New mobility concepts and the impact on the material value chain!

The conference program is crafted to highlight real-world initiatives, projects and technologies on materials related to the following topics in mobility:

  • Electrification
  • Digitalization
  • Autonomous systems
  • New mobility concepts

These topics will fundamentally change the way we think about mobility as a whole, and will have a major impact on the various value-chains. As a consequence it will create a significant shift in use of materials, which will have an impact on material development, like:

  • Lightweighting
  • Ability to embed electronics, lighting and sensing devices
  • Durability / Cleanability of materials and coatings
  • Noise reduction, thermal management, vibration management
  • Sustainability (Life Cycle Assessment)
  • Recyclability
  • Production technologies like Additive Manufacturing and hybrid technologies

Most fundamentally, succeeding in the emerging mobility landscape will likely require materials companies to dramatically re-evaluate how they do business. Instead of the traditional approach of developing a new material, companies have to collaborate across the value chain, from design to full-scale production with a multidisciplinar team. Approaches could vary from formal partnerships to joint ventures to participation in cross-industry mobility-focused consortia.

During the Materials for Future Mobility Conference the (inter)national speakers will present their view and experience on material innovations related to the fast changing mobility industry.
