LightMAT 2023

LightMAT 2023 was the 5th International Conference on Light Materials – Science and Technology. The conference was held on 21-23 June 2023 in a hybrid format. The event provided a platform for academic and industrial researchers, scientists, and engineers to present and discuss the recent development and progress made in Magnesium, Aluminium, Titanium and their alloys and materials combinations. The materials were viewed individually or in multi-material designs, including processing, joining, and corrosion protection. In addition, LightMAT 2023 focused on Eco-Efficiency in materials and processes.

The key question was:

What are the innovative research business models for materials and material processes shearing with industrial needs for contributing to the accelerated material circularity, sustainability, and also to the dematerialization of our economy related to less dependency on primary materials?
