EAWD Congress 2019

EAWD'19 Program

The EAWD Congress, famous for being the only congress in Europe focusing on all-wheel drive technology, has taken the next level of development. Under the new name “Electrification & All-Wheel Drive Congress”, the conference will explore the future of AWD technology and will be the hotspot for powertrain electrification and hybridization discussions.

Join about 40 international speakers from OEMs, suppliers and universities who will catch a glimpse of the AWD future under the motto "New Energy for All-Wheel Drive", and discuss the automotive industry’s challenges and latest developments.

Our detailed program for the 14th EAWD Congress will be online soon.
