Dr. Ing. Olivier COPPIN – R&D innovations Director VALEO Power Train.
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 deal with systems and technologies addressing the fuel consumption reduction (hybridization, energy management and recovery, powertrain management optimization …). I’m also in charge of collaborative projects with external partners and customers.
