Workshop with industry representatives|
The workshop benefits the exchange of ideas between scientific research and industry.
The workshop aims to transfer the findings of the SPP1640 projects into industrial practice.
|18 October, 2017||
9th working group meeting|
In addition to presentations of the most recent research results of all the subprojects, it was discussed how to improve the comparability of the various forming and material joining processes.

Seventh working group meeting | Autumn meeting|
The participants of the three working groups present in Garching their results regarding one of the topics predictability, enhancement of the bond strength and functional characteristics of the joint.
|9 June, 2016||
for the third funding period of the priority program
The proposal colloquium for the third phase is planned to be organized at DFG in Bonn at 9 June.
|5 April, 2016||
Submission deadline for the proposals for the third phase|
The research proposals have to be submitted to the DFG in Bonn by 5 April. Please do not forget to send a copy to PtU as the coordinator of the priority program as well.

Sixth working group meeting | Autumn meeting|
Subsequent to the workshop, the autumn meeting of all working groups is organized. A major focus will be put on the proposals for the third and last period of the priority program.
|25 November, 2015||
Workshop with industrial companies|
Together with representatives from the industry, the participants of the priority program develop new project ideas around the topic of “joining by forming” regarding the future industrial application.
|24 March, 2015||
Fifth working group meeting | Spring meeting|
The participants of all three working groups meet in Chemnitz for the spring meeting.
Beginning of the second phase of the priority programme|
It now consists of 16 research projects. The basic principles for producing metallurgical, force- or form-closed joints by forming technologies will be investigated. The second phase will focus on reproducibility, fatigue strength and the joint mechanisms (in metallurgical joints).
