Virtual Interreg AACOMA event in December 20

Thanks to technological advancement in material aspects and industry 4.0 technologies, composite materials are finding their way into mainstream industries. For many companies the use of composites is an opportunity to innovate. However, as an SME, it’s challenging to start prototyping and testing of advanced composite technologies.Join our virtual roadshow and learn the latest trends in the European composites market and the impact of the current COVID-19 crisis. We will explain the basics of composites and show a unique training program comprising the latest manufacturing technologies and guidelines on successful bonding of composite structures.  We also offer you the opportunity to talk directly with the research partners. Through an online matchmaking session we organise an open discussion on digitization, sustainability and disruptive technologies in the composites industry. Please register here for several events in December or contact Mona Ziegler.
