Automotive Circle WebSeminar

Disruption of the automotive industry

Live and free of charge!

Welcome to the new series of Automotive Circle WebSeminars

"Disruption of the automotive industry" - That is the title of a new series of webseminars the Automotive Circle is launching in June 2020.

According to many experts, the global automotive industry is on the verge of a fundamental change, other experts even speak of a destruction - disruption - of the current structures. New technologies such as electric drive types and autonomous driving as well as new mobility concepts are seen as the cause and visible sign of this change. In addition, advancing digitalization and new smart manufacturing methods are causing a change in the production landscape. 

Based on four single webseminars (see dates and details below), the renowned automotive expert Prof. Dr. Michael Rupp from the Technical University Mittelhessen will outline the causes and mechanisms of disruptive upheavals and will transfer them to today’s automotive industry. Is it just "hype" or is the industry actually facing disruption? What will change in the future and what challenges will manufacturers and suppliers have to overcome in this process? These are the core questions that will be discussed in the new series of webseminars "Disruption of the automotive industry".
