The PCIM Europe has been held annually in Nuremberg since 1979 and has since established itself as the leading event for power electronics, intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management. The exhibiting companies represent the entire spectrum of the industry and present their latest product innovations to trade visitors on an annual basis.
In addition to the top-class lecture program of the Exhibitor, Industry and E-mobility forum, the event highlights include special exhibition areas that focus on current industry trends. This year, for example, trade visitors can look forward to the "Batteries & More - Energy Storage Pavilion", the "E-Mobility Area" and the "U.S. Pavilion".
Meeting point for experts: International conference
At the international conference, highly qualified speakers from science and industry will be presenting the latest research results and innovations. Participants can look forward to an extensive program of over 300 keynotes, oral and poster presentations, and special sessions. Practical first-hand knowledge is offered by seven user-oriented seminars and ten tutorials with renowned experts. The current conference program is now available at pcim-europe.com/program.
New for 2022: Hybrid event format
In 2022, the PCIM Europe will be held in a hybrid format for the first time. The focus will be on the on-site event in Nuremberg from 10 - 12 May 2022. This will be accompanied by a digital event platform. In the run-up to the PCIM Europe, interested parties can prepare at the "digital warm-ups" on 4 May 2022; to round off the event and intensify the newly established contacts, there will be a "digital follow-up" on 18 May 2022 after the exhibition and conference. In this way, exhibitors, visitors, speakers and conference participants can continue to network beyond the event period and find out about the latest trends in the field.
News from the industry: Power & Beyond
The online content platform Power & Beyond was launched in 2020 to provide the power electronics community with current branch topics throughout the year. This format offers power electronics suppliers the opportunity to present themselves and their products and to specifically address the specialist audience. Power & Beyond consumers benefit from diverse and continuously updated content on industry trends and the latest research findings.
A podcast on power electronics: Sound on. Power on.
With the English-speaking podcast "Sound on. Power on." the PCIM Europe launched a further content offering at the beginning of the year. In compact 20 to 30-minute episodes, host Professor Marco Jung from Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences takes his listeners on a journey through the world of power electronics.
In the first episode, he and his guest Professor Frede Blaabjerg from Aalborg University took a look at the future of the industry and discussed trends and drivers. Peter Friedrichs, Senior Director Wide Bandgap at Infineon Technologies, joins the second episode and together with host Professor Jung, he talks about key application areas for WBG power semiconductors, among other topics. The episode "Key applications for WBG power semiconductors and future outlook" will be released in mid-February.
"Sound on. Power on." is available free of charge on all major streaming platforms as well as on the PCIM Europe website.
Power electronics live: PCIM Europe Talks
With the PCIM Europe Talks, an interactive event series with changing focus topics from the field of power electronics will also be starting soon. The one-day event will take place in rotating locations in German-speaking countries. The focus will be on interactive presentations and the "Meet & Talk" exchange format. Here, solution suppliers from the focus topic meet interested users in the context of discussions and compact training sessions. The PCIM Europe Talks are rounded off by excellent networking opportunities, e.g. at an evening get-together, and thus provide an ideal setting for exchanges between specialized experts. The kick-off event will take place on 27 June 2022 in Stuttgart and will focus on electromobility.
