Simply put, such engineers make a company competitive and forward-looking. That's why Audi is a proud premium sponsor of the SACHEN MACHEN initiative,"underscores Dr. Widuckel.

This program seeks to promote the appeal of engineering careers and to provide support to up-and-coming students; to boost companies' innovative excellence;and to cement Germany's standing as a powerhouse of engineering and technology.

"Audi will continue to play a pivotal role in the job market and create excellent opportunities - particularly for engineers. We will continue to blaze trails in engineering and innovation.

The trade show features several of Audi's technological highlights. Examples include the Audi A1 Sportback concept and a one-of-a-kind project in Germany:"Travolution", an application that manages the flow of traffic via optimized communication between traffic signals and vehicles. Moreover, Roman Schindlmaister, Head of Vehicle Concepts at AUDI AG, took part in Tuesday's panel discussion: "Energy Shortage: In the Dark in 30 Years?"
