fisitaFISITA (Fédération Internationale des Sociétés d'Ingénieurs des Techniques de l'Automobile) was founded in Paris in 1948 with the motto Progressons en Commun – Together we Progress. FISITA’s purpose is the same today as it was then: to bring together engineers from across the globe to share ideas and advance the technological development of the automobile.

FISITA is the umbrella organisation for the national automotive societies around the world - controlled by the engineering profession and supported by the global automotive industry. Our network of Member Societies represents over 210,000 automotive engineers. FISITA’s goal is to provide a forum for dialogue amongst these engineers, as well as industry, government, academia, environmental and standards organisations.
