The 41st International Vienna Motor Symposium, scheduled for April 22-24, was to bring together 66 speakers, 60 exhibitors and some 1,200 participants to learn about the latest engineering and powertrain challenges and technical advances.
Instead, it became a virtual event, as organizers were forced to cancel the gathering because of the coronavirus outbreak and associated restrictions on travel and movement. Symposium participants were given access to videos and texts of some of the presentations.
Automotive News Europe was to co-host a session titled “Cross-Company Cooperations,” on how auto companies can work together to meet new technological and regulatory challenges. ANE is pleased to make available a number of speeches and abstracts from that session.
Magna Steyr President Complete Vehicle Manufacturing & Engineering Frank Klein was to give one of the key speeches of the session.
The following is his presentation.
