On May 19, VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH organized the Future Talk on Materials Research in Ingolstadt on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), this time under the title "Materials innovations for sustainability and climate protection - focus on electromobility".

Citizens were offered an informative and entertaining insight into new developments as well as the opportunity to discuss with researchers. This also included a science slam on new research areas. Researchers had seven minutes each to present their field of research as entertainingly and comprehensibly as possible.

David May presented his junior research group "Topology-optimized and resource-efficient composites for mobility and transport", which is funded by BMBF at IVW. He won first place with his presentation, which discussed, among other things, the similarities between algorithms for topology optimization, the game Jenga, and the weather map on the evening news. Congratulations!
