Eurobike & VDI Wissensforum partner to promote technical knowledge transfer

For the 28th edition of Eurobike, a new partnership with the Association of German Engineers (VDI) Wissensforum aims to enable greater synergy between the automotive and bike industries.

The partnership will see the Eurobike Academy take technical knowledge transfer and professional exchange on the latest industry developments “to the next level.”

The VDI Wissensforum has been a leading 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 VDI, and over the last few years has grown its network to include bicycle and e-bike products for urban use, establishing itself as a meeting point for technical specialists and managers from the light e-mobility sector.

Stefan Reisinger, Head of Eurobike and Member of the Board of Directors, said: “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 micro-mobility.”

Timo Taubitz, CEO at VDI Wissensforum, commented on the partnership with Eurobike: “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.”

Representatives from companies such as Bosch, Brose, Conti, KTM, Magura, Schaeffler and VW all sit on the conference’s expert committee. In addition, the German Bike Industry Association (ZIV) is also a member of the expert council for the event.

The VDI Wissensforum will be a central element of the Eurobike Academy from 4 to 6 September 2019 in Friedrichshafen. For more Information visit
