A new partnership with the Association of German Engineers (VDI) Wissensforum will ensure that the Eurobike Academy is "taking technical knowledge transfer and professional exchange on the latest industry developments to the next level".
“We are delighted to welcome more engineers, technology experts and managers with the VDI Wissensforum information exchange at Lake Constance to give new momentum for light e-mobility and micromobility,” said Stefan Reisinger, head of Eurobike, Messe Friedrichshafen and member of the board of directors.
The VDI Wissensforum GmbH has been a provider of further education and training for engineers, technical specialists and managers since 1957, offering over 2,150 seminars, conferences and workshops. Its training events are supported by the network of the VDI and its affiliates.
Every year this community meets to exchange knowledge and expertise at the VDI conference "Leichte E-Mobilität, Fahrzeuge für den urbanen Raum” (Light e-mobilty, vehicules for urban areas). Representatives from companies such as Bosch, Brose, Conti, KTM, Magura, Schaeffler and VW all sit on the conference’s committee. The German Bike Industry Association (ZIV) is also a member of the expert council for the event.
Timo Taubitz, CEO VDI Wissensforum GmbH, said: “At VDI Wissensforum, we are already very closely connected to the automotive industry. Eurobike stands for the bike industry. It’s important to promote professional exchange between these two sectors in order to harness synergies.
“Light e-mobility is breaking down the barriers between bikes and automobiles and creating a new innovative growth industry. If both sectors work together intensively and exchange ideas then light e-mobility will gain further momentum in urban areas.”
Eurobike 2019 will open to trade visitors for three business days from 4th to 6th September, followed by Festival Day on 7th September.
