Lightweight Made in Europe: Challenges and Opportunities

27 Apr 2023
Agora 5
The decarbonization of the mobility sector and other strategic industries is a priority to the European Green Deal. Lightweighting is a key enabling technology that allows the production of components that are less energy-intensive and lead to lower CO2 emissions. Lightweight technologies can also improve resource efficiency and help companies to become more circular. But how can European lightweight technology remain competitive at a global scale? Join our panel forum where the economic and sustainability potential of lightweight technology made in Europe will be discussed,  centered around how to achieve European climate protection and sustainable development goals. The experts from the European Lightweight Cluster Alliance (ELCA) and the European Lightweight Association (ELA) will also discuss how lightweight products and technologies made in Europe could gain visibility and be implemented more quickly in global markets.
