This next event offered by the European Lightweight Cluster Alliance (ELCA) and the European Business and Technology Centre New Dehli (EBTC) will contain inspiring and informative presentations about European lead lightweight opportunities for Indian businesses as well as targeted Business-to-Business (B2B) sessions where one can gain new valuable knowledge and create new business contacts.

ELCA is a collaborative initiative that aims to accelerate the adoption of lightweight materials in strategic industries. In its first years the focus was laid on the aeroplane and automotive industry, but recently ELCA has been exploring a wide range of sectors that could benefit from lightweighting. The ELCA alliance is creating a unique inclusive business framework for exploring lightweight-driven market opportunities. The main partners of ELCA jointly comprise a pan-European network of 2330 entities, including SMEs, Large Enterprises and Research Technology Organisations. These partners collaborate intensively to facilitate funding opportunities, activities and a joint online platform to help their members strengthen their market position and therefore accelerate the adoption of lightweight materials. Lately, ELCA has been aiming to expand its collaborations with partners outside of the EU.

By joining this event you can gain insights of the growing business opportunities of lightweight technologies in the automotive and aerospace market of India. Furthermore you will have the opportunity to meet ambitious entrepreneurs, cluster managers and business supporters from India and Europe.

That B2B event is part of a joint strategic collaboration of ELCA, the European Business and Technology Centre New Dehli and their local EEN supporters.
