The International VDI Congress "Dritev - Drivetrain for Vehicles"

Dear members of the DRITEV Community,

In light of the technologial upheaval phase that the powertrain is currently undergoing we could once again witness at this year’s DRITEV how important the exchange of views with OEMs, suppliers and universities at a high technological level is. In addition to all the challenges that the world markets see themselves faced with - posed by the electrification and hybridisation of drives - one of the key objectives remains to be able to refine and enhance existing technical solutions down to the smallest detail.  

Being the conference chairman I noticed at this year’s conference how much the DRITEV is nourished by the high level of expertise lectures and their subsequent debate. In-depth discussion, ample opportunity to share views with fellow participants and the accompanying trade exhibition are key elements that make the congress a fantastic place for forging new ideas and innovations.  

The program committee and myself are already looking forward to the DRITEV 2019 and the large number of lectures that will hopefully be submitted following this  „Call for Papers“ ; as done every year, we are eager to compose an attractive congress agenda with interesting topic fields. 

Thank you very much and see you in Bonn!

Matthias Zink

CEO Automotive, Schaeffler, Chairman Dritev
