On-Board Diagnostics Digital Summit-Europe


Advancing On-Board Diagnostics, Monitoring, and Calibration Systems Technologies.

The progression of new and changing emission regulations, in combination with the evolving electrified powertrain and propulsion systems, results in the need for the continued advancement of on-board diagnostics, monitoring and calibration systems technologies. 

Our 2022 technical program will focus on addressing the technical challenges presented by new vehicle systems, the latest regulatory and standards requirements, new legislative policies, industry drivers, and new and emerging technologies. 

Hear regulatory updates from the California Air Resources Board, recent developments from top European and U.S. companies, and the latest from officials in China.

Program Highlights

Keynote Presenter

Panagiota Dilara

Senior Expert and Team Leader for Clean Vehicles 
European Commission

Abstract title: Proposed EURO 7 Regulations and How They Will Achieve European Green Deal Goals

Dr. Panagiota (Penny) Dilara is a Chemical Engineer with a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania (USA) for her work in catalysis and surface science. 

She worked for 20 years at the European Commissions’s Joint Research Centre in Italy in the fields of transport and energy. She did research and led groups of JRC scientists working in the field of particle measurements, air quality modelling, emission inventories, road-transport and electromobility modelling. 

Since 2015, she moved in the Automotive Unit of DG-GROW, in the European Commission in Brussels. She currently leads the Clean Vehicles Team, responsible for the development of emissions regulations both in Europe and Globally (UNECE). The current focus of her work is the development of future emissions legislation (EURO 7) in Europe. 

She has produced 7 pieces of EU regulations and contributed to many others and authored 32 scientific papers.
