Seeking innovative material and manufacturing technologies to enable cost-efficient lightweighting in high-volume automotive applications
Project Size 2,000,000 € · Deadline : 2018-03-01
The ALLIANCE partners are giving the opportunity to large and small companies, research centres, universities, and even individuals with innovative lightweighting technologies, to submit their ideas, co-develop them with the OEMs, suppliers, and knowledge partners of ALLIANCE, and shape the vehicles of tomorrow. Do you have a specific idea or concept (material or manufacturing) on how to achieve lightweighting in vehicles? Does your technology show potential to reduce the GWP impact in a life-cycle perspective? Is it affordable? Can it be implemented in high-volume vehicle production? Win the opportunity to co-develop your innovations with six leading automotive OEMs (Daimler, Opel, Toyota, Volvo, Volkswagen, CRF - the Research Centre of FCA) and four suppliers (ThyssenKrupp, Novelis, Batz, Benteler). The winning technologies will be implemented on existing vehicle parts and presented at a dedicated side event of the Aachen Body Engineering Days 2018! The ALLIANCE project is co-funded by the European Commission’s H2020 programme.
