Video presentations Apply & Innovate – TECH WEEKS

Watch exciting video contributions on all aspects of virtual test driving

Gripping topics, innovative use cases and experts who provide deep insights into the development work of well-known companies – these are the Apply & Innovate – TECH WEEKS 2020. With a total of 40 video presentations we are pleased to offer you a varied program this year.  

Starting September 22, we will gradually upload the video contributions of our speakers here. Each week, the focus will be on a new topic: from virtual prototypes to powertrain and from vehicle dynamics to data management. 


On demand and free of charge you can watch the video presentations as often as you like.

An overview of the program as well as the possibility to download reminders of the release dates into your Outlook calendar can be found on our program page. We have compiled information about our speakers for you here
