Congress Program Committee

The VDI is known for sophisticated technology and quality. Particularly these attributes in the further education of engineers provide the groundwork for our congresses, conferences and seminars. 
The program committees, comprising of industry and research representatives, help us realize these goals and choose topics and lectures that are as relevant as possible in industry practice. The ladies and gentlemen in the program committees are your “voice“ when it comes down to bringing an event in line with your needs.

Likewise, the VDI Congress “Dritev” is professionally supported by a program committee counting 28 members. In addition to Germany’s top OEMs, the committee is made up of key industry and research representatives.
At this point we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all members for their long years of honorary commitment.
