- Competence mapping & competence creation, helping the LAC members to survive and grow in one of the most challenging technology markets;
- Operational excellence, exchange of best practice in manufacturing and product development (processes, efficiency improvement, quality improvement), purchasing and logistics;
- Training, education and recruitment, to further improve the quality and flexibility of the most precious asset of the LAC: Human resources
- Business development, aiming at “easy” access into the European Automotive market, also for non-European investors; improve international visibility of Luxembourg as automotive competence centre.
