The COSME-ELCA consortium is currently working for scheduling and organizing international missions between the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022.

The main goal of these mission is to seek for new opportunities on the international panorama for the European lightweight technologies, within a framework of collaboration with target countries’ partners. The missions will target different countries: from United Stated of America to Japan, from India to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates through Latin America.

By the end of the year, the first two missions, which will involve an exchange with Michigan (USA) and India, will take place online developing workshops, pitches, and matchmaking events for all the actors of the innovation in the lightweight sector: R&D labs, universities, and companies. Despite the current situation which forced the shift to online events, the COSME-ELCA consortium, is hopefully planning to hold some of the missions in presence for the next year.

In the upcoming weeks the COSME-ELCA team will update all the information to attend the first events.

If you are interested to participate and to contribute to future events, please contact Nicolò Bertolini ( who is coordinating the programme development of the missions.
