The Specialist Program – Core Element of the Congress

The International VDI Congress Dritev is based on its core element, the specialist program. Having been reviewed and selected by a number of experts, the lectures actually reflect any challenges developers are currently facing in the preliminary and series development of transmissions in addition to hybrid and electrified power trains. In other words: you will only hear lectures that make a substantial contribution to those development issues that really matter. 

The Specialist Program of last years VDI Congress “Drivetrain for Vehicles“ can be viewed here.

Parallel Conferences

For many years the Congress has established itself as a platform for adjacent sectors and related topic areas, which means that - in addition to the passenger vehicle industry - the focus this year will also be placed on another industry and subject area. 


The VDI places special emphasis on continuous education geared towards the ongoing build-up of knowledge amongst engineers. Therefore workshops will be held on the day prior to the Congress, which will help transmission and drivetrain engineers expand and deepen their knowledge.
