FEV Innovation Forum
The Innovation Forum sessions focus on important issues and advances in vehicle and propulsion system technologies. Panels formed by High Level Technical Managers deliver information on technologies being researched, developed, and/or implemented in their organization or within the industry

Tech Hub - NEW FOR 2015!

Located on the exhibit floor, and completely NEW for 2015, the SAE World Congress Tech Hub will feature industry experts addressing technical advancements most critical to the sustained advancement and growth of the automotive industry, and will enlighten their colleagues with concepts not yet mature enough for formal technical paper presentation. Thought leaders from outside of the industry will also challenge attendees with ideas and concepts that may be transferable, and will be thought provoking, or even disruptive.

Developed with automotive engineers and other key stakeholders in mind, the Tech Hub integrates information sharing in short, impactful segments presented in diverse, non-traditional methods (such as hands-on demonstrations, engaging talks, etc.). Unlike other aspects of World Congress, the Tech Hub will provide information that is focused on topics specific to, or that can be transferred to, automotive engineering practices and support.
