Megatrends such as mobility, energy & environmental technology and mechatronics are major challenges: They will shape our future life and make it unequivocally clear to us that a fresh way of thinking will be inescapable in many fields. At the same time, megatrends offer enormous opportunities – on condition that we make a start now on coming to grips with them in a systematic way.

Schaeffler is identifying relevant technological, societal and economic trends and using our own research to participate in actively shaping them – for example through our eMobility Systems Division. The objective we are pursuing through our commitment: to supply intelligent answers that turn the major challenges of today and tomorrow into equally major or even greater opportunities.
