For all of us, 2020 marks the end of a special year. The Covid 19 pandemic hit us all unexpectedly hard and changed our lives significantly. Many planned face-to-face events and activities of Composites United had to be almost entirely cancelled, instead we have introduced web seminars and video conferencing.

Following Charles Darwin’s famous quote that adaptation to change promises the greatest success, we reacted very quickly and digitised our service. After numerous web seminars with several thousand participants, our first strategy workshop was continued virtually at our new location in Berlin in November and the first purely virtual general meeting was also successfully held with more than 100 participants.

This would not have been possible without our staff, members, fellow campaigners, partners and supporters. For this we thank you all and we are very proud of what we have achieved together.

For the year 2020, we thank you for the good and understanding cooperation, your valued support and sharing all of our passion for multi-material lightweight construction.

We wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas season and for 2021, above all, good health, good luck, good business and as much normality as possible soon again.

Best regards,

Prof. Dr. Hubert Jäger, Prof. Dr. Dieter Meiners, Alexander Gundling und Dr. Gunnar Merz
