Co-located with the Washington, D.C., Auto Show, SAE International’s annual Government/Industry Meeting(GIM) will take place in Washington, D.C, Jan. 17-19, 2023, and provide a forum for open dialogue among key players from the government, policy, and automotive worlds to discuss the impact of regulation, technology, and customer acceptance on future vehicle design — and of R&D on current and future regulation.

Keynote speaker Gabe Klein, executive director, Department of Energy, Joint Office of Energy and Transportation, will provide key insights on the focus of the new joint office, why it was created, and what will be its directive for the next 3-5 years. This will be the first public appearance by Klein at the GIM.

There will also be a Keynote Roundtable session featuring former government officials who will share insight on what direction and action policy, regulation, guidance, and approaches they recommend based upon lessons learned, advancements in technology, and how the industry needs to “look around corners” on safety and public acceptance of the future of mobility.
