This Foundation is a natural extension of the Galician Automotive Companies Cluster, created in 1997 by initiative of 37 automotive components manufacturers, with the aim of developing cooperative projects to improve their competitiveness.

Since it was first established, the number of members has more than doubled in size: from an initial figure of 37 companies to the 91 companies (including the PSA Peugeot Citroën centre in Vigo and the Galician Automotive Technological Centre) which currently form part of CEAGA. The 91 companies of the cluster had a turnover in 2011 of 7,000 million EUR, representing 12% of Galician GDP, and employing 19,300 people in the industry.

Movilidad Urbana Sostenible S.L.

http://www.movus.es

Movus was founded with the goal of bringing new solutions to the urban mobility in order to help achieve more sustainable mobility. Located in Valencia, Spain, Movus focuses on the research and development of new mobility solutions. The present market offers few solutions, and usually with insufficient information, lack of technology and appropriate applications. This is the case of some modern systems such as bike‐sharing, car‐pooling, car‐sharing, electric vehicles, and on-demand public transportat.

The implementation of these strategies needs a deep knowledge of the problem to be able to propose and implement coherent and effective new solutions using new technologies and methodologies of management.The priorities of the company are the new approaches to mobility, which can generate alternatives to the private car, in order to make a shift towards a more environmental, social and economic sustainable mobility.
