    The symposium will focus on new or alternative drive and mobility concepts with their specific requirements on vehicle architecture and their effects on customers and society. While materials play a central role with regard to the requirements on the vehicle architecture, for customers above all the driving experience and for society the effects on the environment are gaining in importance. The Fraunhofer IST will contribute to the conference program with several contributions. The programm will start with the keynote lecture by Prof. Dr. Christoph Herrmann on ”sustainable production and life cycle engineering”.
