMIC is a joint effort between the MI Innovation Alliance, Society of Automotive Engineers, and NextEnergy.
The GAMIC quarter-finals started in October with over fifty participants from across the world and the thirteen finalists will be competing on April 4 from 1:00 to 5:00 at the SAE World Congress (WCX’17) at the Cobo Center for over $300,000 of cash and in-kind commercialization assistance.
