The journey of innovation – what are the key factors that enable companies to innovate successfully?
What are some of the emerging exciting lightweighting technologies with positive environmental impacts that could become popular across multiple industries?
How are companies re-devising supply-chain strategies in the wake of the pandemic or post-pandemic?

Meet a few of the Altair Enlighten Award winners for answers to these questions and more!

Hosted by Altair in conjunction with the Center of Automotive Research (CAR), the webinar will highlight the success of the Altair Enlighten Award in elevating initiatives to advance vehicle lightweighting.  A panel discussion with leading industry pioneers will review how technology advancements at both the component or assembly level, as well as for full vehicles have advanced the impetus for vehicle lightweighting.
