ALIVE, ENLIGHT & epsilon Final Workshop

22.09.2016, Aachen


Global warming concerns have led to the demand for higher energy-efficiency in the automotive industry. At the same time urbanisation is closely connected with the evolution of mobility with cities becoming more and more the centres of economical and social activities. These factors create new needs, opportunities and technological challenges in the form of lighter, thus more energy efficient vehicles but also in terms of new vehicle concepts providing efficient and affordable, yet safe individual mobility for urban areas.

Within the three EU funded projects and ALIVE, ENLIGHT and epsilon, all related to the SEAM cluster of projects, different approaches and technologies to address these challenges have been developed. The SEAM cluster has been initiated in 2012 by the four EU funded projects SafeEV, ENLIGHT, ALIVE and MATISSE. All four projects have been funded within the European Green Vehicle Initiative (EGVI) as part of the seventh framework programme of the European Commission. In 2013 the two EGVI projects epsilon and Urban-EV joined the seam cluster. With 55 partners from 11 European countries and a total funding of some 25 million Euro SEAM is the biggest European network on lightweight design. The results of the projects will be displayed during the Aachen Body Engineering Days 2016 within a dedicated impulse session and exhibition.

Following the conference, on September 22nd 2016 the project partners will demonstrate and communicate the projects outcomes in detail and would also like to discuss their findings and recommendations with relevant stakeholders, industry partners and other research initiatives and interest groups You are kindly invited to join this free one day final event. The event will take place at the Institute for Automotive Engineering (ika) of RWTH Aachen University.
