EIT RawMaterials Expert Forum Mobility

Expert Forum on Sustainable Materials for Future Mobility. Electrification & Lightweight Design.

Our Expert Forum on Sustainable Materials for Future Mobility. Electrification & Lightweight Design will take place on 7-9 October 2019 in Turin, Italy. The goal of the event is to trigger cross-value chain interaction and strategic alliances among European stakeholders that drive innovation in these sectors.

Sustainable raw materials and advanced materials are key enablers for a successful Mobility Transition. The dramatic shift towards mass-market e-mobility has been triggered by the need for reducing COemissions and improving air quality in cities. This development generates a growing demand for new kinds of functional and structural materials. These materials contribute significantly to the overall cost of mobility, its environmental and social footprint, and the global supply chain dependencies that respective OEMs will have to cope with. The ambition of a Zero Emission Mobility will have to account for the ecological footprint of its enabling materials.

The workshop will gather innovators from across emerging value chains in electrification and lightweight design.

Specific objectives: 

  • Discussing overall trends.
  • Identifying industry needs and innovative solutions.
  • Networking for project and strategic alliances.
  • Providing information on funding opportunities, incl EIT RawMaterials funding.
