Lecture by Flossbach von Storch on innovation and competition in the German automotive industry

Are you interested in learning more about competition in the German automotive industry? Then our event with Flossbach von Storch is just right for you. While Chinese car manufacturers are pushing into the European market with their relatively cheap electric cars, the question arises as to whether competition should be restricted.

Flosbach von Storch will take you through the early years of automotive history, as well as the 1920s and 1970s. The lecture will take place on 27th June 2024 at 5.00 p.m. in room 0.224,  Please register in advance via the following link:
