SiEVA d.o.o. is a research company whose name is an abbreviation in Slovene that stands for “Synergetic ecologic safe vehicle''. The research centre has been founded by 9 Slovenian companies with an aim of providing research and development service in strategic fields of vehicle electrification and vehicle safety.

SiEVA d.o.o. research centre operates as a web-like entrepreneurial/industrial incubator with units located at the sites of partners’ companies. It currently employs more than 40 engineers and technicians with many more to follow suit. The company focuses on development of new cutting-edge technology solutions, development of new innovative business models, push into new prospective markets and development of synergies on all areas of operating activities. The key tool in achieving these goals lies in forging of connections of knowledge and references and an accelerated positioning of development capacities on a global scale.

Fields of research of the SiEVA d.o.o. include:

  • Energy and environment – Internal combustion engine,
  • Energy and environment – Vehicle electrification
  • Safety and comfort and
  • Tools and technology.
