The best teams and participants will be invited to an Expert Workshop with managers from our Production division, during which they can present their concepts, refine their ideas together with Audi’s experts and make valuable contacts. The winners can look forward to total prize money of € 12,500 in various categories, as well as the Audi Production Award itself.
Alois Brandt, Spokesman for the Pre-development and Innovation Team in Production“The Audi Production Award gives creative people the opportunity to present their own ideas to a panel of high-ranking industrial experts. Together, we will drive forward your concepts. Take part and become one of the “best” in the field of science and technology!”
Stefan Ertel, Component Manufacturing“The Production Award is an outstanding medium. It offers committed, innovative people the opportunity to come into contact with Audi. A big attraction of this is combining fresh, new ideas with the competence of a premium manufacturer – an extremely exciting task!”
Dr. Ingo Färber, Pre-series Centre“The Audi Production Award gives our company the chance to discover the fresh, unconventional and idealistic ideas of young people. Ideas that we rarely come up with in everyday working life.”
Markus Reich, Press Shop Division“The Audi Production Award is an ideal opportunity to bring the manufacturer of premium vehicles into contact with young and innovative people. Both sides benefit – a classic win-win situation.”
Peter Dollinger, Powertrain Planning Electric Motors“The Audi Production Award creates a platform to discuss interesting ideas on the future of manufacturing, while at the same time enabling us to meet people who challenge the status quo and strive to achieve genuine innovations.”
Thomas Rolka, Powertrain Planning, AUDI Hungaria Motor Kft.“Due to market volatility and the ever-increasing demands placed on vehicle systems and their production processes, we must continuously develop manufacturing technologies in order to ensure the sustained success of AUDI AG. The Audi Production Award is aimed at innovative people with new and creative ideas who will provide fresh impetus to the development of new production processes. It gives students and research assistants a unique opportunity to present their ideas and critically examine them together with high-ranking experts from the Production division.”
Dr. Martin Wahl, Toolmaking Division"We approach students and young engineers with topics from Audi’s current manufacturing environment and receive creative suggestions which we can discuss with them. On the one hand, the Audi Production Award already gives students a direct insight into the needs and conditions of car manufacturing. On the other hand, it gives Audi’s production staff the chance to forge strong contacts with interested students."
Dr. Christian Allmann, Planning Electrics/Electronics“The Audi Production Award is an opportunity for us to create a direct link with innovative thinkers outside the company and to discuss ideas and concepts which are perhaps somewhat unusual for us.”
Wilhelm-Robert Stein, Neckarsulm Plant“With the Audi Production Award, we aim to collect visionary and creative ideas which will help us conserve resources and produce in a more (energy-) efficient way – despite the growing complexity – in the medium to long term”.
Heinz-Joerg Haberkorn, Logistics“The Audi Production Award underlines Audi’s standing as the favourite employer for engineers. Creative people can work with us on future production issues. Everybody who takes part wins – nobody loses. Why not get involved too!”
Kay Sauber, Production Systems“For me, the Audi Production Award provides a framework for collaborating with dedicated individuals – something we simply cannot achieve in the context of our daily work. This ideas contest enables us to choose promising approaches for future problems. And that’s exactly the meaning of our brand value “Progressiveness”: to find answers before the questions arise.”
