Carbon Composites e.V. (CCeV) and VDI Wissensforum are organising their second joint lightweight engineering conference. Just like last year in Leipzig, designated experts and industry figureheads will present their concepts and strategies for tomorrow's transport at the 2018 lightweight engineering conference in Graz.
The lightweight engineering conference organised by CCeV and VDI Wissensforum will be held in Graz on 3 and 4 July 2018. Besides numerous lectures on the subject and opportunities for discussing all facets of the transport of the future, the visitors will also get the chance to gain an insight into the work of Magna Steyr and the TU Graz Virtual Vehicle research centre.
The conference will be chaired by Dipl.-Ing. Heinrich Timm, who has headed the Audi Leichtbauzentrum for many years and is a member of the CCeV board of directors. The highlight of the programme will be the presentation of the Lightweight Engineering Award, which is jointly awarded by the VDI and CCeV.
