Welcome Address

The expert summit that drives mobility

All areas of life are being heavily impacted by Covid-19. This includes all economic sectors and the automotive industry, as well as our Symposium, which will be held this year as a digital live event in a high quality format.

Forecasts for 2020 predict a worldwide reduction in passenger and light duty vehicle production volumes of 23% compared to the previous year. This new reality comes at a time when the automotive industry is still restructuring around the topics of carbon-neutral mobility, digitalization and autonomous driving. The new situation adds additional pressure to the uncertainties of this transformation, particularly with regard to propulsion systems, emission regulations and the global automotive market.

Our Symposium will address all these challenges in two panel discussions on “The new reality after Corona” and “BEV vs. FCEV – Which technology is future proof?” as well as in multiple plenary and session presentations.

We look forward to your participation in CTI Berlin 2020 Digital, where we will gain insights into the future path of the drive train world, together with industry-leading experts.
