International Composites Congress

International AVK Conference

5 - 6 November 2018

For the fourth time the International Composites Congress (ICC) takes place as the opening event of COMPOSITES EUROPE. Focussing on the topic "Composites - On the Path to Becoming a Key Industry?", international experts discussed current topics which could be further enhanced during the subsequent tour of COMPOSITES EUROPE.

Lectures on the following themes will be presented at the 4th ICC: 

  • Efficient processes / Integrative production technology / Additive Manufacturing
  • Multimaterial-solutions
  • Market developments
  • SMC / BMC
  • Pultrusion
  • Responsible care (sustainability, recycling)
  • Standardisation
  • Hybrid Thermoplasti Molding
  • Cooperations (industry-research, industry-industry)
