Sustainability & Nanotechnology At the Nonwovens Research Academy 2008, a special emphasis will be put on bio-engineering and raw materials from renewable sources to illustrate the commitment and the efforts of nonwoven and related industries towards sustainability.
Due to its growing importance, nanotechnology and its impact on the nonwovens industry will feature prominently on the programme.
Shape your future by meeting representatives from top companies:
The Nonwovens Research Academy aims to promote fundamental understanding and knowledge of the science and technology of nonwoven fabrics, products and processes as well as related disciplines.
The Academy will bring together an interdisciplinary group of academics, students, researchers, scientists and engineers to present and disseminate pre-competitive and post-competitive research studies relevant to the nonwoven industry worldwide, with a focus on Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The Grant will cover travel, accommodation, food and beverages expenses and participation fee in the Nonwovens Research Academy.
