Presented paper focuses on intermediate outcomes of the bilateral project between the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, STU in Bratislava, Slovakia and the Institute of Automotive and Transport Engineering, UBFC in Nevers, France. Thus, mechanical properties and behaviour of glass fibre reinforced polymer composite foam cored sandwich panels joints were researched to estimate the best possible joint technology. Three-point bending and four-point bending were used to evaluate flexure strength
