At the beginning of the meeting, a keynote lecture was given by Mr. Stéphane Andrietti from the company Transvalor. Thereafter, the current results of all subprojects and the existing challenges related to the different joining techniques were discussed within two separate presentations. In the afternoon poster session, the coordinators of subprojects had the possibility to exchange ideas and present the outcomes of their work to the industrial guests which leaded to fruitful discussions.
We would like to thank the IFAM and the IBF for their hospitality and Mr. Andrietti for the interesting talk. Furthermore, hereby we want to express our gratuity to DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) for the support of the priority program.
