Audi Innovation Dialogue

Innovations are necessary to safeguard our Vorsprung durch Technik. What does production in the future look like? We are giving you the opportunity to help shape Audi’s production with your flashes of inspiration: What is your innovation for tomorrow’s production? Your efforts will be rewarded! Apart from putting your ideas into practice, prizes of up to €1,000 will be given for good concepts!
