about the hosts

In addition to the hosts of ARENA2036, many other individuals and partners are involved in the Stuttgart Conference on Automotive Production. Our key partners include ISW, University of Stuttgart, DigiTain project, and IEEE TEMS, who provide significant support in organizing and implementing the conference.

ARENA2036 stands for “Active Research Environment for the Next generation of Automobiles” and is an innovation platform for the future of production and mobility. It is one of nine research campuses in the BMBF funding initiative “Research Campus – Public-Private Partnership for Innovation” in Germany. ARENA2036 serves as a platform for developing disruptive technologies through collaboration between high-tech companies and leading scientific institutes. As a member of the University of Stuttgart campus, we offer our 50+ partners direct access to exceptional expertise and collaboration with top experts from various scientific fields.

The Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units (ISW) at the University of Stuttgart is a leading research center in the field of control engineering, covering everything from planning to tooling. The ISW conducts interdisciplinary research in future production and automation technologies. For nearly 50 years, ISW has been an innovative and reliable partner for ambitious challenges in the industry, from initial concept to final product.

Supported by

The DigiTain research project began on January 1, 2023, and aims to develop processes, methods, and models for fully digital product development and certification of sustainable electric drive architectures. It is a collaboration between 26 funded and 2 associated partners from industry and academia. The project will run for 36 months and aims to advance digitization for sustainability in the realm of electric drive architectures.

The Logo of IEEE TEMS

IEEE TEMS is an acronym for the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society. It is a society within the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) that focuses on the management sciences and practices necessary for defining, implementing, and managing engineering and technology. TEMS covers areas such as technology policy development, innovation, product development, team management, and organizational development from an engineering and technology-based perspective. The society offers resources, professional development opportunities, and a global community for practitioners and academics interested in technology and engineering management.
