You are cordially invited to join us on Tuesday, 9 April for a conference on “Thermoplastic Composites”. The event, organized by Carbon Composites Schweiz and the “Thermoplastic composites” working group of Carbon Composites e.V. (CCeV), is targeted towards decision makers, engineers and technicians who would like to get the latest information on the state-of-the-art and the most recent developments in the field of thermoplastics with continuous fiber reinforcement.
The conference will take place from 10:00 unitl 17:00 in room QIE 0108 at the EPFL Innovation Park.
Registration is free of charge for members of Carbon Composites Schweiz and costs CHF110 for non-members.
