« The IVI’s mission is very stimulating and the act of helping companies accelerate their innovation projects is also very rewarding. When these projects also help reduce GHG emissions through the electrification of new types of vehicles, that’s ecstasy. I’m lucky to have a fantastic team of experts for whom working at IVI is more than a job, it’s a vocation, and I’m very grateful for that! »
