IOM3 Supported

Following global growth and expansion, GALM USA Detroit is returning with a brand new program on how to 'Implement Lightweighting Innovations & Optimize Multi-Material Architectures For EVs, Autonomous Vehicles & Next Gen ICEVs.

The 2019 GALM Europe Summit features a brand new programme with two full days focusing on the theme of High Performance Lightweight Materials for Electric Vehicle Body and Battery Protection Structures. 

The conference will analyse how OEMs are becoming increasingly creative in the search for innovative multi-material solutions to reduce car body weight, to improve the vehicle range and overall performance, and ultimately to drive higher volume of BEVs. The rapid transition to a new generation of EV, autonomous and ICEV platforms, architectures and lightweight structures is driving new opportunities for advanced technology adoption and engineering innovation - but also creating potentially disruptive challenges for vehicle designers, engineers and their suppliers. 

With a brand new agenda, the Summit will provide important insights and understanding through an unrivaled mix of in-depth technical sessions, case study-led presentations and interactive panel discussions on the hottest issues, enabling greater interaction between speakers and delegates than ever before. 

Meet technical leaders and chief engineers with leading OEMs and EV, autonomous vehicle start-ups - responsible for advanced design, body engineering, simulation and predictive modelling, lightweight high strength metals and composites, manufacturing processes and automation.
