Metallic foams are much lighter that solid materials thanks to their special structure. In combination with other materials, special custom materials can be created with properties and attributes tailored to specific applications. The research project “InSeL” stands for innovative foam structures for efficient lightweighting. The project creates functionally optimized lightweight materials for industrial applications based on porous foam structures. More Information

About Project partner “InSeL”
The project is subsidized as a Center for Applied Research at Universities of Applied Sciences (ZAFH) with up to 1.5 million euros from the State of Baden-Württemberg and designated EU funds. The Universities of Pforzheim, Karlsruhe and Reutlingen work in collaboration with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the Natural and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Tübingen and the Fraunhofer Institute of Chemical Technology in Pfinztal.
