Innovation project, Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, Austria

Hello there!
First of all, please dont be upset if you get this message more than once, this could be because you are in more than one google group. I
am desperately trying to contact people from all over the world, and spread the word about my project, so Im in all google groups...
I am student of the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration in Austria and I am currently engaged in a project about innovative solutions for the adjustment of car seats. The actual goal of our project is to conduct a workshop where we bring together people who find themselves confronted with unsatisfying solutions in the market and have ideas or innovated on their own already - and with market I do not only mean the target market of car seating systems but also analogous markets that face the same or very similar problems and needs. For example I was told that redundant forces of car seats are pretty similar to the ones of ski bindings so maybe its possible to use some materials and systems involved in the ski bindings to make the rails of a car seat lighter and to make them stronger, highly productive and/or powerful? Another thing we are thinking about is finding other materials than steel to be able to build a lighter rail the whole automotive industry is thinking about weight and how to get every part of car easier. Audi for example has made a car out of aluminium. But can you use it of seating rails, too? What about materials used in other industries like golf, sailplanes, aircraft, racing cars, iceboating, rollercoaster, elevators, military, . Would it be possible to use the materials they use?
As you can see there are numerous questions and I am sure that out there are numerous people agonising over those questions and even finding solutions to them. I am therefore interested in identifying such people, and bring them together to our workshop, which will offer co-operations, get to know like-minded people (from all over the world) and develop new cool ideas.
I hope I could attract some interest and maybe find some people through this group, and maybe if you aren't a person like I described above, maybe you do know someone that might be interesting for me.
Please don't hesitate to contact me Id be very thankful for every hint you could give me.
