We deal with the industry's important future topics. For this, we established 4 Competency Centres at an early stage:

  • Digitalisation   
  • Drive and storage technologies
  • Sustainable vehicle development
  • Safe Mobility

In interdisciplinary teams with our colleagues from various departments, we develop solutions, concepts and strategies and expand specialist skills.

We see our Competency Centres as a "facilitator" for EDAG to recognise our customers' future needs as early as possible. This enables us to make pre-competitive skills available for the development of the automobile of the future.
