Unfortunately, the 9th International Motors Workshop had to be postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic. As alternative, a two-day web event will be hosted by Copper Alliance in partnership with IFP Energies Nouvelles next 9 & 10 June 2020.

The workshop is a great opportunity to get informed about the latest developments on copper processing technologies for powertrain applications. Some of the projects currently working on innovative electric motor solutions will also be presented on the second day. European Copper Institute, IFP Energies Nouvelles, Breuckmann, Aurubis and University of L’Aquila will participate actively in the workshop.

The agenda for the two morning sessions (CET Time) is briefly indicated right below.
