Working groups are temporary teams of experts who develop answers to strategic remanufacturing related topics.

Working groups

About our working groups

APRA Europe supports its members through expert knowledge and advice. Sometimes it is necessary to make a more profound analysis of trends and opportunities, to develop a common understanding of certain aspects of technology, regulation, market trends. This allows an interdisciplinary team of APRA Europe members to work together for a limited period in a cluster and to work out answers and solutions. The end result could be position papers, white papers, books.

Objectives of the working groups

  • to formalize and present to external stakeholders the position of APRA Europe on a specific challenge or enabling technology

  • to revise the state-of-the-art in a specific domain

  • to highlight potential business directions or innovation drivers in the domain

  • to create an APRA Europe critical mass on strategic remanufacturing related topics

  • to create synergies with technology providers orend-users in different sectors

  • to support European Institutions in policy making and legislation

Engine remanufacturing working group

The engine remanufacturing working group evolved from the FIRM association which merged into APRA Europe. FIRM was the umbrella association for national engine remanufacturing associations.
