Audi and TU Dresden to cooperate on joint research in areas such as lightweight construction and manufacturing technology

27 January 2014

AUDI AG and the Technical University of Dresden entered into a strategic partnership with the goal of making further progress with technical innovations. Under the roof of the “Ingolstadt Institute of the Technical University of Dresden” (INI.TUD), the two partners will carry out joint research in areas such as lightweight construction and manufacturing technology.

On the occasion of signing the agreement at the

Audi plant in Ingolstadt, professors of TU Dresden presented their latest research work on the subject of mobility.

We want to create a competence center in which science and practice are closely meshed. One special aspect is the interdisciplinary approach, because various faculties are involved in the project. In addition to physicists, electrical engineers and mechanical engineers, psychologists and transport scientists will work together on topics relating to automobile manufacturing.

—Prof. Dr. Hans Müller-Steinhagen, Principal of TU Dresden

Prior to the new agreement, four doctoral students of TU Dresden are already working on Audi projects, including an emissions concept to reduce energy consumption and the assessment of tire properties.

With INI.TUD, Audi has established its 13th strategic and long-term cooperation with a university. Audi cooperates with 29 scientific institutions worldwide. In addition to doctoral projects, the types of cooperation include the “Audi Colloquium” series of lectures, professorships sponsored by foundations, and the involvement of Audi employees in academic teaching.
