ALIVE will develop directly exploitable knowledge on materials and design concepts which
offer a high potential for significantly reducing the weight of vehicles for affordable application to high productions volumes, focusing on next generation Electric Vehicles (EVs).
The project strives to generate substantial, tangible innovation in terms of vehicle design, materials, forming & joining technologies, simulation & testing and includes an exceptionally ambitious physical validation activity that will not only deliver a full structural demonstrator of all modules addressed but which will also include destructive crash and durability testing executed on the assembled modules including the entire body.
ALIVE - SEAM
The ALIVE project is co-funded by the European Community's 7th Framework Programme.
