ASCII Nachtcafé

On September 16, ASCII is launching a new format to make the exciting world of supply chain research accessible to interested parties outside of science and politics: the ASCII Nachtcafé. This is a series of events in which current topics can be discussed informally over snacks and drinks.

At the first event, we will explore the question “How can research make a meaningful contribution to the development of supply chains?”. ASCII director Peter Klimek will be discussing with ASCII president Franz Staberhofer and vice president Gabriel Felbermayr. The panel will be happy to receive questions and suggestions from the audience. There will also be an opportunity for networking afterwards. 

When: September 16, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Where: Dachatelier VinziRast, Währinger Straße 19, 1090 Vienna

Language: The whole event will be held in German.

Our annual Advisory Board meeting took place last week, where we were able to discuss welcome input for the future direction of ASCII. Society at large is at an inflection point: Not only do we have wars on our doorstep, but we also have to meet the challenges of the green transition. As a result, the export-led economic growth model of recent years is increasingly unraveling.
The European Union is imposing provisional countervailing duties of 21% on battery electric vehicles (BEVs) imported from China from July 4, 2024. This move follows an investigation that found evidence of WTO-inconsistent subsidies for Chinese BEVs. Imports of Chinese vehicles could fall significantly, but prices for electric cars are unlikely to change much in the long term.
