◎Outline of Keynote Speech "Next-generation regional transportation 
realized from DX in the taxi industry"  Lecturer: Mr. Yosuke Kondo, CEO 
and Founder of Denno Kotsu,Inc.

 In 2016, President Kondo, who is a lecturer, launched Denno Kotsu, 
which converts taxi dispatch operations into DX, while rebuilding a taxi 
company in Tokushima Prefecture. Currently, taxi operators in 43 
prefectures have introduced this dispatch system. 1) Cloud-based vehicle 
dispatch system 2) Outsourcing of vehicle dispatch call center 
operations 3) Regional transportation solutions are the core of our 
business. Regarding the conversion of taxis to EVs, we will work with 
Daiichi Kotsu Sangyo to develop and demonstrate a system for optimizing 
the operation and power supply of EV taxis as a project adopted by NEDO.
He encouraged the students who participated in the contest, saying, "I 
want you to cherish your time and encounters and nurture your proposals"

◎Chairperson of the Screening Committee Dr. Fujiwara
 The reason why we named the contest title "Society" this time is that 
EVs are not just a means of transportation or a means of solving energy 
problems, but we also wanted young people with promising futures to come 
up with ideas for tackling social issues.
As intended, we received wonderful proposals from the 12 finalists.
We were asked to identify social issues in Japan and the world, and to 
come up with unprecedented ideas to solve those issues. Technologies 
such as Metaverse, Life Science, and Chemistry were proposed as 
supporting technologies for realizing ideas.
Sakai Mobility Systems team has a wonderful idea of farming using EVs to 
increase Japan's food self-sufficiency rate. Let's support young people 
together!

Contest overview +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
◎Title:"Social EV" Design Contest for International Students 2022
◎Purpose:To foster interdisciplinary talent that will lead the next 
generation through research on social design 
and EV possibilities. We call this interdisciplinary talent "an 
architect", and the development of this sort of human resource is the 
highlight of this contest. An architect is a person who has a vision and 
insight beyond the scope of design and engineering and the profession in 
the area of cars.
In this year's contest, the theme was set as "Proposal for 'Social 
Design and EV ' 2040" with a clear deadline. We concluded that the role 
of EVs should not be viewed simply as a mobile vehicle, but rather as a 
form of mobility that is essential to people's lives, and that it should 
be a contest that considers what it means to enrich people's lives.

The theme of this year's contest is "Social Design and EVs: Proposals 
for 2040," and we have set a specific year in the theme. We have 
concluded that the contest should be about the role of EVs not only from 
the viewpoint of transportation but also as a form of mobility that is 
indispensable to people's lives and what makes people's lives more 
affluent.
Therefore, we have changed the evaluation criteria of the contest as 
follows:
[Old] "Styling (priority is on the completeness of design) + Concept (
explanation of design: story)"
[New] "Social Design in 2040 (priority is on the Identification of 
issues) + Concept (solutions) + Design (visual images as explanation)"
We selected "Social design" related to urgent issues such as 
environmental problems, natural disasters, transportation safety, and 
energy, as well as the construction of a new social system centered on 
services.

<To whom it may concern>

APEV has held the "EV Design Contest for International Students" four 
times from 2013 to 2019, every two years in conjunction with the Tokyo 
Motor Show. In response to the widely spreading COVID-19, we have 
postponed the contest in 2021 and are now holding a significantly 
renewed 5th event in 2022.
We are pleased to announce that the first screening has been held, and 
the passing teams were selected from among 82 teams (24 teams from 12 
schools in Japan and 58 teams from 55 schools in 3 overseas countries) 
that submitted their works.
The 26 teams from 18 schools that passed through the first screening 
consisted of 8 teams from 8 schools in India and 18 teams from 10 
schools in Japan.
Please see the List of the passing teams
https://www.apev.jp/en/news/List of the passing teams.pdf
★Students from teams that have passed the first screening will be given the right to participate in Workshop I which is held on Tuesday, August 9, and will work hard to brush up their works for the second screening. The theme of this year's contest is "Social Design and EVs: Proposals for 2040," and we have set a specific year in the theme. We have concluded that the contest should be about the role of EVs not only from the viewpoint of transportation but also as a form of mobility that is indispensable to people's lives and what makes people's lives more affluent. Therefore, we have changed the evaluation criteria of the contest as follows: [Old] "Styling (priority is on the completeness of design) + Concept ( explanation of design: story)" [New] "Social Design in 2040 (priority is on the Identification of issues) + Concept (solutions) + Design (visual images as explanation)" We selected "Social design" related to urgent issues such as environmental problems, natural disasters, transportation safety, and energy, as well as the construction of a new social system centered on services.

The Association for the Promotion of Electric Vehicles (APEV) has 
announced the launch of the fifth "Social EV Design Contest for 
International  students." 
From 2013 to 2019, APEV organized biannual "EV Design Contest for 
International Students" in conjunction with the Tokyo Motor Show. 
In 2021 it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the fifth 
contest will be held with a major revamp in 2022.  

Our aim is to reiterate the fact that the concept of the contest has 
changed significantly from the past four times, and to increase the 
number of applications for students from a wide range of faculties and 
departments.
Therefore, as a result of extending the application period and 
shortening the work creation period, the entire schedule has changed as 
follows. (See attach jpg)
