Workshop: Sustainable materials for the ocean industries

7th March 2018 at 09:4516:00

Event Navigation

NCE Maritime CleanTech, Danish Materials Network and NAPIC invite you to a workshop on lightweight materials and material capabilities.

Place: Stord Hotel
Time: March 7, 9:45 – 16:00
Participation fee: Free for cluster members. 1500 NOK for non-members

On the workshop’s program are presentations from NTNU Aluminium Product Innovation Center (NAPIC), Hydro and Future Materials. The Danish cluster Danish Materials Network, that NCE Maritime CleanTech started a cooperation with in 2017, will also be participating.

In December the two clusters were awarded 250,000 NOK from Innovation Express to a collaborative project on material technology. The Project will investigate topics such as the most optimal use of light weight materials in different structures; which production methods are most effective; and what material combinations are best based on life cycle analyses. The workshop is part of this project.
