The lightweight design research in the field of fiber-plastic composites is a successful research focus at the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus - Senftenberg.

Along the product-oriented value chain, the international and interdisciplinary team of the chair of Polymer-based Lightweight Design deals with the cross-industry development of energy-efficient lightweight design solutions and associated production technologies.

Starting from the initial idea, through the design of prototypes, to the technical implementation of complex technology demonstrators, the focus is primarily on the design and simulation as well as on the manufacture and testing of function-integrative multi-material design methods, using fiber-plastic composites and metals.
