Design of functional hybrid structures and their flexible and efficient production are key to meeting increasing demands on costs, raw material use and energy consumption. Hybrid components that combine the advantages of different materials offer great potential in these areas. In order to take advantage of the potential benefits of these high-tech components, it is essential to develop innovative processes

for serial production. The Conference on Future Production of Hybrid Structures (FPHS) addresses these innovative production processes and provides an ideal stage for discourse between international leaders of industry and research. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Wolfsburg for an exciting dialog on cutting edge production technologies.

For the fifth time already and for the first time under a new name, the conference on the future production of hybrid structures (FPHS) will take place on September 23, 2020 at the MobileLifeCampus in Wolfsburg. For two days, experts from science and industry will discuss current trends, developments and innovative approaches in the field of hybrid lightweight construction, from design to use and end of life. The conference is organized by the TU Braunschweig under the direction of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Dröder in cooperation with the LeichtbauCampus Open Hybrid LabFactory.

Due to the current situation around Covid-19, the conference will be held exclusively in digital form.
