Program Overview

shaping change – a dialog between research and industry on electric vehicle drives.

The evolution of mobility is in full swing. Political environmental objectives and the digitalisation of society and industry are key drivers of electromobility. The future drivetrain will be determined by the further development and integration of new technologies.

The E-MOTIVE expert forum on 12-13 September, 2018 is focused on these issues and offers experts from research and industry a platform for dialogue.

Around 250 participants and top speakers from the automotive industry and subcontractors as well as leading research institutes will come together to discuss current topics and trends in the field of electric vehicle drives. You can expect the results of current research projects from the E-MOTIVE innovation network and reports from leading companies on experiences from industrial practice.
