Pushing the boundaries in Transportation with Composites
Start: 05 Mar 2021, 09:30
End: 05 Mar 2021, 15:45
Location: Chalmers Teknikpark, Sven Hultins gata 9C, Teknikparkens Konferenscenter, room Poseidon, Göteborg
Welcome to the 5th annual composite seminar co-organized by Chalmers and LIGHTer.
This year we focus on the future lightweight vehicles in different transportation areas. There are many generic issues that must be addressed in order to lower the emissions using lightweight structures. During the day we look forward to extensive and interesting discussions.
We have an exciting programme and we are happy to welcome speakers from many different industrial sectors, such as space, aeronautics, automotive and maritime.
