During Dec 25th-27th, 2021, the same days of the China Composites Expo 2021 (CCE2021), Automotive Composites Innovation Program (AIP) will be launched for the fifth year by the Organizing Committee of CCE2021.

Since 2017, when AIP was launched for the first edition, it has attracted a good stream of visitors and turned out to be the very highlight, which makes CCE an important platform for communication between Composites Industry and Automotive Industry home and abroad. For this year, AIP will continue to introduce those big innovations on products and technologies in automotive composites industry worldwide.

For now, we have invited big carmakers as Audi, Renault, JEEP, Changan Auto, NIO, GEELY, FAW; big Tier 1 suppliers as Faurecia, Voith, Valeo, Frimo, HRC, LG Hausys, Coleitec, Feize, etc; big raw material suppliers as Dupont, Arkema, Hexion, Owens Corning, Covestro, Ineos, Teijin, etc; Manufacturers as Krauss-Maffei, Dieffenbach, Engel, Fagor Arrasate, etc; Institutes as Fraunhofer ICT, ACTC, etc; Organization as VDMA. They will show to the visitors, by displaying innovations and delivering speeches, the current situation and future development of the world automotive composites industry.

We helped to explore the secret of composite use in BMW i3 (2017), to introduce System Integrated Multi-Material Lightweight Design for E-mobility from SMiLE Project (2018), to uncover the Aerodynamic and Acoustic Optimization of the Underbody of Fully Electrified Vehicles Audi E-tron (2019), and to introduce the achievement of National Science and Technology Major Project (2020).

We displayed more than 80 innovative automotive parts on site and 450 more on the I3p platform.

CCE2020, the concerns over whose delay or cancellation never ceased until its opening, was successfully held as planned from September 3rd-5th, at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center, marking itself the first major composites event convened after the outbreak of COVID-19.

Same as the past four editions, the program this year will include three parts as follows:
