Conference on Fiber Reinforced Composite Materials
New Materials – New Markets
The Danish innovation network PlastNet has obtained the opportunity to organize a conference with international participation. The organizing committee has chosen Fiber Reinforced Compo-sites as the main theme for the conference with a focus on the latest developments and trends, as well as the future outlook of the field of composite materials and structures.
The objective of this conference is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research and technology on all aspects of composite structures and materials. The aim is to represent a forum for exchanging ideas, presenting the latest developments and trends, pro-posing new solutions and promoting international collaborations. Moreover, the objective is to provide an opportunity for national and international delegates from industrial, research, and academic insti¬tutions to interact and share their knowledge, to learn about innovative technologies in the field, and to discuss future directions.
We will present speakers that are worldwide recognized researchers and prestigious representatives from the industry.
Topics that will be discussed are latest development within resins, additives, carbon fibers as well as recycling of thermoset composite materials. There will be an opportunity to participate in workshops and speed dating during the conference and of course in a lot of networking.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference, which is held in Esbjerg, Denmark.
