Olivier COPPIN

Following a mechanical engineer diploma (CESTI/SUPMECA) and a PhD in mechatronics (Ecole Centrale de Paris), I joined PSA Peugeot Citroen as Cockpit architect. I joined then the Vehicle Architecture team and was in charge of the B Segment platform.

After 10 years in synthesis architecture team, I created the Advanced Integration team in the Research and Innovation department, as responsible for the innovations integration in development vehicle projects. I joined then the alternative powertrain department and became responsible for advanced Hybrid and transmissions programs.

After 7 years in this field I joined Valeo Powertrain team as R&D and innovation director, in charge of innovative prospection and advanced powertrain projects. I dealt with systems and technologies addressing the fuel consumption reduction (hybridization, energy management and recovery, powertrain management optimization …). I was also in charge of collaborative projects with external partners and customers.

After 4 years, I joined Faurecia Clean Mobility as System & Advanced Technologies director, in charge of innovation, technological breakthroughs, advanced métier supports such as powertrain physics, mechatronic and system engineering. I’m also in charge of the innovation support structures as innovation lab and a worldwide open innovation platform.
