2nd meeting of the European Lightweighting Network

The 2nd meeting of the European Lightweighting Network took place 23rd and 24th of September 2021 in Vienna as a two-day conference. Participants examined the potential of lightweighting to reach the Green Deal objectives and worked on a common stance on what is needed to promote lightweighting on a European level.

To set up and foster a political exchange of views on the contribution of lightweighting technologies towards the European Green Deal objectives, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) hosted together with the Austrian lightweighting network Austrian Advanced Lightweight Technology (A2LT), the Austrian Association for Advanced Propulsion Systems (A3PS) and the Austrian Institute Of Technology (AIT) the 2nd Meeting of the European Lightweighting Network.  

Succeeding the first online meeting hosted by Germany in 2020, the follow-up conference was organised as a two-day on-site event. Day 1 was also live-streamed. In key notes, panels, open discussions and a world café, participants from European states, industry, research and civil society examined the lightweighting potential to reach the Green Deal objectives from different angles and developed a common stance on what is needed to promote lightweighting on a European level.
