2019 Powertrain Expert Forum: ONE FOR ALL | 3 ATZlive conferences at one place

ATZlive unites the well-established conferences "Charge Cycle and Emission Control", "Friction in the Powertrain and Vehicle" and "Simulation and Testing" in the Powertrain Expert Forum // Prof. Dr. Peter Gutzmer gives a keynote on the role of tribology as anchor technology in the powertrain transition // Reduced participation fee for FVV member companies

ATZlive unites the three conferences "Charge Cycle and Emission Control", "Friction in the Powertrain and Vehicle" and "Simulation and Testing" in the Powertrain Expert Forum. Participants now have the opportunity to switch to the parallel sessions and thus broaden their perspective while the independent character of these well-known conferences with their technical depth will be retained. The communication beyond one's own field of expertise and the increasingly important thinking in systems are promoted.


Powertrain Expert Forum | 23 to 24 October 2019 | Hanau, Germany


The President of the FVV, Prof. Dr. Peter Gutzmer, is one of the three top speakers of the event:

1 | Vehicles of the Future - The Role of Tribology in the Powertrain Transition
Prof. Dr. Peter Gutzmer | Deputy CEO and Chief Technology Officer, Schaeffler AG, Germany

2 | Powertrain Development in the Context of Global Market Diversification
Jörg Rückauf | Vice President Filtration & Engine Peripherals, MAHLE Filtersysteme GmbH, Germany

3 |The Digital Powertrain Development of the Future - an Holistic, Systematic and Customised Approach
Dr. Bruno Kistner | Head Digital Powertrain Development, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Germany

MAIN SUBJECT AREAS: Tribology as Anchor Technology in the Powertrain Transition – Electrification, Optimised Materials and System Knowledge

The Conference "Friction in the Powertrain and Vehicle“ will be chaired by Prof. Dr. Tim Hosenfeld (Senior Vice President Innovation & Technology, Schaeffler AG). Martin Nitsche (Deputy Managing Director, FVV) as a member of the Advisory Board advises the conference organisers on all questions related to Industrial Collective Research (IGF).

  • Tribology
  • Crankcase and crankshaft drive
  • Electrified powertrains
  • Gear transmission
  • CO2

Continue to stay ahead: ATZlive and FVV are looking forward to your participation!  FVV member companies benefit from a reduced participation fee.
