Movin’On Labs network: the international benchmark for sustainable mobility through innovation
With Movin'On Labs (previously Open Lab Michelin), this ecosystem continues to expand. More than 250 players — including major industrial and consulting groups, innovators, researchers and public and private organizations — have joined forces at Michelin's initiative to create the benchmark international network for sustainable mobility through innovation. The diverse innovation community they form around our R&D center includes startups, academic research labs, and other businesses.
A “think and action tank”
Movin'On Labs, which is open by nature, is a "think and action tank." Its members contribute their expertise and convictions to the mobility of the future. They form multiple communities that work closely on cutting edge technological developments.
These interdisciplinary connections have led to the emergence of practical, operational proposals like those featured in the "Speeding up to <2°C" report, the first by a Movin'On Labs community.
Their work keeps the spirit of the Movin'On summit, the global sustainable mobility encounter (next edition scheduled for June 3-5, 2020 in Montreal) alive throughout the year.
We are proud to have gotten so many players involved in an event, but more importantly we believe that the Movin'On Labs offer an approach that rises to the challenges facing a group like ours.
Thanks to its technological expertise, customer-centric approach and long-term strategic vision, Michelin is constantly reinforcing its position as the global leader on and facilitator of sustainable mobility.
The global mobility summit
Over the course of 20 years and as many editions, the Michelin Challenge Bibendum (renamed Movin'On in 2017) has become the leading sustainable mobility event.
At each annual event, the Group reaffirms and extends its commitment to clean, sustainable mobility for everyone.
Movin'on : Michelin and its mobility ecosystem
Every year, more than 4,000 policymakers and more than 90 speakers — including experts, researchers, startup founders, and politicians — come from around the world to meet in Montreal and share their ideas, solutions, expertise, and experiences to improve mobility.

20 years in 7 key dates
The first Michelin Challenge Bibendum. During this initial event, held in France, Nissan presented a prototype featuring a lithium battery. Two decades later, cars are using those batteries on the road worldwide.
In Shanghai, Renault unveiled a Logan that emitted 72 g of CO2/km in normal conditions. The race for low emissions was on!
In Rio, presenters showed that 50 CO2/km was an achievable target.
The Berlin edition confirmed the bright future and vast market potential of fuel cells.
In Chengdu, the Michelin Challenge Bibendum changed formats to become a “think and action tank” aimed at improving quality of life worldwide through better mobility.
Introduction of the Mercedes Class E with connective and driving assistance technologies which prefigured the arrival of autonomous cars (following the lines, automatic driving in traffic, etc.)
In Montreal, the Michelin Challenge Bibendum became Movin’On. Movin’On draws on an ecosystem of academic, political, business, municipal and start-up leaders to identify and implement practical solutions to tackle the major challenges of sustainable mobility.
Michelin’s purpose and Movin’On
Movin'On 2018: Guided Visit of the Michelin Booth
At Movin’On, we have an opportunity to present our goals for sustainable development and mobility and to show how we intend to achieve them in the future thanks to our Vision concept.
Since its creation, the Group has always aimed to sustainably improve mobility for its customers: a vision that directs all of the Michelin's research and innovation towards a more sustainable economy.
Michelin envisions a circular economy capable of preserving the planet's resources by reducing, reusing, renewing and recycling the materials needed to produce the company's products and services, to avoid leaving a lasting environmental impact!
Because the Michelin group is keenly aware that for mobility to have a future, it must be safer, more efficient, and better for the environment.
That's why Michelin launched the Challenge Bibendum in 1998 and remains committed to this global summit, offering the transportation ecosystem further confirmation of its commitment to clean, sustainable mobility.
