SOBR relies on the generous support of partners and collaborators. We encourage you to reach out to us to see how we can work together.

SOBR sponsors enable us to organize and host events for our growing network of young researchers. From universities to industry and a variety of institutes we thought we’d take a moment to give credit where it’s due and thank all our supporters for their hard work and generous sponsorship over the past years.

SOBR thanks our sponsors past and present
