The ika-Meetup Series of Events


One of the greatest challenges of our time, shaping the mobility of the future, is the focus of ika-Meetups. Launched in March 2018 with the focus on "Automated Driving", they have firmly established themselves in the scientific calendar of events on the RWTH campus. At the beginning of this year the topic "E-Mobility" was added.

Like their role models in Silicon Valley, the ika Meetups are also characterized by a relaxed atmosphere, in which the participants eagerly discuss the topic over snacks and drinks after each lecture and expand their personal network

The speakers are proven experts from research and industry who present current research and development topics. The lectures do not have the character of a purely scientific specialist lecture and it is important that, in addition to the technical solution, practical applications are also presented.

In addition to experts from the automotive sector (engineering colleagues as well as scientific and technical staff), the target group naturally includes students from the RWTH and FH Aachen and interested citizens from the city region.

Thanks to sponsoring by fka GmbH, admission, snacks and drinks are free of charge.
