25 YEARS: 20th Stuttgart International Symposium "Automotive and Engine Technology"

The Stuttgart International Symposium is established as one of the most important discussion forums in the field of vehicle and engine development with about 900 participants // More than 100 presentations of this international event and the parallel technical exhibition combine proven solutions with innovative concepts // Focus topic: The Transformation of the Automotive Industry // As always, the FVV is represented with three presentations

The 20th Stuttgart International Symposium "Automotive and Engine Technology" will take place in Stuttgart from 17 – 18 March 2020.

The zero carbon car – technical challenges of the future

The mobility transition and intermodal mobility; car sharing versus shared space, digitalization, automation and networking, e-fuels, batteries or fuel cells after all? The current discussions concerning the future of personal transport are generally characterized by uncertainty and open questions, rather than clear answers and confidence. This is perturbing the industry: unsettling it on the one hand and on the other hand making it more important than ever to get to grips with the issues involved.

With its focus on “The challenges of future technology” and its diverse program of lectures, the 20th Stuttgart International Symposium grapples with these questions. It hopes to help the industry approach these future-related topics and provide a platform for – potentially controversial – discussions.

FVV Session: 17 March 2020 | 15h35 - 16h35 CET

The program structure has also changed. In response to requests from our participants we are now offering more opportunities for collaboration and networking:

  • In the World Café, you can work on specific solutions for current problems in our industry. The results of this creative unit will be presented directly to a wide audience directly before the podium discussion.
  • We'll be celebrating the Stuttgart International Symposium's 25th birthday with a stand party in the exhibition.
  • A poster session and a tour of the exhibition are further new features. You can also expect some optical changes on location, along with some familiar elements!
