The National Congress of Composite Materials is a biennial event that serves as a place for the exchange of ideas, where companies can expose their most recent advances and their future needs so that, together with the research centres, knowledge and development can be advanced towards a deeper understanding of composite materials.
This congress therefore provides a unique forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest results of research and innovation projects related to the field of composites and high performance materials. This year, the Congress aims to reinforce the presence of advanced materials in relevant sectors in Spain, such as aeronautics, the automotive industry, railways, capital goods and machining/tooling, etc.
CTAG will take advantage of the forum of specialists that meets in this congress to present the conclusions of FORTAPE project (H2020-FOF, nº 636860) and to show how the experience gained in this project was key to make a centre specialized in the automotive business, like CTAG, to find synergies and transfer possibilities in another technological sector, in this case in aeronautics, opening a new line of work in order to capitalize and add value to the wide experience acquired over years of research and specialized customer service. Thus, through the new AEROCAR project (Interreg SUDOE, SOE1 / P1 / E0020), it is possible to boost an upward sector that is already prioritized in the European Commission’s strategic innovation agendas, Member States and even for many regional governments, which will generate an important socio-economic impetus for the regions included in the European Southwest Space.
The MATCOMP 2017 congress will take place at the Kursaal Congress Hall in San Sebastian from June 21 to 23. Check here the full programme: http://matcomp2017.com/images/PROGRAMA-MATCOMP2017.pdf
