Proven automotive-based solutions (products and services) as enablers for sustainable aerospace

Zero-emission mobility as a common goal across industries – whether on the road, in the air or in space – motivates us to develop advanced automotive-based solutions for the future of mobility. We believe that it is key to utilize synergies across these industries to speed up and enable the technological transition. We will present the preliminary research results of our H2 activities. We will focus on the benefits, potentials and hurdles for future aerospace solutions based on our experience in different product areas and projects such as fuel cell peripheral components, automotive-based high precise microelectronics, advanced adhesive manufacturing processes and advanced electronic manufacturing solutions.
