2022 Connecting Space Regions

Searching for the key to green lightweight structures

March 17th, 2022, (03:00 PM to 04:30 PM CEST)


Dear members and network partners,

in the Aeronautics and Space industry, more weight means higher costs. Therefore, for decades innovations and new products are constructed using lightweight materials. With the goal of zero emission aviation and greener space flight on the horizon, using lightweight materials has become more important than ever before. Also, the aspect of reusability and green construction is being considered more and more in the production process.


We cordially invite you to the next digital Connecting Space Regions Session.
