Digital Automotive Talk 2020

Reinventing success in Automotive - accelerating through the curve!

Let's talk!

With Covid-19, the automotive industry, already in the midst of a dramatic process of transformation, is facing fundamental challenges. Which innovations are the key to future success and what's holding companies back from reaching the next level?

In our new virtual format Digital Automotive Talk, Felix Kuhnert, Global Automotive Leader at PwC, and Prof Dr Stefan Bratzel, Director of the Center of Automotive Management (CAM), discuss with top executives like Hildegard Müller (VDA), Prof Dr Claudia Kemfert (DIW Berlin), Dr Herbert Diess (Volkswagen AG), Dr Volkmar Denner (Robert Bosch GmbH), Markus Schäfer (Daimler AG) and Dr Stefan Wolf (ElringKlinger AG) why it’s now essential to promote innovative technologies, mobility and sales concepts across all industries and how to speed up while facing challenging times.

Furthermore, we are excited to announce the winners of the AutomotiveINNOVATIONS Awards and give exclusive insights into the strategies of the most innovative manufacturers and suppliers.
