Invitation – Nordic Network on Biofibers
FiberTies – Biocomposites and Textiles
– Financed by Nordic Forest Research (SNS) and Nordic Joint Committee for Agricultural and Food Research (NJK)
The FiberTies network cordially invites you to a workshop and networking event on May 15th & 16th 2018 . The FiberTies network welcomes companies and institutions who are interested in participating in project meeting with all partners at the partner institute VTT, Espoo, Finland. The purpose of this meeting is to establish one or more project groups for a large grant application. The focus will be on new possibilities, alternative materials, interesting products and business development in the area of biobased fibers. The event extends over two days with different themes, with talks and presentation of VTT facilities including a tour of the pilot research facilities. Topics include one-material composites, non-woven textiles and functional structures by 3D printing. Young researchers and PhD students are encouraged to join the project meeting workshop thereby contributing to the discussion on the way forward for more industrial use of nonfossil, non-food biobased fibres. Limited budget for contributions to the travel costs are available.
The deadline for registration is May 1st 2018.
Participation is free of charge
