Lightweighting Workshop

On behalf of the BMK, the Lightweighting Platform A2LT cordially invites you to the Lightweighting Stakeholder Workshop BMK – FFG Eureka Lightweighting Call.

The BMK has initiated the first Eureka Lightweighting Call and focuses the funding on mobility applications. In addition to Austria, eight other partner countries Belgium, France, Canada, Luxembourg, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain and South Korea are participating in the Call. BMK expects a strong call participation to contribute to the creation and strengthening of transnational value chains and thus to support common ecological goals with the call partners.

In the stakeholder workshop, you will also receive information on transnational BMK activities to promote lightweighting (European Lightweighting Network, national lightweighting study) for mobility applications.
Questions about call modalities and contents can be addressed directly to the FFG responsible persons. In the workshop you can introduce your R&D topics, present project ideas and network national competences.

WHEN: 26.01.2023, 12:00 – 17:30
WHERE: Wirtschaftskammer Österreich, Franz Dvorak Saal, Wiedner Hauptstraße 63, 1045 Wien
