The Fatigue4Light project takes part in the EU Green Week with a webinar on sustainable mobility organised in collaboration with the EnLightEVs cluster
The EnlightEVs cluster, participated by Fatigue4Light in collaboration with other European projects, organised the webinar “Towards a more sustainable mobility through the implementation of advanced solutions and lightweight materials in Electric Vehicles” which took place last 6th of June as part of the EU Green Week 2023.
During the webinar guest speakers and project’s representatives showcased different innovative solutions that can be rapidly applied in the automotive market to reduce Electric Vehicles’ weight promoting a more resilient and sustainable mobility.
Violeta Vargas, advanced researcher on Environmental Impact at Eurecat, participated in the webinar delivering the presentation “Towards a more accountable sustainable and circular mobility: The well-known eco-design and life cycle assessment pairing”, which introduced the main eco-design and Life Cycle Assessment methodology applied within the Fatigue4Light project.
In addition, representatives from ALMA, FLAMINGo, REVOLUTION and LEVIS, the other four European project taking part in the EnlightEVs cluster, participated in the event presenting the main innovations, developments and research done to contribute towards a more sustainable mobility and automotive sector.
The webinar also offered an insightful opening session from Maurizio Maggiore, Senior Expert at the DG Research of the European Commission, who highlighted the need for a holistic approach to lightweighting, considering life cycle assessments, and the crucial role of recycled materials.
The EU Green Week has the objective to encourage individuals, communities and organisations to take stronger action in future in order to protect, preserve and restore our environment, for now and for future generations, while constantly promoting sustainable development.
