On 26th September a symposium on new developments and products will take place in Detmold. The program includes lectures from science and research as well as applications.

In light of discussions about avoiding CO2 emissions, the trend towards lightweight construction continues. As a partner, interzum therefore supports the symposium in Detmold in the planning and realisation.

Three thematic blocks

In twelve lectures the symposium will highlight forward-looking developments. Divided into three thematic blocks, well-known speakers will discuss groundbreaking topics under the categories digitalization, sustainability and innovation. Current research results are just as much a focus as new products and production techniques.

Innovative and sustainable solutions

The symposium begins with a keynote address on the future of digitization in lightweight construction. In addition to the question of what role Virtual Reality can play for the furniture industry, the first lecture block also deals with data-based production methods. The lecture block Sustainability introduces new products such as the flexible Aerowood panel and other sustainable solutions. The fact that the developments of lightweight construction are far from finished will be shown in the Innovation theme block.

Networking opportunities

In addition to networking, there is also the opportunity to visit an accompanying exhibition with lightweight construction products between the lecture blocks. A "hot chair" gives visitors the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers. The program will be rounded off with an evening event.

The symposium will be held in German at the location of Jowat SE in Detmold. Further information can be found on the website of the Interessengemeinschaft Leichtbau e.V.
