"Carbon neutrality" has gradually become a topic of widespread concern in society. As a "big carbon producer", the automotive industry bears the brunt. Lightweighting is an important way to save energy and reduce emissions in the automotive industry, and it is also an important issue for the automotive industry in the context of "carbon neutrality". Direction of development. In addition to reducing fuel consumption, the lightweight of the car can also effectively improve the driving control of the car.
On November 9-10, 2021, the first Global Lightweight Summit will be held online and offline at the Stuttgart Conference Center in Germany. Lightweight experts from various countries will gather in Stuttgart, Germany to participate in the 8th Global Lightweight Summit, whose slogan is "Innovation-Incentive-International". Participants will listen to lectures and discussions from international keynote speakers and lightweight technology experts from Germany, China, Europe and Canada.
The conference will show participants how lightweight technology solutions can bring companies a competitive advantage, and provide answers to current questions under the general theme of "achieving sustainable development through the practice of lightweight technology".
