The potential of digital twins is still largely untapped for cross-value chain and material-triggered process control. This also applies to plastic-based composite structures. The work at the Fraunhofer SCAI is aimed at the overarching and holistic consideration of all sub-process steps from semi-finished product to component manufacture. Relevant material, process and component characteristics (including fiber orientation, pore content, degree of consolidation, temperature, pressure, etc.) are to be measured and recorded if possible at local resolution throughout the entire real value chain in order to virtually model and analyze them. The challenge lies in the material- and process-related intelligent acquisition of the sensor data and their linkage with the continuous simulation chain within the framework of the digital twin. 

In his Innovation2Go presentation, Klaus Wolf, head of the Multiphysics Business Unit at the Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI, will give an overview of the digital twin for lightweight construction.

Note: The meeting will be held in English. Register already now so we can keep you updated with all further information. 

The WebTalk takes place across borders in the context of the "Digital Twin Academy" project. The Digital Twin Academy project is being carried out within the framework of Interreg V-A Euregio Meuse-Rhine with € 4,117,772.05 from the European Regional Development Fund. The federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia is contributing 30% of the funding for the North Rhine-Westphalian partners in this project.


With  „NMWP Innovation2GO“ the NMWP.NRW cluster offers the community a digital, compact and future-oriented event format: at regular intervals on Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. We want to end the day together with you with an online seminar on a current and inspiring topic relating to innovations and key technologies.

The registration process takes place as usual in two steps: Log in to the NMWP portal with your existing profile (or register in the portal with a profile) and then explicitly register for Innovation2GO WebTalk!

Note: This is a ZOOM WebTalk. Privacy information for our online meetings via ZOOM can be found at For the registration, you need a free profile in our NMWP portal, which is used to publish the list of participants. The terms of use and privacy policy for the NMWP portal can be found at

The topics of our WebTalks are chosen with the greatest possible care. The accuracy and validity of the content provided is the responsibility of the speakers. In order to make the talk available to a larger audience and thus increase innovation-promoting networking, we record your talk for later publication, for example on our YouTube channel (,

The WebTalk will be joined online via your own computer, so the event address is obsolete.
