Lightweight Technology is a key enabling technology that provides resource-friendly solutions, while at the same time adding commercial value, across all industries. Driven by mobility-linked challenges, lightweighting is the path to fundamental resource savings – up to 50 % in materials usage and up to 40 % in power consumption.
The Austrian Advanced Lightweight Technology Platform A2LT aims at strengthening the competitive position of its member businesses and aspires to build a strong Austrian position in lightweighting technology. With the collective strength of all partners A2LT is a thinktank and a collaboration platform empowering successful competition in the global market.
In an increasingly connected world, collaboration across borders is essential. The strong partnership within the European Lightweight Association ELA allows access to customers, technologies and best practices for all members’ businesses and research institutions within leading European regions.
At the same time, A2LT is an information and technology hub to make the public aware of the benefits of lightweight construction for the economy and for climate protection. These technologies along the lightweight construction value chain are not only expected to generate a multi-billion Euro market for businesses, but to also be able to contribute to a brighter future for coming generations.
