The STRIVE project has been shortlisted for The Engineer’s ‘Collaborate to Innovate’ awards, in the category ‘Information, Data and Connectivity’.  The winner of the award, which recognises collaborative innovations within the field, will be announced at the Collaborate to Innovate conference taking place in Coventry on the 17th November 2016.

A three year collaborative R&D project, STRIVE (Simulation Tools for Rapid Innovation in Vehicle Engineering), which was part funded by AMSCI (Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative), was set-up to deliver a new digital supply chain to develop globally competitive products. To address the challenges set by OEM client Bentley Motors, the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), a University of Liverpool initiative, in conjunction with the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) brought together Liverpool City Region-based technology SME’s OPTIS and to provide collaborative, integrated solutions.

The application highlighted the huge success of STRIVE for all partners, including job creation, career development and meeting Bentley’s key strategic target of reducing product development time, while enhancing build quality.
