4th Hybrid Materials and Structures 2020

"Hybrid Materials and Structures 2020" covers the entire spectrum of topics, from basic materials to design, from production to application, and thus provides the basis for an in-depth understanding of application-specific material and component behavior. The only limitation is the focus on material combinations that perform structural tasks in some way.

More than the sum of their parts!

Very often, innovative materials act as trailblazers for the introduction of new technologies and products. Hybrid materials and structures made or joined from several individual components are playing an increasingly important role in the industrial applications of mechanical engineering and construction.

Special Session: "Intrinsic Hybrid Composites"

In multi-material design, hybrid composites joined by downstream processes such as bonding or welding are already established, but often do not fully exploit the lightweight potential. An intrinsic hybrid composite, however, is an integral component in which the various materials are joined in the consolidation or forming process of the metal- or plastic-based component. Hybrid 2020 is dedicating a special session to these material systems.

The conference offers a diverse mix of short talks, poster presentations and poster forums. In addition, the interdisciplinary exchange between science and industry will enable extended networking among the participants.

A DFG priority programme on intrinsic hybrid composites and a German-Canadian graduate school on hybrid fibre composites, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is home of two major research collaborations dedicated to this class of materials. This also applies to numerous industrial companies, especially from the automotive and supplier industries, and non-university research institutions in the Karlsruhe technology region.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Karlsruhe!

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
