Lightweight materials are key to the Mobility of the Future in order to increase energy efficiency and driving distance. Introducing new materials and materials combinations come with challenges and opportunities for new kinds of designs and manufacturing methods. Key challenges lie in optimization of material performance, safety, production costs, the use of critical raw materials, and recyclability.
The workshop addresses innovation and education in the field of lightweight material solutions for the automotive market as well as aviation and aerospace. The event will be used as a platform to present results of EIT RawMaterials projects in the field and to reach out to external partners from industry and academia. High strength steels, fiber reinforced composites, aluminum and magnesium alloys as well as ceramics and biomaterials will be considered. There will be room for discussions, matchmaking and finding new partners for future collaboration activities.
