CTI invites automotive powertrain and industry experts to present their visions, innovations, findings and opinions during 5 & 6 December 2023 in Berlin.

Supporting the path to climate-neutral mobility, the CTI SYMPOSUM GERMANY 2023 expands its range of topics.

Besides electric drives & components CTI SYMPOSIUM GERMANY 2023 will add low-carbon mobility, renewable energies, infrastructure, upstream CO2 reduction and sustainable use of materials. Lectures and discussion topics will include electric drive units, e-motors, batteries, thermal management, NVH, inverters and other power electronics, among others.
Developments and applications for trucks pose a particular challenge and will be another focus area.

In addition to the component level, higher-level topics will also be discussed, looking beyond the powertrain boundaries.


Hand in your topic proposal and volunteer for a speaking opportunity.

Extended Deadline – Submissions are welcome!



The automotive industry is transforming rapidly towards zero-emissions mobility.

While net zero emissions can be achieved with different drive systems and primary energy carriers, all solutions have one thing in common: CO2-neutral mobility based on renewable energy sources.

The International CTI SYMPOSIUM and its flanking specialist exhibition is THE industry event in Europe dedicated to sustainable automotive powertrain technologies for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The event brings together automotive decision makers and industry experts discussing latest strategies, technologies, innovations and the automotive powertrain as part of the greater energy transition!
