The 2nd Polish-German Bridge Conference was a great success. Together with our cooperation partners, the Politechnika Opolska and the Politechnika Wrocławska, we have strengthen transnational networks between both countries as well as industry and research. In an interesting panel discussion and numerous lectures, representatives from politics, economics, and science of both countries analyzed and discussed the future and collaboration in the field of the interdisciplinary research topic lightweight construction. More than 180 leading scientists as well as representatives from industry and politics participated in the conference in order to advance the key technology of lightweight construction across borders.
The focus of the event was the solidarity between science partners and business enterprises of both countries. The conference was a platform for the diverse qualified exchange between research and industry and the launch of joint European projects. The accompanying trade exhibition supplemented the conference and offered an additional space for professional intensive meetings.
