Industrial lightweighting technology developments: a European perspective and materials applications in Emilia-Romagna

Submitted by Federico Capucci on 01 May 2021


The event is promoted by MAMM-ER, Clust-ER MECH's working group dedicated to advanced materials, and by ELCA Internationalization Project. The event will open with an overview by ELCA network on industrial lightweight processes at a European level and with the presentation of a project aiming at the internationalization of the “lightweight made in Europe” competences. 

The meeting will then focus on the presentation of lightweighting solutions through the application of innovative polymeric materials and of new metal alloys for additive manufacturing, with the contribution of international guests.

The event will be in English.
