Scientists from European universities will meet with experts from Daimler AG in Stuttgart on 19 and 20 November 2013 for the “Stuttgart Days” symposium on automotive and corporate history.

As in previous years, the two-day event will be hosted at the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
“Established in 1991, the Stuttgart Days event is an important gathering of researchers, developers, and specialist journalists from the automotive sector,” explains Michael Bock, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic. “This year’s theme is one of particular interest to us as the inventors of the automobile: automotive sustainability and resource efficiency. The Mercedes-Benz Museum offers everyone the opportunity to find out for themselves about the substantial contribution that our company’s engineers have been making in this field for many decades.”

Automotive sustainability and resource efficiency – yesterday, today, and tomorrow: each of the technical presentations at the “Stuttgart Days” symposium systematically addresses this multi-faceted subject, placing the various aspects discussed in the appropriate historical context. The time span considered extends from the invention of the automobile by Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler in 1886 into the near future. Current research and development projects at Daimler AG are also covered in panel discussions.

The “Stuttgart Days” symposium on automotive and corporate history takes place every two years. Mercedes-Benz Classic Archive is responsible for organising the event. The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) acts as a cooperation partner, providing support in preparing and delivering programme content. The interdisciplinary symposium is aimed particularly at academics, journalists and technical specialists from Daimler AG and other organizations.
