HYPEREGIO - B2B Brokerage Workshop “E-Mobility meets Lightweight”

The growing impact of lightweight materials and design in the automotive industry is undisputed. Global trends go towards resource efficiency and environmental friendliness. Material savings, reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are key to success.

At our event, you will get to know entrepreneurs, SMEs and institutes in our cross-border HYPEREGIO, the traditional home of the RWTH Aachen University and its clusters for lightweight and production technologies or more recently, e.GO and StreetScooter.

We support you in finding your right cooperation partner for your projects in this dynamic and future-oriented market. We are looking at the complete value chain, from the raw material producer to OEMs and services. Keynote speeches inform about market trends, future orientations, speed dating and matchmaking services allow to work on your synergies.
